Welcome to the universe of Galactic Dreams, where fairy tales are reimagined for a new age—the future.
Galactic Dreams is a series of science-fiction novellas from Blue Zephyr Press featuring retellings of classic tales from different authors, all sharing the same universe, technology, and history.
In each Galactic Dreams Volume 1 novel you’ll meet a heroine struggling to make her way in the vast universe who has to learn to fight for herself and the people she loves. Each tale introduces you to a new part of a shared universe, with technological wonders and unique dangers.
In each Galactic Dreams Volume 2 novel you’ll find an old tale reborn with a mixture of romance, technology, aliens and adventure. But this time, each prince and princess, each band of intrepid heroes, is fighting the same enemy – an entity so vast that he can span centuries and not everyone is guaranteed to survive.
Less than five pages into reading this beautiful book, I was hooked! … This was easily one of the best books I picked up since the year began.
With one prick of the finger, her whole world will change.
Chavri Aisling should have died on her naming day. Instead, after being poisoned during an assassination attempt, she lives her life hiding behind masks, veils, and force-fields, never able to share the same air as anyone else. But the princess of Moarga Province is determined not to let her illness stop her from finding the one thing her planet desperately needs—metal that can be used to make more space ships so that her people can find the other lost colonies of Earth. Her search takes her into an unexplored corner of her solar system where a terrifying discovery leaves her frozen. Resuscitated by the least-likely prince over three generations later, Chavri has one chance to save what’s left of Moarga from invasion, and the love of her life from a fate worse than death.
