Collision ties up (almost) all the loose ends in the Prophecy universe


Today our good friend Lea Kirk is my guest on Spacefreighters. You already know she has a new book out, the third in her Prophecy series. I thought I'd ask Lea why she wrote Collision.

Here's her response.
I could say it was because more than one person told me that readers prefer book series of at least three stories, or more. Or that once my brain got going, it didn’t want to stop with Alex and Gryf’s story. Or even—as my family suspects—that I wrote this one so I could have the redheaded children nature denied me.

All of this may be true, or not, but I cannot deny that I adore Flora and Fander and the vital role they fill toward lasting peace in the Prophecy universe. I have been excited about their story since the first glimmers of the idea filtered into my consciousness. Before they even had names—which is hard to fathom now.

Collision is the third book in my Prophecy series, and the one that ties up almost all the loose ends. It completes the invasion-arc of the series so I can turn my focus to stories of post-invasion survival and rebuilding. “Real life” stories that don’t necessarily spell doom for Earth/Terr, Matir, and Anferthia. I want to write those stories too, so watch for them. They are coming. Maybe as early as the holidays if I’m super diligent.

In the meantime, check out Collision and discover that not all aliens are little green men.

Collision, Book Three of the Prophecy Series
 
A heart-rending loss…
Flora Bock will never forgive the Anferthian invaders for murdering her birth-parents. Growing up with the grandson of her sworn enemies is living a nightmare—until the day she sees him through the eyes of a young woman. But giving her heart to him is the ultimate betrayal of her parents’ memory.

A life in peril…
There are precious few places in the galaxy where Fander K’nil is safe. One look into Flora’s beautiful, hate-filled eyes is proof enough that Terr is not one of those places. He must keep her at a distance and stay alive long enough to fulfill his destiny. No matter what his heart desires.

An empire at stake…
Just as Fander and Flora begin to discover the depth of their feelings for each other, they are thrust into a deadly game of politics and assassination with an enemy who stops at nothing to stay in power. With the lives of everyone they love at risk, they must find a way to avert a new invasion before it’s too late—even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.

Here's an excerpt to whet your appetite. 

Fander gave her a grin. “Yes. But, here’s the difference. I intend to convince you to marry me.”
Gods, he loved seeing her cheeks turn pink. She took a half step back and raised her chin. “It’ll never work.”
“Pfft. So you say.”
She pointed toward the portal. “You remember what you did back there on my planet, right? You laid the groundwork for a civil war. Your people might, might, accept me as tangol because that bond is part of your culture, but as your wife? I’m a Terrian. Lots of them will hate me for that reason.”
“Once, you hated me for being Anferthian.”
She lowered her arm and blinked, twice. Three times. Four, five. If she had to think about it that long, then he almost had her. He stepped into her personal space and cupped his palm along her jaw. “But, you changed your mind, didn’t you?”
Her tongue darted over her lips. “You think we could change their minds?”
“I’d like to try.”
