Luska is an intimate space opera and a rich portrait of human society tens of thousands of years in the future, a singular blend of science and high drama with a large cast of characters from distinct cultures and languages, where author Will Robinson draws upon his background in anthropology and passion for science to create a richly drawn universe. Lovers of intrigue, intricate yet intimate plots with non-traditional characters will be a fan of Luska.
Knowing the future can be burdensome, especially if that future is filled with death and destruction. In the science fiction novel, Luska, Eidi Nimogen finds herself aware that her world is speeding toward cataclysm, yet there is nothing she can do, or so it seems.
Witty, dour, and sheltered, Eidi is a unique, precognitive, young woman born on the divided planet of Luska and in a galaxy dominated by humanity and seemingly devoid of alien life. Eidi and her family must struggle to survive an invasion from a Byzantine, brutal culture where the only escape is to flee to a mysterious, hellish, jungle planet. There they make unlikely allies of an enigmatic AI and former enemies as they struggle against shape-shifting, mind-controlling deities, nightmare simians, deadly parasites, and a surprising, tyrannical foe from their home planet of Luska.
But the real danger lies in the showdown that is taking place between a long dormant alien race called the Jadujj or Deathedge, and the anti-alien, god-like Eth, where the ramifications of their confrontation could decide the future of the galaxy and the direction of humanity.
Will Robinson is a local history and genealogy librarian in WIlson, but he lives in Wake County. He plays frisbee with his border collie when he is not drowning in coffee and writing his millionth bestselling query letter. On nice days he likes to hike, fish, and wrestle with Ikea directions. He has an ancestor who saw a king once, but another ancestor said that was BS.
