DESTINY IN THE STARS YA Edition

Gorgenia Ralph

Destiny is a young woman with extraordinary powers that could rival the gods.  She is abducted from Earth by mean alien grey men called Veron, and taken light years from her home.  Upon reaching their destination they are attacked and shot down by the Destroyers.  These men are soldiers.  They are enlisted by the Council to protect the galaxy from a terrible threat, nasty creatures called Phant.  The Veron are spreading this terror throughout their worlds.  Destiny must use her power to survive.  But fearful, she keeps them hidden from everyone.     

$4.99

Zeuz is Commander of the Destroyers.  It was his ship that fired upon them causing them to crash.  He and his men land on the planet to retrieve any and all data from the Veron ship.  When surface scans show a nest they are soon in a battle for survival.  The nest must be destroyed at all cost.  In the mists of battle and to everyone's disbelief an unarmed woman had survived the crash and the Phant.  The Destroyers take her with them and it isn't long before the attraction between Destiny and Zeuz shows its light. 

She is taken to Ulzan II, the asteroid home of the Destroyers.  She goes before the Council but they won't let her leave.  The Phant threat is too great.  There she will meet Zeuz's family and is left to stay with them.  Her love for Zeuz shows through when an attack on a neighbouring planet forces the Destroyers to leave Ulzan II sooner than expected, Destiny begs to go with Zeuz.  But his feelings for her would not allow him to be put her in such a dangerous position.  

Hours after the Destroyers leave Ulzan II is under attack.  Phant eggs that had been smuggled onto the planet have hatched and everyone is in danger.  Destiny is forced to use her power openly to protect those she has come to care for.  The Destroyers are called back by Council order.  When Zeuz learns of her powers he is afraid for her.  The Council didn't like being lied to and it could cost her her life.

EXCERPT

   

IT WAS LIKE A scene from a movie a young woman driving, alone, on a deserted road at night.  The car putters out and rolls to a stop.  Her every attempt to restart the car ended in failure, which only added to her frustration.  Sighing heavily, she leaned her head against the steering wheel and closed her aqua blue eyes with a starburst of hazel in the middle.  Her chestnut coloured locks fell softly off her shoulders.  All she wanted was a nice quiet vacation.  Was that really such a terrible thing?

The car shook slightly.  She slowly lifted her head and looked around.  Her two tone coloured eyes checked the mirrors and still she saw nothing.  Feeling uneasy she placed a protective shield around herself.  Something she had been able to do since childhood.

"That was strange, there isn't any wind."  The woman said barely above a whisper.

The car shook again.  The young woman let out a startled squeak unable to stop herself.  Her hand reached quickly for the button to roll up the windows.  She pressed the button again and nothing happened.

Power she needed power.  Reaching for the ignition, she turned the key.  Once again the car would not start.  Shock registered in her unique eyes when she suddenly realized that she wasn't glowing and her shield was not up.

The light came from above her.  It was bright and blinding.  The young woman shielded her eyes against it.  A strange feeling crept over her.  She was light headed and dizzy.  Unable to fight it, darkness claimed her.  The light disappeared from the sky.  An empty car was left behind and Destiny was gone….

 

CHAPTER ONE

THE LARGE MAN WALKED into the ship Control Room.  He was a Destroyer, one of many.  They were a group of soldiers brought together by the Council.  His team was one of three.  There were only Eleven Destroyers under his command.  They were the smallest group but the most effective.

Zeuz sat down in the chair and read the information on the computer.  There was nothing from the other Destroyers about a Phant nest or any attacks from the Veron.  Zeuz ran a hand over his face.  The Phant were nasty, vicious creatures and they had been spreading like a disease across the galaxy with the help from the Veron for the past two years.  He hated the Veron as much as he hated the Phant.

Their home planet Ulzan had been attacked and many had died.  His mate and offspring had been slaughtered.  Zeuz blinked trying to rid himself of the memory of finding Aprii with her stomach ripped open.  The child had been torn from her body.  It had been their first.

He hadn't been the only one to lose loved ones in the attack.  Every member of the Destroyers had lost family and friends.  Every Destroyer had pledged to rid the worlds of these menus or die trying.

"Is there any news?"  Maccar asked coming up beside him.

Zeuz looked at his childhood friend.  He shook his head.  "No."

"It's been days, where could that ship have gone?"  Maccar asked.

"I don't know."  The blonde headed warrior replied.  He hit a couple of buttons to bring up the solar system map.  "We caught sight of them here.  What they were doing that close to the Ninth System is beyond me."

Zeuz followed the Phant ships progress with his finger.

"The only planet with a breathable atmosphere would be this planet."  He brought the planet on screen with a touch. 

"It's called Blizack."  They both said at the same time.

"Do you want to continue following their plasma trail or set coordinates and go straight there?"  Maccar asked in wonderment.

"Let's set coordinates for the planet.  I have a feeling the Phant ship is trying to distract us from the real destination."

Maccar walked up to the control panel and programmed the computer.  Pressing the alarm button to alert the rest of the Destroyers, it wasn't long before the others joined them. 

"There's been a change in plans.  We are going to Blizack."  Zeuz informed them. 

"How long before we arrive?"  A Destroyer asked.

"We arrive in three days."  He replied.

"Do you think there might be a nest?"  Another soldier asked.

"It could be possible, we should expect anything.  The planet isn't supposed to be inhabited. If there is a nest the surface scan should pick it up."

The soldiers left.  Zeuz and Maccar looked at one another.  They walked over to the map.  Learning everything they possibly could about the planet.
