About the Book

A story formed as a single strand of thought on a warm autumn day in Mexico. Driving from Caborca to Puerto Penasco over bumpy roads, the jeep was loud, I couldn’t hear the radio or my husband talking. (It’s okay, he likes to talk and repeat himself, so it’s never a problem to catch up at a quieter time.) A what-if scenario incubated, molded into a story, and for a few weeks took several different shapes, most discarded, until put to paper.

I love television. One of my favs is Grimm, a cop show thinly veiled as a scary fairy tale. I wrote a paper a couple of years ago on our fascination for monsters combined with violence. We as Humans (at least most of us) cannot believe we would subject our fellow man to torture and horrendous crimes against each other. And so the fictional monsters were born out of our imaginations to brace our psyches against the true villains: the fiends, ogres, beasts, that appear in Human shape and live among us. The monsters that facilitated the recent attack in Paris attempting to terminate our way of life must not read books or they would know there is never an end. A chapter can be rewritten and there is always a possibility of a sequel.

Sorry, I regress. Brother 5 depicts the Human monsters that (not using who, because they are not part of humanity as I chose to believe) walk among us, justifying their inhumane actions. It also reflects the power of love, faith, kindness, and determination, which can change the course of evil.

Good old fashioned SYFI . Something you don't need a degree in astrophysics to follow. Just good brain candy to enjoy. I'll be following up with the other books in this series.
A compelling and unique scifi story. Definitely worth checking out, especially for the price

About the Author
Ardyce Years

Ardyce’s love for books was born to replace friends. Growing up in the southwest her parents moved from town to town. The local library supplied her with endless relationships, some she holds near and dear today. The Old Man and the Sea stays by her bedside, although their love affair is relatively new. When an auto accident as a teenager kept her immobile for three months, the doctor’s banishment to the living room couch began her obsession with movies and television. (BTW, next to smart phones, streaming is the best invention of modern times.) The first science fiction movie she can remember viewing is The Day the Earth Stood Still.

She found the movie poster in Cannes, of all places, in 2006 and insisted on carrying it on the plane on her return flight home. Artie lives in Phoenix with her husband, three kids, and a menagerie of four legged family members. She is known for a wicked, sometimes inappropriate, sense of humor. Her kids do not think she is funny at all.

Ardyce Years is the author of the Brother 5 series which includes two novels, Brother 5 and Dancing Above the Moon, as well as novelettes Prisoners of the Baroque and The Ice Prisoner.
