The Zygan Emprise Trilogy by Y.S. Pascal features three books -- Renegades, Redemption, and Rebirth -- in a great blend of science fiction, fantasy, and terrorist thriller. In the opening book of the trilogy, Shiloh sets out to find her older brother, a secret agent of the Zygan Federation who has mysteriously disappeared. Aided by her co-star, Spud, Shiloh flies into space, but what awaits them is a terrorist threat and these terrorists are determined to destroy the Zygan Federation and bring desolation to Earth. In Redemption, Shiloh Rush and Spud Escott use the Golden Fleece borrowed from an ancient prophet and travel to a desolate dimension to rescue her long-lost brother. But do they stand a chance in the face of powerful enemies and mounting odds, including demons, vampires, guerrillas, and Valkyries? Rebirth is a stunning conclusion in the trilogy and it raises the stakes even higher. The lives of the Zygans are under attack from vicious assassins and the Zygan Federation's king, the Omega Archon, is the ultimate target. Can they beat what stands against them — terrorists, kidnappers, and mysterious powers?
Y.S. Pascal is skilled at creating tension and building a conflict that is phenomenal. The lead characters, Shiloh and Spud, are professional actors, but they lead a double life. When off the camera, they are fighters, intrepid secret agents for a covert intergalactic federation. It is fun following these two characters as they face impossible odds in very perilous missions. The setting is terrific, taking readers across the galaxy, traveling with the characters across Andromeda and the Milky Way. A lot of research has accompanied this trilogy and the author weaves the elements of the research neatly into the narrative. The prose is crisp, character development impeccable, and the pacing fast. The Zygan Emprise Trilogy is packed with action, mystery, and suspense. The reader quickly learns to care about the characters and keeps on turning from chapter to chapter, concerned about them. The unpredictability in the plot makes this trilogy a thrill for fans of science fiction and fantasy.
