Back Cover:

General Albert McIntyre-Smythe (recently un-retired) was firmly of the opinion that whoever had said “the pen is mightier than the sword” had obviously never encountered high-powered energy weapons.

Being the General officer in charge of the Imperial Reserve on Deanna – a third-rate backwater Terran colony, as well as being the Chairperson of the Skegg’s Valley Dynamite Fishing Club – had placed him in a rather unique position – at the head of a few good men (he didn’t get the nick-name “Fucking Bullet Magnet” for nothing) on a field full of trouble – with no way out, because the enemy had already mined it.

Civil War is an ugly business, Smythe knew – one which could be compared to a family feud with blasters – and unless he did something to stop it soon, Deanna was going to be torn apart!

“Engela’s latest work is packed with humour, challenging ideas, and science-fiction on a grand scale. It transports readers to a truly original world, filled with bizarre and memorable characters. It tackles social issues while reading like a Terry Pratchett, with some western and sci-fi elements to boot.” – Matthew ‘Sand-Storm’ Fick.

“Engela’s eye for the quirky humor of even the darkest situations sets her writing apart from the masses. Her fiction combines oddball humor, in the tradition of writers like Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams, with the best of traditional science fiction.” –  Sarah Rutledge Fischer, Focus Mid-South Magazine.
