Shining Star

By Stephan Michael Loy

Sci-Fi | Paperback, Hardback, eBook


We killed Earth. Thousands of years later, the survivors, having fled their dead planet in great generation ships, eke out a tenuous existence among the local group of stars. This could have been the end for the last dregs of humanity, but for the rise of a dictatorial church that draws humankind under its wing and flogs it to prosperity. Now, Miranda St. Billiart, a soldier for the Community of God, seeks to escape the power that made her in the first place. With her sister Ilyanya, she uncovers the corruption that made the Church possible. The two of them fight to expose the great lie, to redress the evils heaped upon their people, and to discover within the wreckage of their universe who they are and why they matter. SHINING STAR is that rarest of stories, space fantasy done with deadly serious intent. On one level, this is an ode to Star Wars. On another, it is Star Wars if done by Christopher Nolan. Whatever it is, SHINING STAR delivers action, pathos, cataclysmic space battles, armored space marines, and girls with swords. What else could you want?
