A thousand years in the future, wars and portal failures disturb the fringes of the galaxy. On Terra, twenty-two year old Violet Hunter seems an ordinary student of the Space Academy, who dreams of exploring unknown planets. She applies to serve as the pawn of one of the twelve Grand Masters, although her hidden talent makes her ineligible. Violet has defied the prohibition against psychics for half her life. Why should she stop now? When she meets the Grand Master, or rather his griffin avatar, she realizes the danger. He must never learn her secret. He orders her on missions to exotic planets where she gains powers and finds strange allies. In secret, Violet seeks the truth about the mysterious Grand Masters. Who or what are they? Do they threaten or benefit civilization? And, what is the connection to her father’s death twenty years ago? While searching for answers, she plunges into a world of intrigues and explosive conflicts, while the galaxy flies toward chaos.
Drink tea with the White Mother on Avalon, fly with the dragon lords of Sythos, while Violet hunts for the evil conspirators in Book 1 of the Grand Masters Trilogy.
Interview with the Pawn, Violet Hunter
Question: Tell us a bit about yourself, Violet.
Answer: I’m twenty two years old. I’ve earned master’s degrees in xenobiology and geomorphology from the Space Academy, and I have certificates for proficiency in single combat and target shooting. It’s all in the public records! Off the record, I’m an empath, trained in secret.
Question: Why do you wear a steel necklace with two sapphires?
Answer: I have a pawn’s collar to show that I serve one of the twelve Grand Masters. I found the sapphires on my first mission. My Grand Master watches through them on my missions.
Question: Do tell us about your mysterious Grand Master?
Answer: Oh, he’s obnoxious. He won’t tell me his name and he likes to shove his psi power at me. But, I’m going to fix him!
Question: What does he look like?
Answer: I’ve no idea! He has a griffin avatar with flashy blue eyes. For all I know, he might be an alien or a robot.
Question: What is your goal in life?
Answer: My lifelong dream is to explore planets and meet weird aliens. And now, I’m determined to discover the truth about the Grand Masters. Mother Tingu believes some of them want to destroy civilization.
