J. S. Frankel's Randor's Moon -- A Review
Complex intergalactic conflict? Political intrigue? Deception and betrayal? If these things are your cup of tea, then Randor’s Moon is a must-read for you!
Randor, a young scientist – one of the last living scientists among his people – is tasked with the impossible: finding a cure to a virus found in a race of creatures he’s never met until that afternoon. And if he doesn’t? No big deal. The creatures of Falanar will just keep bombing his planet into extinction.
With the fate of his people hanging in the balance, Randor journeys with Minnara, the Crown Princess of this warring nation, to Falanar in order to run his tests and apply a cure, but things go terribly wrong when their navigation system forces their spacecraft into the tail of a passing comet. This freak accident (or was it an accident?) destroys their craft, marooning them on a moon inhabited by fearsome and horrific creatures.
If Randor and Minnara wish to survive, they will have to find some way to put aside their grievances and work together. Things only get increasingly complicated, however, when the sentient inhabitants of the planet become hostile, Minnara starts to show symptoms of the virus, and help is slow to arrive. If Randor’s wits and Minnara’s strength fail, it’s only a matter of time before they succumb to the terrors of this frightening world, and with their deaths will come the extinction of both of their peoples.
J. S. Frankel keeps you on your toes and guessing all the way to the end of this Young Adult Sci-Fi tale of self-resilience and survival!

I am accepting submissions for reviews at this time. I am primarily interested in thrillers, suspense, magical realism, dystopians, and light sci-fi. I have a taste for the grim and love novels that make you think. Leave me haunted but hopeful.
