Crossover: A Cassandra Kresnov Novel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first novel in a new series follows the adventures of Cassandra, an artificial person who experiences a moral awakening and must forge new friendships with old enemies, while attempting to confront the most disturbing and deadly realities of her own existence.

Review:

"Set in the far future, Australian author Shepherd's energetic debut introduces Cassandra Kresnov, an experimental killer android-with-a-heart who has defected from her League Dark Star special ops assignment. Graced with a yen for human art almost as insatiable as her libido, Kresnov first tries to melt anonymously into Tanusha, the sybaritic capital of Callay, a planet of the League's galactic archenemy, the Federation. But Cassandra can't leave her martial past behind when she's caught up in a heroic struggle to protect the Callayan president from assassination by Federal forces. Shepherd's intriguing heroine and strong female characters bode well for this projected series. Lacing Cassandra's search for identity and acceptance with plenty of hand-to-hand combat and racy sexual exploits, Shepherd also convincingly presents vividly realized ethical dilemmas: what happens to soldiers when the war is over? can a culture that opposes the artificial manufacture of life accept its creations? Shephard grapples with some genuinely thought-provoking questions on the nature of humanity. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
