Ava has always been different. Born with strong
telepathic abilities, she lives a very isolated life until she is offered a job
with an obscure network that aids powerful Immortal Guardians in their quest to
protect humanity from the psychotic vampires who prey upon them. Suddenly, she
doesn't feel so different. For the first time in her life, Ava has found a
place where she belongs. She's happy. Life is good. And when her employers
invite her to join a group of other gifted ones and a handful of Immortal
Guardians on a journey to another planet, it becomes absolutely fantastic.
In no time at all, she is speeding across the galaxy aboard a Lasaran warship manned by two amazing alien races. It's the dream of a lifetime... until a vicious attack by a mutual enemy of Lasara and Earth lands her alone in an escape pod with no habitable planet in sight and only one ship within range: one that carries the enemy who wants to know why the bioengineered virus they released on Earth long ago didn't exterminate humanity and leave the planet ripe for their claiming.
Jak'ri doesn't know how long he has been a prisoner aboard the Cebaun, but he fears the enemy's twisted experiments will soon lead them to a virus that will eradicate the Purveli people. Despair grips him until a female from Earth is taken captive and reaches out to him telepathically. The gift that Ava said caused her such misery in the past soon becomes his salvation as the two of them form a fast friendship. Determined to distract each other from the horrors of their existence, they immerse themselves in telepathic communion during the day, then seek solace and adventure together in shared dreams. As their friendship deepens into love, the two hatch a daring plot to escape their captors. But the enemy will not let them go without a fight.
Can Ava and Jak'ri stand against so many and emerge victorious?
Aldebarian Alliance Series:
Fellow readers and listeners, I had the chance to get a little Nerdy as I ask the lovely Dianne Duvall a few questions about her upcoming release The Purveli, her love of Scifi, and the potential of future book tour signings! Read on to see just what she had to say!
Q&A with Dianne Duvall
Hi, Melissa! I’m so excited to be here. Thanks so much for helping me celebrate the release of THE PURVELI!
I am so ecstatic to have you here today! Let's Dive in, get it?- because the character is- *no spoilers*
anyway... Let's Dive right in!!!
1: When thinking of scenarios for your characters to
face, does it ever seem as if your hands can't keep up with how fast your mind
plays through a scene? Like the characters are screaming at you to get it just
For me, it’s more like the characters won’t let me go to sleep because they want me to hurry and write the scene that just came to me. RIGHT THEN. New scenes always seem to come to me when I’m trying to fall asleep. I even started keeping my iPad pro next to the bed so I could jot them down without going to my office… and so the characters will stop saying, “Oh come on! You can’t sleep now! You have to write this down!” LOL
2: Sci-fi romance has expanded in most recent years.
Do you see yourself reading more of it now that you write the genre?
do. The past two years have been particularly stressful ones, so I’ve needed
more of an escape than usual. And as Cliff in my Immortal Guardians series once
said, you can’t get more of an escape than by leaving the planet. I LOVE sci-fi
movies, but Hollywood just doesn’t make enough of them. I also like to read
whatever genre I’m currently writing in to keep me in that mindset, so I’m
thrilled with the way the sci-fi romance genre has taken off. My TBR pile is
growing by leaps and bounds.
3: So many of us are excited to literally dive into this book and know more of these characters. What gave you the idea to write about aliens with gills?
love to swim and would adore being able to remain underwater for longer lengths
of time. I also thought being able to easily shift from using lungs to extract
oxygen from air while on land to using gills to extract oxygen from water while
swimming would be awesome. It’s what allows Purvelis to enjoy the best of both
4: OK, a lot of us are dying to know; will we get to meet and connect with the illustrious Dianne Duvall at any future book signings/ author events in 2022/23? Las Vegas, Grapevine TX, Philadelphia, and so many others are in the works!
I would love to attend some of the upcoming book signings and reader/author events. It would be so much fun to meet you—and the many reader and writer friends I’ve made online—in person. Though I can’t attend any events in 2022, I’m hoping I’ll be able to in 2023. 😀
WOW! I do not know about you- readers and listeners, That was pretty awesome to get a special insight into the life of one of our favorite authors- and the mention of future BOOK SIGNINGS!😍 I'm there!
Ms. Duvall, thank you so much for joining us today here at Nerdynovelreviews, and much sucess to this no-doubt SMASHING hit!
