“As soon as she stopped, a growl behind her reminded her that she was not alone.”Anne Winchell, The Moon of Lycca
Winchell’s novella, The Moon of Lycca, is a fast-moving space saga. Mei is attempting to rescue two colonists when her glider crashes in a remote area of a dangerous planet. Armed with a limited supply of ammo, the small-framed peacekeeper must find a way to survive the perils she encounters in the darkness.
Winchell packs a lot of action and meaning into this 28-page novella. With her determination, resourcefulness, and adaptability, Mei pulls the reader in and quickly demonstrates why she shouldn’t be underestimated. I appreciated the novella’s message about women’s empowerment.
I was already a fan of Winchell’s writing and this novella left me wanting to read more of her works.
The Moon of Lycca is available for purchase on Amazon.
