Read full description of the books:



The second installment of Atrium’s Dolvia Saga is a character-driven sci-fi tale that explores profound—and timely—themes of sexual oppression, environmentalism and cultural intolerance.

Atrium’s intricate novel ranges widely in theme—gender, politics, existential philosophy, mysticism, etc. Set primarily on the planet of Dolvia—where the females of the indigenous, frequently warring tribes of the savannah maintain few rights and are forced to wear burkas—the storyline revolves, at least initially, around Dr. Edna Edwina Greensboro, a bush-clinic doctor whose courage, compassion and vision have begun to change some of the insular ways of thinking.

Getting married to Lt. Mike Shaw, an off-world military man, and keeping two female gualareps—oversized and sentient iguana-esque reptiles—increases her status. But when she witnesses a “mixed blood” girl being brutally abused, she realizes that she’s working against centuries of oppression reinforced by cultural mores, folklore, myth and cruel men dead set on guarding the status quo. After all, the victims “are only women.” The commentary on gender politics benefits from a foreign setting; it’s an exercise in considering discrimination without finger-pointing. But that’s only one aspect of this multifaceted story—as Greensboro fights to save lives and educate the tribespeople, nefarious individuals
and companies seek to profit from the chaos.

Atrium’s saga continues with another entertaining and powerful read, reminiscent of Octavia E. Butler and Margaret Atwood.

An allegorical, emotionally intimate narrative for sci-fi fans, with broad themes that could appeal to a mainstream
audience, too.

Read information about the author

Ebook HeartStone: Book II of the Dolvia Saga read Online! Stella Atrium is author of SufferStone (launch 1/12) HeartStone (launch 6/12), and StrikeStone (launch 7/13), three fantasy books of the Dolvia Saga.

"Many fantasy stories today are set in Medieval times with castles and horses and magic and princesses needing rescue. Nobody asks, 'How did these humanoids get here?' or 'Why are there so many races of people?'

So I wrote a fantasy series with several races (no elves or dwarfs or vampires), except I placed events in today’s world with helicopters instead of horses, and peace-keeping soldiers instead of warriors, and the internet instead of ravens.

Events take place on another planet discovered by a mining interest from Earth led by the Chinese. Other adventurers are from America, France and Australia. They work for a consortium of inhabited planets where people have government, repression, murder for hire, and all the ills of competition in the marketplace.

If you’re tired of castle stories with endless battlefield scenes, try a planet story that reflects our world and the struggles of women living under the burka. Actions that become legend, leading by example, taking the difficult route – all these may be inspirational to young women today who are allowed few privileges at home or at school." -- Stella Atrium

This book is awesome!

GRACIE

Interesting read for true fans

HARRY

Strongly recommend

AMY

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.
