A forbidden love.
An impossible mission.
A planet where death lurks at every turn.
Sybil of Planet Valkyrie can't go home until she confronts the rulers of Planet Fury, where assassination is a popular pastime. The Furies demand that Sybil tap the powers of her familiar demons to find an answer that may not exist—or die trying.
Praise for Valkyrie on Planet Fury:
"A heady blend of science fiction and erotic fun, satire and mind-thrilling and chilling detail."
—Frannie Zellman, author of The Fatland Trilogy
"A thoroughly enjoyable read!"
—Karen J. Mossman, author of The Secret
"Weaves Greek and Norse mythology into an action-packed tale with visionary ideas, hilarious wit and sexy fun."
—Jaqueline Girdner, author of the Kate Jasper mysteries
An urgent mission.
A woman with a past.
A dangerous burden.
Sybil, from Planet Valkyrie, carries a risky amount of Gravitas, a top secret aphrodisiac, to trade at a conference on ending slavery in her sector of the galaxy. Attacked by an angry warrior from slave-holding Planet Roggr, Sybil falls through an unmarked portal to land on Earth. The Forbidden Zone. Rescue is impossible. Portals to Earth are sealed. Sybil needs to defend herself, protect her hazardous cargo, and find a way home—while dealing with a damaging overdose of Gravitas.
Praise for Gravitas: Valkyrie in the Forbidden Zone:
"Reading this Lynne Murray book is like being a kid in a candy shop. Sure, she can weave a thrilling story line, but she also makes you feel as if you can indulge your dreams and fantasies about living in a different, much more delightful world. Read the book. It is more fun than eating chocolate while sipping wine."
—Frannie Zellman, author of The FatLand Trilogy
"Murray hurls the reader into her story and her universe, with links to daily reality, which make it seem more possible. The strong-minded protagonist displays Murray's trademark flashes of wit. Well imagined and thought provoking!"
—Leslie Moïse, Ph.D., author of Judith and Love Is the Thread
"Escape to the outer reaches of space... and San Francisco... in this intriguing thrill ride of a tale that had me hooked from the first page. I was on the edge of my seat and reading on to see what would happen next. I truly did not want it to end, and am hoping there is a sequel that I can get my hands on as soon as it comes out!"
—Tracey L. Thompson, author of Fatropolis A Novel
My other novels are still available. All of them offer stories as an antidote to our culture's view that heroines only come in size zero packages. No matter what the genre, my heroines are large, in charge, and able to defeat bad guys, find love and win victories, just as women of all sizes and ages do in real life.
