Science Fiction Series Explores How Women Survive War

How do women on the war-torn savannah survive with few resources, dependent children, and no voice in the public square? Stella Atriumís latest book StrikeStone (published through iUniverse) presents a cohort of women who succeed by their own wits and using the tools at hand.

Science Fiction Series Explores How Women Survive War
Chicago, IL, July 09, 2013 --( Stella Atrium’s third book in the Dolvia Saga, StrikeStone, is now available in paperback and as an e-book on The story follows the return to Dolvia’s savannah of Brianna Miller as she struggles to protect the tribes during a conflict with the Borabean who seek to capture the new mineral silicide.

Rabid Readers Reviews said, “One need not read the first two novels to appreciate the beauty and elegance of Atrium’s new world in StrikeStone, but reading the novel certainly made this reader want to pick up the previous two.”

Regarding this middle book in the series, Atrium explained, “The reader will greet friends from the previous two books who are making hard choices for protesting the oppressive rule of Rabbenu Ely. In fact, the story opens with the immolation of Kyle Rula, so shocking that it makes the evening news in Paris, France on this side of the wormhole.”

As for appealing to a target audience, she added, “Sci-fi stories about women, actually girls, tend to focus on how she acts like a man, or has powers beyond her age or physical strength. In truth, women operate in groups supporting each other, sometimes without salary or encouragement. I want the reader to find characters she can relate to who solve problems like her own problems, but in a sci-fi setting.”

StrikeStone is now available in paperback ($20.95) through and major distributors. The e-book version ($6.99) is also available through online bookstores.
