On top of Cle Curbo’s 1st Place win in Sci-Fi last year (2021), his next Sci-Fi book is a fantastic thriller, Quest for Sylvane. If you’re looking for action, this one has it. Here’s more about it, the back cover blurb.
To prevent alien rule on Earth, Sylvane Langtree enlists Bert Bostin, an innocent and naive Earthman. Speeding to warn Watchers Council of Earth’s takeover, Sylvane is abducted by Farian, who insists she is the missing third goddess of his planet, Esthar. The ultra-secretive Rieceh grab Sylvane and whisk her to distant beta-Goltim to lure Farian. Evading Rieceh agents on beta-Goltim, Sylvane flees, only to fall into a trap set by Farian, who sends her to sleep in an ancient castle on Esthar until Queen Iiana grows in power. Bert rescues Sylvane but is caught by the Hag. As Sylvane transforms into goddess, she realizes that only her power can save the Earth.
