THE CHRONICLES OF KASSOUK, a new kind of Sci-Fi with sizzling romance

Author Vijaya Schartz likes to mix genres, and her latest series, The Chronicles of Kassouk, pits a medieval Human society against highly advanced galactic races.  Fighting with the large felines they also keep as pets, the people of Kassouk face impossible odds, but the courage and ingenuity of Human heroes and kick-butt heroines goes a long way to win the day, while the romantic thread is enhanced by high stakes.

Book One, WHITE TIGER, won many awards, including two for the cover alone.

On the frozen plains of Kassouk, where a few aliens rule as deities on a medieval Human world, Tora — a Human warrior trained by tigers — seeks her father’s murderer. But what she finds at the point of her sword confuses her. How dare Dragomir, the handsome Mutant, question her bloodline and her loyalties? And could a new enemy control the savage hordes of the fringe?

“…an exceptional tale that belongs in a place of honor on keeper shelves everywhere.”
Johnna Flores – Coffee Time Romance – 5-cups rating

“…this is one futuristic that you do not want to miss!”

Book Two, RED LEOPARD, is coming out April 1, 2010

In charge of the fortress of Kassouk in the King’s absence, what is Terek to do when a Goddian spacecraft lands in his medieval backyard, and the striking woman leading the galactic party insists on colonization?

Galya, the Goddian Princess commanding the geological vessel, is bent on finding a crystal with unusual hyperconductor properties. And the futile resistance of the local population isn’t going to stop her. Not even that defiant tribal chief nicknamed Red Leopard, like the infernal feline that follows him everywhere.

Terek and his band of swordsmen and felines must defend their people’s freedom, no matter the cost. But with this unexpected arrival, an old prophecy surfaces, taking new meaning and carrying a new threat…

When political intrigues, greed, murder and betrayal tip the scales, whom can Galya really trust? Her fellow Goddians? the Mutants bred to serve her race? or her primitive Human enemy?
