Paradise Protocol by Anna Zogg
The Paradise Protocol by Anna Zogg is a science fiction novel with a strong romantic theme. There is also an element of suspense. While I liked this book I would have liked a stronger plot. There is plenty of action, many strange creatures, and the vegetation is certainly not terrestrial. I will be reading the second novel to see if some of my questions are answered.
From Anna Zogg's webpage:
THE PARADISE PROTOCOL
Submit to the director...
or forfeit your life!
Alone on a primitive planet light-years from Earth, bio-scientist Aric Lindquist believes she has been abandoned by SARC, the sponsor of her research assignment. In the five months since her assistant disappeared, she has struggled to survive Empusa III’s beautiful but hostile environment. Is SARC punishing her because she accused them of breaking protocol in not safeguarding the indigenous humanoids? After a new assistant finally arrives, Aric’s suspicions escalate.
When Sean Reese agreed to this mission, he expected to find a dangerous and possibly demented woman. Carrying out his orders would have been easy. But Aric is unlike anything he expected. Sean might find a way to save her life if she submits to the powerful director of SARC.
If she won’t, the director will use any means to silence them both...including murder.
About Anna from her web page:
What do you get when you cross an army brat, a police record, and an opera singer? Anna, of course! She’s been surrounded by the military (father, three siblings, husband and son), she was an exchange student in Denmark (where police records are mandatory) and she trained as a vocal major in college. With such a diverse background, she couldn’t help but become a writer.
After traveling the globe, she and her husband settled in Utah--a place they once swore they’d never live. Now they love it. With the towering mountains, nearby Great Salt Lake, high desert temperatures--she couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
