VIRTUAL BOOK TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - The Ryo Myths by Perrin Pring

The Ryo Myths

by Perrin Pring


Book Blurb for Appointment at the Edge of Forever:

Filion felt safe in his role as a Dream Searcher. He was paid to venture into other’s dreams and exert influence over individuals whom he would never meet in the flesh.
But that was until he received The Summoning. Filion has been called to track down and protect Ryo, the last of the Chozen. She is the only hope of preventing a tide of evil driven by the Afortiori and the prospect of universal slavery if they aren’t stopped.

Time is ticking and Filion has no idea of how to find Ryo let alone how to protect her, yet destinies of planets rest in her hands. Enlisting the help of a rag-tag band of mercenaries, Filion will set out to search the wastes for Ryo. Together they will confront an evil whose power they just might have fatally underestimated.

Book Blurb for Tomorrow is Too Late:

I was a natural flier, I could take a punch, and I was smarter than most. Within five years I was a full-fledged pilot. On my last assignment, I was Master Pilot Eri Everfar, commanding pilot of a class B Federal war ship, the Seeker, and that’s where I met him, Drakier Lu…

Filion and his new friends have escaped Bok and are stuck in an asteroid field that isn’t supposed to exist. They’ve almost run out of fuel, their water supply is seriously depleted, all of their food has been destroyed, and the girl they’d just risked everything to save, Ryo, is dead.

Captain Eri’s former lover, Drakier Lu, has been promoted to Master Commander of the entire Federal Fleet, and his assignment is to find and capture the Dark Horse. Captain Eri has been identified as a Tiori, and she and her associates have just become the Federation’s most wanted. Things aren’t what they seem though, and the line between good and evil blurs as the players’ true motivations come to light.

Filion and the crew return, traveling the galaxy and dodging the Federation and the Tioris, all the while searching for a rogue planet that may or may not be harboring the one person who can save them all…

Book Blurb for The Degrees of Destiny:

When I was on Lamu, I inhaled an Afortiori's vileness. That blackness will be what allows me to win. I will use their own evil against them. Because of this I am tainted. I am but a degree different from what I fight, but in that degree, hangs the balance between universal slavery and Free Will.

Having fled from Lamu only moments before its destruction, Filion and his friends find themselves hiding in the shadows as the Federation and the Afortiori mobilize against their worst enemy, The Etulosba and its crew. The Etulosba, Ryo, plans for her final battle. She was engineered to fight for Free Will, but to win that war, she will have to become what no Chozen was meant to be - an Afortiori. Caught in Ryo's wake, Captain Eri is torn between leading her crew and confronting Drakier Lu, her former lover and torturer. Will she be able to overcome what he did to her, or will she fail, thereby becoming what he made her and letting down Ryo, her crew, and ultimately, the universe? Filion and the crew return in the final installment of The Ryo Myths. Join them as they begin a journey that not all of them will survive.

Excerpt – The Degrees of Destiny:

Initially, she’d thought the energy transfer had been temporary. Then she’d tortured Teeive instead of killing him, and now she realized the true cost of what she’d done. Some of his energy lived on inside of her. She hadn’t foreseen that. Inhaling Teeive’s energy had been like filling a suitcase with sand. She’d dumped out most of the sand, but grains of it remained, and they were expanding. She could feel the cold, calculating, psychopathic tendrils of Afortiori vile spreading and threatening to overtake her body. It wasn’t a battle she was sure she could win, but it might be what won her the war.

“I held that evil inside of me,” Ryo continued. “It powered me. I became high on its force. Then it left but not all of it. Some of it still lives within me.” She stood and faced Wiq. “I cannot fight this war without it.” She stood and faced Wiq. “I cannot fight this war without it. That blackness will be what allows me to win. I will use their own evil against them. Because of this I am tainted. I am but a degree different from what I fight, but in that degree, hangs the balance between universal slavery and Free Will. You and I, we have fought over Free Will, we have fought for Free Will, but we have never had Free Will. Captain Eri must exercise her Free Will because to me, she is everything that those words mean. If she does that, I can stay on the side of the right. I can fight this blackness and use it to save her. If she denies it though, or if she dies…”

Ryo looked at her hands. They flashed and became translucent. Wiq could see Ryo’s veins. As Wiq watched, a shadow spread through Ryo’s blood, darkening it to black.

“This vileness inside of me is not static. It pushes. It grows. I fight it, but I’m fighting on all fronts. She is my hope. She is my faith. She is what keeps this blackness at bay. She must not fail, or we all die.”

Character interview with 

Eri Everfar and Reddrick Canner

Interviewer: Hi, Today I’m here with Eri Everfar, Captain of the Dark Horse, and Reddrick Canner, Eri’s right hand man. Thank you two for being here today.

Captain Eri: Thank you for having us.

Red: Sure.

Interviewer: So to start, Eri, you own and operate the Dark Horse which is a transport ship, yes? You and your crew move things from planet to planet.

Captain Eri: That’s correct. We move most anything, but we have a soft spot for those who need a little extra help but can’t usually pay for it.

Interviewer: What does that mean?

Captain Eri: We aren’t cut throat business people. We see more than the net gross. We’d like to positively affect the overall outcome, even if it means not getting paid as much as we’d like.

Interviewer: Wow. That’s very altruistic of you. Red, you must have a heart of gold to have signed on to Captain Eri’s ship, knowing that making money wasn’t the priority.

Red: Ahhh, I think you’ve got it wrong. Money is most certainly my priority. I just go along with the Cap’n because she gets it right more than she gets it wrong, that is of course as long as she isn’t picking up strays.

Interviewer: Strays?

Red: Yeah, a while back she picked up this Dream Searcher. He…

Captain Eri: Red, you got a girlfriend out of that deal, didn’t you?

Red: (pause) Well, yeah but…

Captain Eri: You probably shouldn’t end a sentence about the love of your life with a ‘but’.

Red: Fine.

Interviewer: Okay, I can feel a bit of tension there. How about we move onto the next question? Red, this is for you. What are your daily duties on the Dark Horse?

Red: Well, I mostly make sure everyone keeps in line. I’m the fighter on the ship. I manage the armory, and when it hits the fan, I’m the one with the cool head.

Interviewer: Is the transport business really that dangerous? That you need weapons?

Red: Look, lady, walking down the street is dangerous. Sailing through the inky black of space in nothin’ but a tin can with goods that people would be willing to cut your throat for is a bit more challenging than your morning commute.

Captain Eri: Not everyone plays by the rules out there. You get out of Federation controlled space, onto some of the less progressive planets and there are varying definitions of propriety. Coming armed is not only prudent, it’s necessary.

Interviewer: I see. Uh, I’d like to go back to something Mr. Canner said, you said you were the fighter on the ship. My understanding is that you have another crew member, a nanotechnology based being by the name of Wiq, who used to be a super soldier. How do your skills match up compared to hers, Mr. Canner?

Captain Eri: (Laughs)

Red: Look. I’m not going to talk about the mechanical lady. You asked me here. I’m telling you I’m the Dark Horse’s lead fighter. Wiq’s certainly good to have on your side in a fight, but…

Captain Eri: Both Wiq and Red are equally invaluable on my crew. Red’s got the advantage of being human, so he’s able to pick up things like body language and missed beats that are foreign to Wiq. That said, Wiq’s fighting skills are unlike anyones I’ve ever seen.

Red: But mine are good as well.

Captain Eri: Yes Red, but you’re not part machine.

Red: That’s right. I’m 100% man.

Interviewer: (Laughs) Okay. Captain, this one’s for you. You used to be a pilot in the Federal Military. Did that experience help you succeed in your current profession.

Red: (Glances at Captain Eri)

Captain Eri: Of course it did. Everything I got from the military better prepared me to be the person I am today, both personally and professionally.

Interviewer: So it was a positive experience then?

Captain Eri: I never said that.

Interviewer: Oh, well I just…

Red: You have another question for me?

Interviewer: Uh... (shuffles some papers) Red, rumors in space are that you’re dating superstar tsubasa player, Rizea Ans. Care to confirm or deny this?

Red: Oh we’re dating, and we’re doing a lot of other things too.

Interviewer: (Laughs) Well, I won’t pry too much.

Red: Just ask. I’ll tell you.

Captain Eri: Red, no.

Red: (Reddens) Fine.

Interviewer: (Laughs again) Well, thanks you guys for being here today. One last question, Captain, what’s next?

Captain Eri: The same thing that’s always next, exploring the space just beyond the horizon.
