Empire cover only (398 x 600)The Empire

All Adrian Stannis wanted was a quiet corner of the galaxy where he could work on his beloved scientific experiments, but unfortunately, he was born into a world at war, where his people are struggling for survival against a vastly superior alien invasion force and he is a genius who was trained for the very thing he hates, the creation of deadly weapons.

Not to mention, he appears to have been genetically mated to a telepath by his government and he doesn’t find her…uninteresting. In fact, she appears quite intelligent.

So what will happen to this solitary man when his peace is shattered in every way possible and there is nowhere left to run?

Brock’s Review

Elizabeth Lang crafts a spellbinding tale of evil and deceit in Empire, a science fiction novel about a world at war and the man that stands between the women he loves and annihilation he can create.

Lt. Adrian Stannis is a largely unfeeling genius who is trained in the creation of advanced weaponry. It weighs heavily on him as he faces not only the threat of an alien force, but the machinations of the uncaring Empire. His only hope is with a former conman and thief turned personal assistant, Bryce, and psychic, Kali.

Perhaps the best part of this book is the way Stannis changes from beginning to end and how he learns to depend on and trust his friends. It’s an action-packed thrill ride that has an amazing rhythm, and, before you know it,  you’ve reached the end.

Don’t let the science fiction motif fool you, this is an incredibly well-crafted tale that will have you begging for more.

The Rebels

Adrian, Kali and Adrian’s personal assistant, Bryce are finally free of the oppressive Empire. They hide on a planet called, Orasis, a tech-4 world on the Outer Rim whose only usefulness is a low-grade source of Tri-Iridium ore. Not the kind of place to find the most advanced weapons scientist in the galaxy. Things go well, relatively, and Adrian and Kali finally have time to develop the relationship they didn’t think possible. Adrian and Bryce even start up their own fix-it business.

Then a stranger arrives on the planet.

Brock’s Review

In the second book of the Empire series, The Rebels, Elizabeth Lang once again unravels a thrilling story of a man trying to escape his fate and the friends that help him.

Lt. Adrian Stannis is a peace-loving man forced to create devastating weapons for the Empire in a war against an alien race. Stannis finally escapes the Empire, but not without a cost. There is a bounty on his head and everyone is out to cash in. The only help he has is beautiful psychic, Kali, and his colorful personal assistant with a checkered past, Bryce. They have settled on a faraway planet and everything seems to be going fine until a stranger arrives and once again plunges their lives into chaos.

If the first book was a fast-paced jewel, then this follows suit and then some. It’s filled with amazing futuristic action as you learn about the nuances of the characters, especially Kali and Adrian. Lang’s use of description is spot on, and you feel like you’re in this futuristic world gone mad.

About the author:

Elizabeth Lang is first and foremost, a geek with the obligatory love of science fiction and fantasy. She spent most of her life in the computer industry designing computer systems for world domination the mundane industry of life insurance, which is surprisingly, not as exciting as it sounds.

Now she creates enchanted worlds of magic, explores the human condition in the light of future technology and civilizations, and dreams about world domination. Or at least, some of her characters do.

Her first book, The Empire was fortunate enough to be a finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards and she has never looked back.
