Reading by bestselling author Kai Meyer from his three-part space opera “Die Krone der Sterne”
(The Crown of the Stars)
From the content:
“A dramatic space adventure in widescreen format full of action and magic.”
The galactic kingdom of Tiamande is ruled by the Almighty God Empress and her Order of Witches. Her girls are regularly fed as brides from distant planets. Nobody knows what happens to them.
When the young aristocrat Iniza is chosen, she is to be brought to the throne world aboard a space cathedral. Her secret lover Glanis, the disillusioned bounty hunter Kranit and the all-rounder Shara Bitterstern do everything to thwart the witches’ plan. In the laser fire of massive spaceships, they fight for their future – and against a cosmic threat that outdoes even the god empress’s star magic.”
“Pulls out all the stops of the classic Space Opera and reminds us of modern masters like Ian M. Bank.” – Das Science Fiction Jahr
After the reading (on Saturday 8 June 2019) there will be a Q&A and at the book table Kai Meyer’s novels can be bought and signed on this day.
