Star’s Tempest by H.C.H. Ritz

 

Marooned on a hostile planet, Miranda and her father, Prospero, so far have kept twenty-eight souls alive. But the colony is failing, and her father returned from the dark jungles changed, and mad, and with inexplicable power over the planet’s alien life. Can she end his vicious tyranny before the lights go out? This is a sci-fi retelling of Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

Note: Star’s Tempest contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

No title

By Wayne Basta, author of Seraph's Gambit

Nov 26, 2018: Disclaimer: Star’s Tempest is published on the same site as some of my own work.

Star’s Tempest is a sci-fi retelling of Shakespeare’s Tempest. It makes no effort to hide this, as some stories do. Some authors will take an old classic, like Shakespeare, and write something based entirely on that and think they are clever for it. HCH Ritz isn’t trying to be clever, she’s just telling a compelling story and used a classic as a starting point.
