What do you do when the world’s greatest power has no conscience?

Two, not of blood, but joined in blood, may conquer only as a selfless act of love.

-from The Prophecy of the Dancers of Silence

The illustrated dystopian science fiction epic fantasy BIRTH RIGHT TRILOGY depicts the first battles of a brutal war between humans, cyborgs, robots, and
genetically enhanced beings. In the first book, BIRTH RIGHT: GALAK’S RISING,
you are introduced to the Valki and Galak.

At the onset of a technological war that could destroy their race and the
technology that made them superior, the genetically enhanced Valki traveled
more than a century into the future.

In this new civilization, Galak, a cruel cyborg obsessed with creating his own
race of superior beings, induces the remaining human feudal and native tribes
to war against one another. To limit the Valki population, births are
restricted to one per woman, unless they are twins. Galak demands that Valki
teen twins compete for a Birthright, the right to have children—or be

The courage of two young Valki women to resist Galak's law pits princes, kings, and
mighty warriors against a merciless and powerful foe.

To save humanity, the girls, named only 99 and 100, and their allies must resist
an opponent who has the field and technological advantages. Only those willing
to sacrifice everything can defeat their enemies.

The BIRTH RIGHT TRILOGY explores the ethical implications of technology with
adventure, romance, humor, and terror.

Below, the girl kicks and screams, then faints.

The G warriors shrug, and then pick her up and carry her inside the wooden

From their room, the girls look on, waiting for something to happen, but nothing
does. The only movement below them is the dust sweeping across the dirt road.

99 and 100 look at one another, not believing what they have seen. Then, the girls
smell the familiar scent of Lavora, a rare rose and lavender perfume, and turn
to face their grandmother, Crystal.

Crystal’s forehead is fraught with concern. “Girls, what have you been doing?”

The two 14-year old girls cling to Crystal. 99, the most outspoken, speaks.
“Grandma, a girl was arrested and taken inside the Dall Building. She was our

“Who took her?” Crystal smooths the simple cotton skirt over her slim frame. She
knows before she asks, though, that it has to do with Galak. Everything evil
does. Why did Galak have to follow them here?

100 answers now. “The G Warriors. Were they kidnapping her?” Crystal pulls the
girls closer. She hasn’t felt this frightened since she left Darissa da Vinci
in 2071. “We’re not to interfere with them, dears. They work under Galak’s

“Who is Galak?” 99 asks as she brushes a long wisp of dark hair away from her face.
If he’s important, she ought to know.

Crystal looks from 99 to 100, uncertain what their mother, Sila, would have her say.
