Dark Nest

(The first book in the Dark Nest series)
A Novella by

While Leanna Renee Hieber is known more for her Gothic Victorian Fantasy novels, this futuristic tale marked Hieber's first foray into published fiction via a small boutique publisher in 2008 and won the 2009 Prism Award for Best Fantasy Romance Novella. The Dark Nest saga has since expanded into several Chronicles.

Chief Counsel Ariadne Corinth has just found out her long-time lover, the powerfully gifted Chief Counsel Kristov Haydn, has died. Newly evolved psychically gifted humans have been sent by the Homeworld on a space mission aboard two distinct "Nests". Relationships between the Light Nest and the Dark Nest have faltered and Ariadne is sure there's something insidious behind it. In a matter of hours, Ariadne must find out what really happened to Kristov, unite her people to discover vast new powers the Homeworld denied them, or else submit to genocide.

"Here's a fresh new voice on the scene. This romance fantasy novella hits all the right notes. Leanna has created a world that is so descriptive it will dance before your eyes. Set in the future, newly evolved psychically gifted humans are sent by the Homeworld to charter new territory. But as they discover betrayal, they also realize their true potential. I say pick this one up." - Maria of on Dark Nest

"The best thing about sci-fi is the exploration of all the different worlds invented by imaginative writers. Leanna Renee Heiber is imaginative. Even though the book is only novella length, the society she created was interesting, the plot feasible, and the imagery clear. I hope she works more with this story, because I want to see what happens when the tables turn." - Joysann for Publisher's Weekly's "Beyond Her Book" on Dark Nest
