The Prize by Debra Doggett

Science Fiction Romance

How many times have you heard “It is not the destination, it is the journey”. You know the destination when you start The Prize. It is the journey that grabs your attention. Debra Doggett has written a beautifully paced book with the right amount of tension between Cardis and Stellan . Stellan is a native of a backward planet where the spaceship Cardis is traveling on crashes. Using a tradition from Cardis's planet Stellan has three days to convince her take him as her lifetime mate. If he fails he is killed or sold into slavery. The premise is not new but the author gives it fresh new life. Both characters have issues that keep their journey interesting. I saw one place where I wondered when the characters changed locations and one where the time line did not seem correct. These were minor flaws that did not change how I felt about the book. I hated for the book to end and I hope this is just the first book Debra Dogget publishes. The book is published by Wild Rose Press and is available in hard cover and as an e-book. You can purchase this at Fictionwise, Amazon, and Wild Rose Press.
