Heart of the Valkyrie
by Tom Fallwell
In a future among the stars, the origins of mankind have all but faded into the past. Nathan and his crew aboard the Valkyrie enjoy the freedom of the outer systems, away from the despotic rule of the Quanios Empire. But when they suddenly find themselves saddled with an equally extraordinary teenage girl, Sybille, who is now being sought by the Empire, things take a very unexpected turn.
