Six months after Sah'Reena's arrival, a strange object crash lands on Earth. A device she's positive came from her home planet, Murrall. At the same time, NASA scientists discover a strange new body orbiting the sun exactly opposite of Earth. It's only when a Deathship appears close to the Johnson Space Center in Houston that she and Robin learn the truth: Murrall was caught up in the same anomaly as her space pod, and has been brought into this solar system.
Now her life is once again in jeopardy as her planet wants her back to fulfill the original death sentence placed upon her. But when Robin travels back to Murrall to present himself as her true mate, and to ask them to spare her life, they witness the horrible devastation caused when the planet was ripped from its galaxy.
Knowing it may be his only chance to save the woman he loves, Robin offers a possible solution to save both Sah'Reena and her dying world. But first, he has to prove to everyone that he and the woman he’s taken to wife are compatible by undergoing a proving ceremony.
However, regardless of the outcome, one man is determined to see the powerful Gifted dead, no matter what the cost.
Warning: Contains dangerous rock slides, paint balls, arrogant men in high positions of authority, alien food, see-through tents, skimpy uniforms, in-laws, and a transference of power that shocks both Robin and the woman he loves—a woman who may be the most dangerous creature in the universe.

Kenjji grew up in Detroit’s Rosedale Park neighborhood, went to Catholic school for eight years, and later attended University of Detroit Mercy and Western Michigan University, where he studied art.
Kenjji dropped his surname because of its connection to slavery and its consequent “unpretty history.”
He was first inspired to create comics after reading Brotherman, one of the first independent comic books featuring a Black superhero, which was published in the late ’80s and early ’90s.
“I decided it was time to reinstate books like Brotherman, which I found so influential and appealing, and the first thing I had to do was create a character that was just as cool as Brotherman,” he explains.
“I wanted to do a character with cornrows — that was the look. Around the time I was working this out, D’Angelo [noted for his cornrows] came out with his album Voodoo, which gave me the inspiration to start researching Voodoo as a background for this character.”
Hence the birth of his protagonist, who was named after a “super-suave friend” by the name of Jovan who lived on Carrington Street.
Kenjji is a strickler for detail, and wanted his book to paint an authentic picture of Voodoo. He extensively researched the history of the misunderstood practice, devouring books and studying under a Voodoo priestess who runs an informational Web site about the practice and history of Voodoo.
While you're battling snowdrifts in the Northeast, why not check out the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse podcast, airing this Saturday at 6pm EST!

And if that wasn't enough edutainment, actress and Renegade Nerd CEO, Claire Lanay joins us to discuss her company, growing female nerdom as well as diversity concerns present in pop culture. And perhaps throughout the respective interviews, we will address the latest "going ons" in geek business: the growing controversy centering around actor, Joseph Fiennes' upcoming portrayal of Michael Jackson in a UK comedy special; Marvel CEO, Ike Perlmutter donates 1M to Donald Trump's Veterans fundraiser; reviled hedge fund manager/pharma CEO, Martin Shkreli vs Ghostface Killah (huh?), Agent Carter's Pre-Loving vs VA romance with Dr. Jason Wilkes; the Justice League returns to Cartoon Network; Joseph Illidge's Mission piece on two Captain Americas (and two Hulks and two Spidermen and so forth). Call in live at 646-915-9620.

The Grand Scheme of Things~
THE HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY meets
"Stranger Than Fiction," in which two humans are accidentally sent to another universe and land in the middle of a story that is being written by a supreme being who has just come out of one of history's longest bouts of writer's block.
The author, Bill Friday, decides that his novel will play out on a giant ball of dirt that he calls The Earth, which, in his language means ‘profit making business venture.’ The presence of the two humans on the barren planet, however, has dramatic and historic consequences for The Earth, and
their existence threatens to ruin, not only the entire plot, but possibly Bill's career as well.
“Clever, insightful, and delightfully deranged, THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS takes our universe and imposes gravity upon it, so it can be turned upside down. It is an enjoyable story about someone who is unfit to be creating life—a cool comeback comedy that competently combines cosmological conjecture, courageous career courses, and coping with creative commons conflicts.”
–Logan J. Hunder, author of WITCHES BE CRAZY
