After a human and alien form a telepathic link, the commanders of the Endurance have a special mission for Laure and Kuna: Create an elite class of warriors connected with the alien Chroins. 

They must lead a group of volunteers into the primeval forests of an unexplored planet as they search for beasts like Kuna that are strong, fast, and lethal. 

But the Chroin aren’t the only threat. Not all colonists want to welcome them, and some will stop at nothing to get rid of them. 

Can Laure and Kuna bring their two species together? Or will they tear each other apart?

However, knowledge can be more damning than ignorance. As forces work to create distrust between the aliens and colonists, an “accident” is all they need for tensions to boil over. 

On the run for their lives, Laure and Kuna must find a way to create peace between their people or be hunted down and executed. 

The Strength of Endurance is the third book in the futuristic Under a New Sun science fiction series. If you like alien encounters, high-stakes action, and strong heroines, then you’ll love R. L. Blalock’s riveting saga.

  1. I like the books and covers. The one that intrigues me the most is The Burden of Endurance because I wonder if the woman is a plastic figurine. Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. The book covers are interesting with their alien "animal-like" character along with the girl. I think it fits well with the futuristic theme of the book.

    1. Thanks, Jennifer! I've always been a fan of animal companions in novels so I couldn't resist bringing them into my own. Mine just happen to be gigantic aliens, but what's not to love about that?
