Title: The Purveli by Dianne Duvall
Series: Aldebarian Alliance #3
Published by Tantor Audio on 18 January, 2022
Genres: Action & Adventure, Romance, Science Fiction, Science Fiction & Fantasy
Narrator: Kirsten Potter
Length: 10 hours and 59 minutes
Ava has always been different. Born with strong telepathic abilities, she lives a very isolated life until she is offered a job with an obscure network that aids powerful Immortal Guardians in their quest to protect humanity from the psychotic vampires who prey upon them. Suddenly, she doesn't feel so different. For the first time in her life, Ava has found a place where she belongs. She's happy. Life is good. And when her employers invite her to join a group of other gifted ones and a handful of Immortal Guardians on a journey to another planet, it becomes absolutely fantastic.
In no time at all, she is speeding across the galaxy aboard a Lasaran warship manned by two amazing alien races. It's the dream of a lifetime... until a vicious attack by a mutual enemy of Lasara and Earth lands her alone in an escape pod with no habitable planet in sight and only one ship within range: one that carries the enemy who wants to know why the bioengineered virus they released on Earth long ago didn't exterminate humanity and leave the planet ripe for their claiming.
Jak'ri doesn't know how long he has been a prisoner aboard the Cebaun, but he fears the enemy's twisted experiments will soon lead them to a virus that will eradicate the Purveli people. Despair grips him until a female from Earth is taken captive and reaches out to him telepathically. The gift that Ava said caused her such misery in the past soon becomes his salvation as the two of them form a fast friendship. Determined to distract each other from the horrors of their existence, they immerse themselves in telepathic communion during the day, then seek solace and adventure together in shared dreams. As their friendship deepens into love, the two hatch a daring plot to escape their captors. But the enemy will not let them go without a fight.
Can Ava and Jak'ri stand against so many and emerge victorious?
Contains mature themes.

Fun Q&A with Dianne Duvall
Flora: Hi Dianne, welcome once again to Flora’s Musings.
Dianne: Hi, Flora! Thanks so much for helping me celebrate the release of THE PURVELI. I’m very happy to be here today.😊
Flora: I used to say that I didn’t read sci-fi. That was before I found out you were releasing one and I read The Lasaran. It was fantastic! You captured me and threw me into deep space and I loved every minute of it – the Aldebarian Alliance series has me hooked.
Dianne, what age were you when you read your first science fiction story and can you remember what inspired you to pick it up? Did you even enjoy it or was it a “miss”?
Dianne: I’ve been a voracious reader ever since the second grade and have always particularly enjoyed stories that are adventurous. I picked up the first science fiction story I read when I was a teenager. Unfortunately, that first sci-fi book was a miss… so much so that I actually didn’t read another for years. LOL. But I LOVE sci-fi movies. The concept of venturing into the great unknown has always appealed to me. So when sci-fi romance took off, I couldn’t resist diving in and giving sci-fi another chance. I’ve been devouring it ever since. 🙂
Flora: I know existing Aldebarian Alliance fans like me will be VERY excited by this next book. I love seeing the overall series story evolve and fill out. But, can The Purveli be read in isolation for those not familiar with the series?
Dianne: Yes. Every book in this series can be read as a stand-alone. It follows fifteen women from Earth who are being ferried from Earth to the planet Lasara when their ship is attacked. Each woman will have her own adventure. So readers who haven’t read the first two won’t be lost if they pick this one up.
Flora: At this point, with The Purveli being book three, do you know how many books will be in Aldebarian Alliance series? Are there any characters desperately clamoring at you to get their story told?
Dianne: Right now, it looks like there will be fifteen stand-alone novels in the series. But it wouldn’t surprise me at all if the Aldebarian Alliance didn’t produce a spin-off/related series or two. I really loved the Segonian crew in the second book and would like to see more of those guys find their HEA. The Yona intrigue me, too. And even though we’ve only seen glimpses of them, the Akseli crew has been on my mind a lot.
As for which character is clamoring the loudest for his story to be told, you’ll find out in the sneak peek into Book 4 that I included in THE PURVELI. 😉
Flora: Dianne, I know that whatever romance sub-genre you’re currently writing in is the one you tend to read in your spare time. I’d love to know what books you read while you were writing The Purveli?
Dianne: Yep. That’s one of my writing quirks. I like to read whatever genre and subgenre I’m currently writing. It helps me stay in that mindset. And while I don’t recall exactly which books I read while writing THE PURVELI, these are the ones that came to mind: Lindsay Buroker’s FALLEN EMPIRE series, Laurann Dohner’s VESLOR MATES series, Mina Carter’s ALIEN AI’S MARINE, Ann Aguirre’s STRANGE LOVE, Kelsey Nicole Price’s THE CYBORG CHRONICLES, and Ruby Lionsdrake’s MANDRAKE COMPANY series.
Flora: Thank you, Dianne, for answering my questions and for writing such stellar stories.
Dianne: Thank you for the fun interview, Flora. I hope you and your readers will enjoy THE PURVELI!
