Books by Vikki Romano / Victoria Oliveri
Vikki is an eclectic writer with her fingers in many genres. As a history buff, it was easy to realize historical fiction would be the first of the books she would pen, but as a long time tech junky, she knew that would play into her stories as well and so the SciFi series was born.
With such a vivid imagination, it’s hard to say what will come next, just that there will be much, much more.

In 2065, corporate sponsored governments jockey for supremacy in the biotechnical arena. Bullets and missiles take a back seat to cyber-enhanced soldiers and pulse weapons. In this extreme environment, only the most hardened body and mind can survive.
Calder McKenna was a failed experiment in the military’s push for power. Now a special agent for the metro task force, he lives day by day trying to forget the ones that were lost… the ones that he could have saved.
When technology and humanity collide, Calder is forced to make desperate decisions, but how do you destroy the monster without becoming one yourself?

“Hard Sci-fi” has been such a high-traffic lane for so long that it’s developed some nasty potholes. For example, there’s a special flavor of disappointment to stepping into a brand-new hidden realm of adventure only to realize that all its imaginary, cutting-edge technology from the future feels like something you’ve seen before. “Edge of Darkness” handily avoids this pitfall and others endemic to the subgenre, and it does so without wavering from the dead center line of the literary roadway it follows. It’s familiar in all the right ways–it builds upon classic sci-fi fundamentals while remaining satisfyingly original and well-crafted. The characters feel organic, and to the extent that they inhabit archetypes, those archetypes always receive some unexpected, non-traditional treatment that keeps things fresh.
There was no hesitation when it came time to pick up the next book in the series, and I’m happy to say that what I’ve read of it so far is excellent and of increasing subtlety. I’m as excited to follow Romano’s authorial evolution as I am to follow Calder and Sierra’s exploits.
