“AMBASADORA has a lot to say about the human spirit and it says it well.”
-Mike Resnick, Nebula and Hugo Award-winning author
“With an anthropologist’s eye for world building and an engaging fast-paced style, Heidi Ruby Miller hurtles her characters through a dystopian labyrinth in which hollow beauty is revered and love a virtual crime.”
-Christopher Paul Carey, EXILES OF KHO
“Beautifully vibrant and intricately textured, Heidi Ruby Miller’s AMBASADORA explores the value of true humanity, the limitless power of desire and the triumph of the individual soul. Amidst edge-of-the-seat action, Miller effortlessly incorporates the conflicts of the modern woman inherent in upholding feminist sensibility. AMBASADORA is a banquet of sumptuous words, a truly exciting adventure that fans of science fiction are sure to enjoy.”
