Genre: sci-fi romance

 

December 2016 – Update!

Thank you, beta readers!

I found 90% of my beta readers via Craigslist. Their feedback was totally objective, and they were not paid to read or review my book. I lost two out of twelve CLers. But those who finished my Manuscript loved it. The readers below were great, and I appreciate them for volunteering to read my full Manuscript.

Rose Garcia, Ann Gussman, Crystal Wrinkler, Brandi Philips, Anthony Valenz, and Becky Zimmerman.

Special thanks to my beta readers who did more than just read my MS, but also gave comprehensive feedback: Marta Gonzalez-Stitts, Connie Abrew, Matthew Hamilton Farmer, Steven Farmer, Susan Skipper, Marsha Morales, Kathleen Hicks, A.K.A Kat Stiles, Ingrid Foster, and my mother, Donna Soley.

Reviews on full manuscript:

“I’ll start by saying I was completely blown away by your book. I’m impressed by how well made this book is.  Not just the story, but the formatting. It’s an easy read. That being said the story is excellent. It transcends so many genres. You have a small scale story of a soldier kidnapping a woman, and turn into a burgeoning romance novel, and it would have been good enough with just that. Then you added the backdrop of a looming war, the political effects of taking a foreign woman with child, and the sci-fi element. Combined them, and then you took the sci-fi to the next level. Never a dull moment. And it all flows together seamlessly.” – Steven Farmer – SPOILER ALERT! If you’d like to read this full review, please contact me.

“The Warrior from Monde” is a great book. I for one only read when necessary, never for entertainment. This book has changed my ways. It appealed to me so much that I’m going to start reading more and watching Netflix less. I can’t wait for the next book “End of One”. Thank you for opening this world to me Sylvia Petro. – Matthew Farmer

I love it! The image of Lucian fits the book’s description. It projects his other-worldliness, non-human power and magnificent beauty… I’m very excited for you Ms. Petro. I await my official copy! – Marta Gonzalez-Stitts

Reviews for free chapters:

“‘A Spirited and Proficiently Written Debut That Has My Mouth Hung Open like The Catch Of The Day’

S.N. Petro released the first three chapters from her upcoming novel, The Warrior From Monde recently through social media. Noticing immediately the high class and well-written form of the piece, I knew that I wasn’t dealing with the likes of any amateur writer. I wouldn’t even feel comfortable using the term amateur to describe such a work.” – Eric May (Author of The Will’s Downfall Saga & Owner/Operator of The Grim Tower) Read more of this review below in the comments section.

“You paint a wonderfully visual story sista!” – Member of Black Science Fiction Society

It sounds incredibly interesting. I would love to read more. Lucian almost sounds like Imaro with powers. – C. “Doc”

I like the style of your prose. It wasn’t overt and flowery but set a good tone for imagery, detail, and characterization. Most importantly it kept me engaged for all 25 pages, pulling me forward. When the story does that, u have a winner. – Member of Black Science Fiction Society

End of One (book two)

Genre: Adult sci-fi romance

Character idea for Amina, who is Mya reborn.

This novel introduces, Amina. Once a star Marine, Mya, is now depressed, suicidal and some might say, delusional. Her mind is more on death than life. And her connection to the people around her is lost. The military was perfect for an emotionally vacant woman like her. But, an RPG blast ends her career and disfigures her body. Never before did she feel like such a loser, until she starts her civilian career, working as and over-the-phone computer technician. She wants out. Soon, she gets her wish…

More on this novel coming soon.

  2. “A Spirited and Proficiently Written Debut That Has My Mouth Hung Open like The Catch Of The Day”

    S.N. Petro released the first three chapters from her upcoming novel, The Warrior From Monde recently through social media. Noticing immediately the high class and well-written form of the piece, I knew that I wasn’t dealing with the likes of any amateur writer. I wouldn’t even feel comfortable using the term amateur to describe such a work. However, I did at first have a rough time catching hold from the very beginning. That’s no fault of the author’s however; as I must admit that this brand of fantasy is not a genre I am fully acquainted with. Being a man more interested in the wild and whimsical, as well as the outlandish material that seems better fit for that of comic books; it was admittedly new to me. Nevertheless, Robert E. Howard and George R.R. Martin began to ring bells within my head as I scoured through the prose. As I kept reading, I found myself being slowly sucked in as I witnessed the capture of a young woman by that of what I assumed would at first be a rather cruel Marquis. It even seemed to head in the direction of a Game Of Thrones moment, yet took a turn for the unexpected that I would have never seen coming.

    As I continued reading, I became further and further interested in the tale and its characters (who seemed to end up walking through my head, as characters often and do) which at the point consisted of a handsome yet battle-worn Marquis, the captured woman and her child and one of the King’s many servants who seemed to wonder exactly what was going on. But as we’ll later witness, there is much more to the captured girl and her child than we’d ever imagined and I’ll reckon the King will want to know every detail for himself at some point in time. The three chapters were short, but they got the pot boiling with just enough steam to keep me entertained and curious as to what fate holds in store for all of the pieces on the playing board. With the first twenty-five pages, she’s merely set everything up and only a few moves have been made. But I was left hanging on the last word, torn away from the world in just as little time as I had spent inside of it. There’s most certainly a treasure to be unearthed in the work of S.N. Petro, but I’ve no idea as to what will unfold in the chapters and pages to come. We know very little of the world and what it may hold in the future, but I’m quite interested in this and other subsequent works from the author.

    So who exactly is the warrior from Monde? That I believe might be one of the books identifying questions, which would probably tear it open at the seams and spill the pot over entirely. I feel that S.N. Petro’s approach of pulling a curtain over my eyes while revealing merely a few scant details at a time was just enough to slowly hook me in with an expression tantamount to the proverbial “catch of the day.” There’s no question in my lengthy history of writing, that we’ve got a memorable name here in S.N. Petro. This, ladies and gentlemen; is how it’s done! – Eric May (Author of The Will’s Downfall Saga & Owner/Operator of The Grim Tower)
