Mantis Force Trilogy by R. J. Amezcua

The Mantis Force Trilogy by R.J. Amezcua is now available to read! This is a science fiction book trilogy with elements of fantasy.


In a war-torn galaxy, Jazrene Vallo, the supreme spiritual leader of the Marium Kahnet, is close to fulfilling her divine destiny: refashion the Order as a beacon of light. But her plans for the sisterhood to become the official ambassadors of peace are compromised when she is forced to send mercenaries to capture rogue elements of the sisterhood seeking revenge against those responsible for murdering their families. Failure to capture them will bring an irreversible blemish upon the sisterhood. Unbeknownst to her, it may be too late to stop them.

After fifteen years of methodical planning and burrowing into the highly classified Leviathan project, the cadre of vengeful sisters are ready to execute their mission. Their goal: to destroy the Stadageos, vast military testing and bio-engineering bases where the twisted machinations of fallen creation formed the ungodly fierce races of Leviathans. Their failure will release death and destruction on a scale not experienced since the fall of creation. But even if they succeed, not all of them will survive.


Led by Victoria and Balese, the rogue sisters of the Marium Kahnet have successfully completed their life-long quest for revenge against the sorcerer’s guild. Now a new mission has begun, one of survival, as their enemies seek their lives with a vengeance. As planned, the sisters who managed to survive the destruction of the testing facilities have joined their adopted family’s nefarious criminal organizations, plotting to escape with detailed plans of the Leviathan project to justify their actions to their home world of Ramah. But they are unaware they are being hunted by elite mercenaries hired by the sisterhood.


It is a day of prophecy and celebration when Jazrene Vallo accomplishes her ordained task to refashion the Marium Kahnet, and witnesses them finally becoming representatives in the Grand Assembly of the Mantis Alliance. But the victory is soiled by reports of a faction of wayward sisters joining a necromancer Order, the Saurcine.

The rebels plan to bring forth the Krevomax, the seed of the Tisrad Dragon, to defeat the Mantis Alliance. To combat this new evil threat, in Jazrene Vallo’s last act as supreme leader, she activates the sisterhood’s elite warriors, the Criss Lumbra. Their mission: destroy the spawn of the Tisrad Dragon. Should they fail, it will mean the end of the sisterhood and all peace in the universe.

My world view and speculative fiction

The Marium Kahnet series and the Mantis Force universe for that matter is created from the point of view that major events in history are predetermined. My inspiration for that view comes from the Bible, where prophecies fall into several categories. Those that have passed, those are unfolding, and those yet to be fulfilled.  From within those prophecies are fantastic stories. Here are some examples:
In a prophecy in the book of Genesis, God told Noah to build an ark because He was going to send a flood. A hundred or so years after Noah received the warning the flood came causing the ultimate destruction of all life on earth. This soul gripping prophecy found itself being portrayed on the big screen.

In another prophecy found in the book of Genesis, God said to Abram, “Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a land , they will be enslaved and mistreated for four hundred years. But I will judge the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will depart with many possessions.” We now know that the land where they were strangers was Egypt. History tells us they were captive for four hundred years. After they were freed, they left with great wealth. Most of us have either heard of or have seen a movie depicting this particular fulfilled prophecy in films.

So, what I did, is create fictional prophecies as the foundations of the Mantis Force universe. Those prophecies are written in a sacred tome called the Kodashah comprised of smaller books. Within the Kodashah are prophecies of victories and defeats. For both the forces of good, represented by the Mantis and the forces of evil represented by the Tisrad Dragon.
About the Marium Kahnet series. (The power of the prophetess.)
First of all, in general, women are not represented well in the science fiction genre. At least not in a space opera setting. So, my challenge was to have women play critical roles in within the Mantis Force Universe. And since prophecy lays out the end result of a culmination of events I decided to create an order of prophetess’.  This is the holy order of the Marium Kahnet or (the sisterhood of prophetess’)  

About the title of my fictional universe. I used the word Mantis which in Greek is the word for Seer or Prophet. Mantis (Prophet) Force.

My Favorite Authors are Frank Hebert and C S Lewis.
