Book choice for March 2016

Gatekeeper [suggested by Uzma Ali]

Gatekeeper

Fighting for his freedom in the popular convicts’ Tournament does not turn out as Jann Argent expected. The "prize" is enforced exile to humanity’s first colony planet.

His interstellar journey brings him into contact with a motley bunch of fellow travellers. What is it about the members of the group that drew them together? Why do three of them share a problem with amnesia? And what unworldly force causes their ship to crash-land on the new world in the middle of a violent storm?

GATEKEEPER is a science fiction / fantasy crossover that will appeal both to lovers of space-faring tales of alien worlds, and to those who adore the mystical, magical stories of Stephen Donaldson, Tanith Lee and Marion Zimmer Bradley. It explores the potential for ordinary people to become more than they are, and fulfil unexpected destinies in the face of extraordinary challenges. [Product description from Amazon]
