One Night at Kedasi

This story is my homage to some of my favorite action-SciFi films/novels. It immediately follows The First Ambassador to Crustacea (started here, on ABCTales, kickstarted and available in print now), and will hopefully serve as the first full novel in a series. Enjoy! As always, feedback is welcome :)
