This is her chance at revenge. Something as trivial as overthrowing a government won’t stop her.

Sela Tyron’s discovery of a secret Ironvale Guild weapon project masterminded by the power-hungry Chancellor Okane has exposed harsh truths: The Poisoncry acolyte, Fisk, is still alive and her partner, Jon Veradin, is the reason why. 

Where Sela sees an opportunity for revenge, Jon has different plans. Tapped as the successor to the Ironvale Guild Master, he needs Sela’s help to thwart Okane from assuming control. If they don’t stop Okane, the Reaches will suffer. But can Sela forgive Jon and set aside her quest for revenge?

Meanwhile, the sentient Resurrection ship, Vo, has transformed the paradise of Narasmina into a hellish landscape. Desperate to rescue her daughter, Erelah Veradin and the officious Ironvale diplomat, Saito Koide, struggle to cross a ruined city filled with strange biomechanoid creations. Just as things seem their darkest, old allies, Rachel Northway and Maeve arrive to lend a hand. Together, will they be enough to defeat Vo and rescue Erelah’s family?

Allies and Enemies: Empire, the fifth book in the series, picks up right after the events of Allies and Enemies: Legacy in this space opera adventure with a heavy military sci-fi influence.

About the author

Amy J. Murphy is not a Jedi. (Although, she’s married to this Scottish guy that claims to be one.) 

She is, however, a fantastic liar—a gift she wields to craft space opera adventures involving kick ass heroines. Two books in her Allies and Enemies series have been Dragon Award finalists for Best Military Science Fiction or Fantasy Novel. And, she’s managed to infiltrate SFWA.

When not geeking out at sci-fi conventions, she lives in Vermont with the aforementioned Scotsman/Jedi and two canine overlords. Learn more at www.amyjmurphy.com or follow her on social media.

Allies and Enemies: Fallen, Book 1

Fight. Survive. Repeat. The rules of a soldier are simple.

Born into service of the Regime, Commander Sela Tyron is about as subtle as a hammer. To hammers, any problem can look like a nail, but things aren't always that easy. When Sela is abandoned with her team on a planet full of insurrectionists, things get complicated. A daredevil rescue by her commanding officer reaps deadly consequences, forcing Sela to choose between the only life she’s ever known and the fate of the man she's duty-bound to protect.

Her whole life was a lie. And that's the good news.

Shirking a life of privilege, Erelah Veradin dreamt of building spaceships and exploring the stars in the service of the Regime. When a monstrous truth about her true heritage is revealed, Erelah finds herself at the unwilling center of a scheming mastermind's bid for power.

Allies and Enemies: Rogues, Book 2

Fate can hold a grudge. 

For fugitives of the Regime, Sela Tyron and Jon Veradin, the evidence is undeniable. 

Their escape into the Reaches meant a chance at a new life together without looking over their shoulders. However, in this savage, hardscrabble region, the pair quickly find themselves targeted by scheming alien gangsters and cybernetically-enhanced Guild agents. 

She was supposed to be dead. That was the plan anyway. 

When a mysterious young woman with strange abilities wakes up as a prisoner of vicious Zenti pirates, a miraculous resurrection is the least of her concerns. Facing a host of new dangers, she needs to escape and find her brother. Can she trust a self-confessed spy to help?

Allies and Enemies: Exiles, Book 3

If you're going to start a war, know what's at stake. 

Ironvale. Splitdawn. Poisoncry.

Three bloodthirsty guilds that control the decaying corner of space called the Reaches. This balance of power exists at a tipping point. One nudge and chaos reigns.

Sela Tyron is willing to supply that nudge to help her partner with an important rescue. Even if it means trusting a shifty criminal. Or turning herself into a power-armored assassin.

Suit up. Time to join the fight.

The eighth book in the NYT bestselling Expanse series, Tiamat's Wrath finds the crew of the Rocinante fighting an underground war against a nearly invulnerable authoritarian empire, with James Holden a prisoner of the enemy. Now a Prime Original series.
Thirteen hundred gates have opened to solar systems around the galaxy. But as humanity builds its interstellar empire in the alien ruins, the mysteries and threats grow deeper.
In the dead systems where gates lead to stranger things than alien planets, Elvi Okoye begins a desperate search to discover the nature of a genocide that happened before the first human beings existed, and to find weapons to fight a war against forces at the edge of the imaginable. But the price of that knowledge may be higher than she can pay.
At the heart of the empire, Teresa Duarte prepares to take on the burden of her father's godlike ambition. The sociopathic scientist Paolo Cortázar and the Mephistophelian prisoner James Holden are only two of the dangers in a palace thick with intrigue, but Teresa has a mind of her own and secrets even her father the emperor doesn't guess.
And throughout the wide human empire, the scattered crew of the Rocinante fights a brave rear-guard action against Duarte's authoritarian regime. Memory of the old order falls away, and a future under Laconia's eternal rule -- and with it, a battle that humanity can only lose -- seems more and more certain. Because against the terrors that lie between worlds, courage and ambition will not be enough...
