All that is about to change.
Mazzy Webber is a lowly janitor on a third-rate cargo ship. Deeply in debt, when his captain decides to turn pirate, he leaps at the chance.
A modern Robin Hood—minus the part where he gives back to the poor—Webber lays down a few ground rules. No attacking manned ships, and no stealing from anyone who can't afford it. Within months, he and the crew are out of debt. Their next target will make them rich.
But the attack goes all wrong. The target's cargo could be the death of them—or it could be the key to reaching the stars.
From the author of the bestselling BREAKERS novels, OUTLAW is the first book in a new series of piracy, conspiracy, and space's deadliest janitor.
But in defeat, Finn has revealed a secret only he knew: an alien invasion fleet is on its way toward Earth. And it will arrive in a matter of months.
Led by billionaire-turned-strategist Toman Benez and the pirate warlord Kansas Carruth, the System's battered forces prepare their defenses and muster a fleet. Total war is coming for them. If they fail, it will mean the end of the human race.
In desperation, Rada and Webber fly to the Locker. A pirate station in Uranus orbit, its fleet may be the only thing capable of resisting the FinnTech forces. But as Rada fights to bring the Locker to her side, she discovers a new conspiracy.
FinnTech's move has been decades in the making. And they won't stop until the Solar System is theirs.
But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.
Rosalind’s neocarbon broadsword and chemo gun are all that stand between her defenseless sheep and roaming packs of snarling wolves. Together with her border collie, Sox, she guards the flocks in the ashen pastures of the valley, the only home she’s ever known.
But the valley has changed over the past year. Her fellow pastoralists—once numbering in the hundreds of thousands—have disappeared. She’s changed, too: becoming self-aware; becoming larger than herself; becoming ravenous. She’s started slaughtering sheep to fuel her insatiable appetite—and the Makers aren’t happy.
When a stranger arrives on her doorstep, Rosalind discovers how far the Makers will go to end the slaughter . . . and her life. But she has a surprise in store for them—one that will change the valley forever.
Lightburst: The Pastoralist is tailor-made for on-the-go readers who need a quick sci-fi fix! The short story also includes bonus chapters from Survival Aptitude Test: Sound and Survival Aptitude Test: Hope’s Graveyard, two books in the post-apocalyptic sci-fi series, The Extinction Odyssey.
