He couldn’t die without her, and he wouldn’t die with her. Not if she had anything to say about it.

The tide has turned in a centuries’ long war, and the Intergalactic Military has been tapped to step in and lend a hand. Sent to assist the Bo’Estrons, Captain Jelia Linh and her crew find themselves under immediate attack and in a fight for their own lives.

The rescue goes wrong, and ironically Kaxx must save the ones sent to aid them, but he isn’t expecting the feelings the female captain invokes.  The tingling sensation he gets when he touches her. It couldn’t be…could it? He’d missed his chance long ago.

The mission to help find the missing crewmembers is proving futile, as they’re all being picked off one bunker at a time. The battle is heating up, and it’s no longer about protecting their own. The Bo’Estron are fighting back, but with the Varnarians teaming up with the Hojinths, do they stand a chance? 

War. Betrayal. Enemies. Allies. Saviors. Mates.

Torn between duty and love, two become one.

Where’s The Fat Lady? - Book # 6 - The war has been happening over the skies of the earth and seems to have no end to it. Worse than that now warriors from the different civilizations, the Kinsus, the Kazinazils, and the Celiferberites are facing off on the earth itself. Humans desperately try to influence their own fate; refusing to be reduced mere to spectators. The three advanced civilizations with a stake in the outcome of the war resolved nothing. Betrayals finally force an end to the conflict. The two semi-triumphant civilizations propose humans replace all the battle ships they lost in their star system. Humans, appearing to see they have little choice, agree to replace their ships. The truth is humans see they may yet be able to get something out of this war. The ability bring the war to an enemy, and spare the earth itself. The destruction such events bring to a planet. Even in this war there is a prize …the decision on what the inhabitants of the earth’s fate will be; how long until that fate full day; and who gets to decide. Enemies once manipulated against each other are now allies. The one real power has found an answer. The group now clearly and undeniably with power beyond measure. But is it the correct one? Luck was with all the other civilizations. While the Κοῖοςgics were interested in the events transpiring. Although they did not involve themselves in the war directly; they believe they have found the answer to what the other contestants together, were not. Their interest in the events was of a different sort; else there would have been but one victor remaining. In an unresolved war no one is truly triumphant. So for now; while the dominant species of the earth, appears to no longer pose a threat to the universe. Questions remain. Will humanity survive to join the chorus of advanced civilizations? Because some will stay, while others will not. Will those others return?  The final decision will be evident only in whether if what as has come to be, will move human kind forward. There still remains the one impediment, humans must overcome. The vain of all civilizations doomed to extinction. They must move forward from their ingrained tendencies which tether them to the wrong path. Humans must recognized choice is and will always be; if they are to shed the mantle of unworthiness. The possibility of that has certainly grown. Humanity has seen the destruction weapons, they as yet have not created, might someday rain upon their world. Unimaginable perhaps even irreversible destruction. If they do not learn that differences in creed, culture, belief, and yes even race; are as to life as is existence.
Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game is the winner of the Nebula and Hugo Awards

In order to develop a secure defense against a hostile alien race's next attack, government agencies breed child geniuses and train them as soldiers. A brilliant young boy, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin lives with his kind but distant parents, his sadistic brother Peter, and the person he loves more than anyone else, his sister Valentine. Peter and Valentine were candidates for the soldier-training program but didn't make the cut—young Ender is the Wiggin drafted to the orbiting Battle School for rigorous military training.

Ender's skills make him a leader in school and respected in the Battle Room, where children play at mock battles in zero gravity. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister.

Is Ender the general Earth needs? But Ender is not the only result of the genetic experiments. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender's two older siblings are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives.

Ender's Game is the winner of the 1985 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1986 Hugo Award for Best Novel.

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...
