Stopover at the Backworlds' Edge

M. Pax
Free sample

Nothing sane travels the starway. Today it brings disaster.

In the far future, humanity settles the stars, bioengineering its descendants to survive in a harsh universe. This is the second book in the science fiction series, The Backworlds. A space opera adventure.

Revenge is on Craze’s mind. He chews on it every day along with the relentless dust on Pardeep Station. He dreams of grander wealth, enough to make his father choke.

That’s the dream consuming him when the interstellar portal opens, spitting out a ship that should no longer exist. A battleship spoiling for a fight. Yet the war with the Foreworlds ended two generations ago.

One wrong move and the shaky truce will end. So will Craze and his friends.

Time is running out for Michael Reznik as he searches for a way to deactivate his body's kill switch before his time literally expires. Reznik makes his way to the surface with the mysterious Rin as his guide and discovers a post-apocalyptic wasteland that is brutal and unforgiving, a land totally foreign to the country he knew.

Gangs of vicious marauders and slavers, nefarious corporations, and mysterious creatures preying on people in the night will challenge Reznik every step of his journey. His potential allies are far outnumbered by the growing number of enemies standing in his way. As Reznik struggles to survive in this new world, Rin searches for her own redemption, to make up for past failures. Will Reznik be able to find his solution with the clock ticking down?

Extensis Vitae: The Shattered Land is the second volume in the gritty, action-packed Extensis Vitae series.
