Unbound Worlds—The Best Sci Fi and Fantasy Books of June 2018

In this first book in the Step By Step trilogy, global catastrophe occurs as all plastic mysteriously liquefies. All the small components making many technologies possible—navigation systems, communications, medical equipment—fail.

And this is only the beginning . . .

Morgan Llywelyn's masterly epic, The Irish Century, continues in 1949, a sequel to 1916 and 1921.

The struggle of the Irish people for independence is one of the compelling historical dramas of the twentieth century. 1949 tells the story of Ursula Halloran, a fiercely independent young woman who comes of age in the 1920s. The tragedy of Irish civil war gives way in the 1920s to a repressive Catholic state led by Eamon De Valera. Married women cannot hold jobs, divorce is illegal, and the IRA has become a band of outlaws still devoted to and fighting for a Republic that never lived. The Great Depression stalks the world, and war is always on the horizon, whether in Northern Ireland, Spain, or elsewhere on the European continent.

Ursula works for the fledgling Irish radio service and then for the League of Nations, while her personal life is torn between two men: an Irish civil servant and an English pilot.

Defying Church and State, Ursula bears a child out of wedlock, though she must leave the country to do so, and nearly loses her life in the opening days of World War II. Eventually she returns to an Ireland that is steadfastly determined to remain neutral during the war.

1949 is the story of one strong woman who lives through the progress of Ireland from a broken land to the beginnings of a modern independent state.

NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR, ELLE CASEY, brings readers Book 1 of DRIFTERS' ALLIANCE, an ongoing Science Fiction Space Opera series.

One hand of cards and it's all over but the crying...

Cass Kennedy finally gets what she's been dreaming of for the past ten years: a drifter ship to call her own. All the sim time and battle training is going to pay off in spades as she sets her course for the future. She'll be living on her own terms, not those of her father.

But drifting through deep space with a crew of nutty strangers on the DS Anarchy carries a lot more surprises than she bargained for. Nobody told her that her ship is falling apart, that dead chickens are something you really want to hang on to, and that the OSG has big plans for the universe that don't necessarily jibe with her plans for herself.

Jump onboard with Cass and her crew as she charts a course toward an alliance that will either make her or break her as Captain of the DS Anarchy.

GENRE: Science Fiction, Space Opera
AUDIENCE: For older teens and adults
CONTENT WARNING: Colorful language, sexy stuff, and general badassery

HERE'S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT DRIFTERS' ALLIANCE, BOOK 1:

“I couldn't put it down! The feel of the story reminded me of FIREFLY! So for you sci fi geeks like me I would say this book is SHINEY! for everyone else its a great story and I enjoyed it a lot. I highly recommend buying it, you won’t be sorry.” ~ Deanna, Amazon reviewer

“Page turner… Just like with other books by Elle Casey once I picked this book up I couldn't put it down and before I knew it I was done… I can't wait to see what happens next. In fact I have already pre-ordered book 2. Happy reading.”  ~ Jana La Pelle, Goodreads reviewer

“Drifters’ Alliance is very different than Elle Casey's other work, but it is still just as amazing! Elle has a talent for making the characters come alive... I can't wait for the next book in this series. If you have never read sci-fi or space operas before this is the one to start with!” ~ Ken Kennedy, Goodreads reviewer

“Hooked! Absolutely, positively LOVED it! Devoured it in a few hours and now I'm craving more. As usual, with Elle's strong writing and blend of humor packed into a butt-kicking female heroine, you're going to get a great story. Also typical of her writing, it will be easy to get lost in this world.” ~ Laura Shipp, Amazon reviewer
