A romantic sci-fi thriller

Captain Kiera Bo is a valiant resistance fighter, but years of interstellar war have hardened her heart. To win, she must be as inhuman as her enemy: the all-conquering cyborg Dominion. When she’s captured by a Dominion battleship, at the mercy of Thaarn, its ruthless half-metal warlord, she expects only torture and death.

But Thaarn—destroyer of worlds, slayer of countless thousands—is no longer the mechanical Dominion killer he once was. With his cyberwire implants failing, he’s regaining his lost humanity—and he’s driven to atone for the slaughter he’s wrought.

When Thaarn offers an unthinkable alliance, Kiera sneers at his ‘guilt’ for trickery. The Dominion feel no pain, no remorse, no emotion other than rage. But with mutiny brewing among Thaarn’s murderous crew—and the fate of an entire resistance colony in her hands—Kiera must face the truth about her own dark crimes, and choose: die with her humanity intact, or win as a monster…

NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES—THE MASTERPIECE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON
 
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
 
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
 
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.
