THE GAIA GAMBIT
Humans and Stacians have been sworn enemies for centuries, so Gaian Captain Lira Jannholm has no reason to trust Stacian starship commander Rast sen Drenthan when he proposes a bargain that will end a dangerous confrontation over a resource-rich planet. When Lira finds herself disgraced and discharged from duty through no fault of her own, she joins forces with Rast to discover the truth behind her reversal of fortune.
Running from ever-multiplying enemies in a ship stolen from one of the most powerful criminals in the sector, Rast and Lira discover they are pawns in a conspiracy that reaches into the highest levels of government and has put them in mortal danger. The secret they uncover could change the balance of power in the galaxy forever...not to mention destroy their own future together. (The Gaian Consortium Series: Volume 3)
Getting him in handcuffs was the easy part...
Treska Sivekka is the Huntress--the Union’s most skilled bounty hunter. Her targets? The psypaths whose mental talents summoned aliens attacks on the capital planet that left her body shattered and her mind a blank slate.
Now the last free psypath is in her crosshairs...if only he weren't her one chance at restoring her lost memories.
The alien attacks came out of nowhere and left the entire system reeling, but the aftermath caused twice as much destruction to the old social orders as psypaths like Micah Ariesis and near-humans like the Hathori became scapegoats for an inexplicable devastation...and then rebels against the repressive, reactionary government that rose from the ashes.
The last free psypath has one chance at victory for the rebellion...but it's the Huntress who holds the key.
