In desperation, Rada and Webber fly to the Locker. A pirate station in Uranus orbit, its fleet may be the only thing capable of resisting the FinnTech forces. But as Rada fights to bring the Locker to her side, she discovers a new conspiracy.
FinnTech's move has been decades in the making. And they won't stop until the Solar System is theirs.
But in defeat, Finn has revealed a secret only he knew: an alien invasion fleet is on its way toward Earth. And it will arrive in a matter of months.
Led by billionaire-turned-strategist Toman Benez and the pirate warlord Kansas Carruth, the System's battered forces prepare their defenses and muster a fleet. Total war is coming for them. If they fail, it will mean the end of the human race.
She finds herself matched at every step by his grimly determined lieutenant, Lowell. With progress slower than expected, Raina is forced to accept the creation of a war council. But the council's will to fight is weakening by the day. Pressured by her enemies and from within, Raina soon finds her grip on the island slipping.
But the threat of losing her people is nothing compared to the threat Ness and his alien friend Sebastian have discovered across the Pacific.
Then the world ends.
After Ness discovers his best friend dead of disease, Shawn takes their family to the mountains to wait out the plague. As Tristan's parents fall sick, she's left to care for her younger brother Alden. Both sets of siblings dig in for the long haul. Humanity is reduced to splinters. And then the creatures who sent the virus appear in the sky.
Flushed from the mountains, Shawn and Ness join a tribe at a nuclear power plant, where they plan to launch a guerrilla war against the invaders. In California, Tristan and Alden are taken prisoner. Separated from her brother, Tristan crosses the ruins of America to track him down. She will stop at nothing to get Alden back--but her fellow survivors prove even more dangerous than the monsters who broke the world.

All that is about to change.
Mazzy Webber is a lowly janitor on a third-rate cargo ship. Deeply in debt, when his captain decides to turn pirate, he leaps at the chance.
A modern Robin Hood—minus the part where he gives back to the poor—Webber lays down a few ground rules. No attacking manned ships, and no stealing from anyone who can't afford it. Within months, he and the crew are out of debt. Their next target will make them rich.
But the attack goes all wrong. The target's cargo could be the death of them—or it could be the key to reaching the stars.
From the author of the bestselling BREAKERS novels, OUTLAW is the first book in a new series of piracy, conspiracy, and space's deadliest janitor.
