A gritty Sci-Fi thriller set in a dystopian future.
On a harsh and forgotten world, where Earth is little more than an ancient memory, everything is about to change.
Tana is a thief, living in a distant colony founded by convicts. Her life in the city has always been hard, but at least it was hers to control. Now powerful people driven by a remarkable discovery have coerced her into stealing something unthinkable – uncovering a long-forgotten secret that’s lain buried for over half a millennium. But often…secrets are kept with good reason. And now that the truth has been revealed nothing will ever be the same again.
Not for those who survive.
There was a long-held fear among the known races of the galaxy that no matter how powerful or technologically advanced they became, there would always be someone stronger–hiding far out in the deep recesses of the cosmos.
That fear has now been realized. A destructive alien armada has arrived, triggering a brutal war that will change the galaxy forever.
The only hope for survival rests with two, mortal adversaries–who must rise above their mutual hatred to work together on a dangerous mission. One is a lethal assassin unleashed on an unsuspecting enemy–a man so dangerous that even his own government wants him dead. The other, a ruthless alien invader with his own shocking agenda.
With enemies on both sides of the conflict, the assassin undergoes a personal revelation, striking at the very core of who and what he is. But will this epiphany lead to the salvation of the galaxy?
Or assure its destruction…
It’s not easy to take down the galaxy’s deadliest assassin. In fact, it’s damn hard. But if you do try to kill Kiro Tien, you’d better succeed.
Now he’s coming out of exile to exact his revenge, joining an unlikely group of allies – each with their own objective. From fighting on the front lines in a war against his own people, to infiltrating the one place in the universe that he dare not go, nothing will stop Tien from chasing down his prey. His enemies may have started this fight but Tien has sworn to end it.
And he doesn’t care how many bodies he piles up along the way…
A cybernetic monk travels the galaxy performing acts of penance for its murderous namesake. Its duty…its function, is to heal the damage caused by its sadistic progenitor. But during the dangerous journey, it discovers unsettling facts that force it to question its real purpose…and the true nature of its own existence.
Dodging death and disassembly, the monk uncovers a disturbing secret hidden by its religious masters. A secret that could threaten the fragile balance of power in the galaxy.
A secret they will kill to protect.
*A standalone story that takes place between the events of Assassin’s War and Assassin’s Prey.
A novel for fans of Golden Age science fiction.
When humans first discovered the aliens many believed that war was inevitable.
They were right…
Now a renowned scientist has disappeared from her private moon–far out on the fringes of human space–once again pushing mankind to the brink of war with the only other intelligent species in the galaxy.
A war they will likely lose.
Light years away, a madman has become convinced that nature’s blueprint for life is flawed, setting into motion a misguided plan that will kill billions.
An investigator sent to find the missing scientist ties these two events together, cutting through an elaborate web of subterfuge and deception–until finally, the truth is revealed. A horrible truth, that blurs the line between friend and enemy, and threatens the extinction of all sentient life in the galaxy.
The Sentients have been reclusive since the end of the Viral War – some say suspiciously so. But the fragile peace with mankind’s greatest enemy is about to be shattered.
An old friend has returned to Evan’s Moon, bearing news about an even older enemy. And this time it’s not just the galaxy at stake.
For Special Inquisitor Benjamin Malik…it’s something far more important than that.
