Skye City: Sister of a Rebel Soldier (The Darkness of Emmi Book 1)

by R. D. Hale

Note: The Sister of a Rebel Soldier book is a spin-off from the Skye City: The Trials of Arturo series, intended as a more accessible read. It is aimed primarily at teenagers. The book can be read as a stand-alone, but those who have read the other books will better understand the world. There is a glossary at the beginning to explain any unfamiliar terms.

My name is Emmi Basilides. I am an orphan living in the slums of Medio city. Every slumdog I know underestimates me. They think I am a dumb kid who could not survive alone, not without my brother, but I have been through so much, and I have never asked anyone to fight my battles. My mother abandoned me when I was five years old and here I am – about to reach the grand old age of sixteen. Believe me, anyone who can survive ten years in this place deserves respect.

Ever since my brother Arturo started working for a mysterious man, our lives changed dramatically. At first, Arturo had money and it went to his head, but then he disappeared. I thought I was never going to see him again, until he escaped… from prison.

That is when things really got crazy. Our friend Killow was infected by nanites which gave him superpowers, but also turned him evil. And now we have no idea where he is. Oh, and I forgot to mention our friend Dynah who also has superpowers and is non-evil.

The plague came and my best friend Lel died. It broke my heart, but I will not be beaten by this world. ‘Live for the moment’ is what Lel used to say, and I will move forward in her honour. I will prove to my brother I am not a kid any more, and I will show our rotten country that this dumb, blonde, ‘bottom-leveller’ is a force to be reckoned with.

Boralene (Stellar Merger Book 1)

by Nathan Jones

He’s never wanted for anything in his life.

Except someone to share it with.

Tycho spent his childhood exploring the universe. During his teenage years he spent lifetimes in the simulated worlds of full immersion. His life is one of unparalleled luxury, with every whim catered to by robotic companions. He has unlimited freedom to explore his interests. 

And it took nearly dying for him to realize he’s never felt truly alive.

With that wake up call Tycho finally realizes that he’s been missing something in his life, a lack he hadn’t even noticed before, but now feels keenly. He’s been missing real connections and interactions with other humans. Something deeper than simple allnet acquaintances.

Now he means to change that, searching to discover if he’s the only human in the universe who feels like he’s spent a perfect life living alone.

(Author’s note: Boralene is my first venture into Science Fiction and contains some mild adult themed romantic elements.)

Empire Dawn (Road To Empire Book 1)

by Dietmar Wehr

The grand experiment of a democratic Commonwealth of Star Nations has failed. With colony after colony leaving the Commonwealth, Earth finds itself in desperate straits as ecological disaster and mass starvation looms in the near future. The collapse of the Commonwealth means there’s now a power vacuum but no shortage of ruthless egos looking to fill that vacuum. Will it be the Republic of Corona, the most prosperous and populous colony world or a resurgent Earth under a messianic leader or perhaps a power-hungry interstellar corporation? With stakes this high, political intrigue, backstabbing and betrayal are par for the course. Empire Dawn is the first of a two-book series that looks at how empires rise. For fans of military SF. Book Two (Empire Ascendant) can be pre-ordered now for publication in early December 2018.

Excerpt:

Stoner let out a sigh of relief when 007 cleared the atmosphere. The onboard radar still wasn’t showing any bogies, but the more powerful orbiting radars’ data was being relayed to all defense boats. A warble tone in his helmet’s speakers notified him that the Squadron’s lead boat had transmitted the tactical orders. Stoner read the orders on his console’s small screen and whistled in surprise.

“What is it?” asked Mbutu.

“Firing orders. We fire all our birds at the same time at the same target.”

Mbutu nodded. “Makes sense if we want to overwhelm their defensive lasers.”

Stoner said nothing. It did make sense, but he had a bad feeling about it for some reason.

Henry Gallant and the Warrior (The Henry Gallant Saga Book 3)

by H. Peter Alesso

As the last starfighter, it’s up to Henry Gallant to stop the alien invasion. 

The people of the Solar System have banded together against an alien invasion. Unfortunately, they’re losing–badly.

As the only Natural remaining in the genetically engineered officer corps of the United Planet’s fleet, Henry Gallant has unique mental abilities that have proven essential to the defense against the Titan invaders. Nevertheless, his fellow officers lack faith in him, and worse, he has angered prominent men by speaking truth to power.

Despite this, Admiral Collingsworth has given him command of the Warrior, the most advanced stealth warship in the UP arsenal and ordered him to the alien’s main base to spy, intrigue, and disrupt their war capacity.

Gallant’s mission leads to risky battles and painful choices, but no choice is more personal or intimate than the choice to face your own death. And for Henry Gallant–a flawed young man, in a hopeless situation, against overwhelming odds–a dreadful decision looms before him.

He has only one saving grace–he is unafraid.

Tilt (Upside Down Book 1)

by Todd Simpson

“Destined to be the next monumental SiFi epic saga everyone will want to read!”
“Very interesting concept and great writing.”
“Tilt is smart, engaging, funny, and timely. It deals with questions around future encounters and conflicts between human and artificial intelligences in a playful, surprising, thought-provoking way.”
— Amazon.com reviews.

Ayaka and Millicent are researchers on the planet Tilt. They believe, though they are having trouble proving, that they have developed a true general artificial intelligence; the problem is that these intelligences are so strange, so different, that it is hard to tell for sure. When Tilt is hailed by ships full of similar beings, announcing their intentions to land and lay claim to Tilt, Ayaka and Millicent are put on the spot. Should Tilt ignore these beings, blast them out of the sky, or give them the chance to prove that they are intelligent once and for all? When the ships end up attacking Tilt, Ayaka is left with no options. Thus begins an epic battle.

A member of the Creed, Ellie wants nothing to do with this being whom she considers demon-spawn. She is already fighting her attraction to his best friend, the Nephilim rebel, Siddhart. But the upcoming annual Balance ritual and an incomprehensible prophecy declares that a stubborn Scarred Woman will bring Disruption to the Nephilim community. Ellie prides herself on her integrity, but, marriage to a Nephilim prince would excuse her from the ritual and probable death. There is no one more stubborn or scarred than Ellie.

And would she really give up her faith and religion in order to bring salvation to the descendants of demons?

2. Three lovers – Woden, a Nephilim Prince; Siddhart, Woden’s captain and rebellious best friend; and Ellie, the human Black woman they both love who may be fated to bring disaster or salvation to the Nephilim.
3. Two prophecies – the prophecy of the stubborn Scarred Woman fated to bring Disruption, and the prophecy of the Beautiful One who will bring peace and salvation to the Nephililm.
4. And one decision – Should Ellie marry Woden? Why does she resist? Why is she being so stubborn? Could it be that she is indeed the prophesied one? You bet she is.

This is the first in a dystopian series about the Nephilim-ruled universe.

Their mission is to push back against the Roka, a militarized political insurrection, that has infested one of the UDF systems. Corwin and Tank have to give it their all as they shoot down enemy starfighters, bed beautiful women, and cross swords with fanatics in this rough and tumble intergalactic adventure.
