New people, old friends, same old evil...with a twist .
Only a fool would chase after a cursed artifact through an abandoned city overrun by giant spiders.
A Lone Planet. One Complex.
Tom thought he'd left the war behind, not that it would follow him home. Nobody warned him he'd need to serve one more mission, or that the people calling him to duty would be a grizzled veteran and his beautiful, and quirky, daughter.
Grishna's burning mission in life is to avenge her family. To carve her clan's name into the hide of the dragon that destroyed all but her. To that end she will do anything and everything, so long as breath fills her lungs and she has strength enough to swing a weapon. When the Blades of Leander happen upon her they must decide, is the enemy of my enemy a friend?
The universe is a cold, dark, and inhospitable place. To survive a species must overcome hardship and long odds. Competition for resources is merciless and if the colonists want to succeed, they need to convince an alien world to share.
Dawn Vincent had goals and a plan for her life. She delivered babies for a living and dreamed of one day having some of her own with her soon-to-be husband. That changed the day fire rained down from the sky.
Over a year later, with the remnants of humanity scrambling to survive, Dawn established herself as a doctor who spent more time fixing bullet wounds than runny noses. Buried in her work to avoid the painful memories of her lost fiancé, Dawn's only reprieve from madness comes from time spent with a reckless woman who serves as a soldier.
Angie tries to help Dawn out of her shell and back into life and love until she herself is lost on a mission. Unable to cope with another loss, Dawn finds strength from within and refuses to take no for an answer. She wrestles control of the band of survivors and reminds them all of what it means to be human and how very valuable even a single life can be.
