WELCOME TO HELL

 

The prison ship Perdition, a floating city where the Conglomerates most dangerous criminals are confined for life, orbits endlessly around a barren asteroid. 

 

Life inside is even more bleak. Hailed as the Dread Queen, inmate Dresdemona “Dred” Devos controls one of Perditions six territories, bordered on both sides by would-be kings eager to challenge her claim. Keeping them at bay requires constant vigilance, as well as a steady influx of new recruits to replace the fallen. Survival is a constant battle, and death is the only escape.

 

Of the newest convicts, only one is worth Dreds attention. The mercenary Jael, with his deadly gaze and attitude, may be the most dangerous criminal onboard. His combat skill could give her the edge she needs, if he doesn't betray her first. Unfortunately, that's what he does best. Winning Jaels allegiance will be a challenge, but failure could be worse than death…

FIRST IN A NEW SERIES!

Synopsis:

Regret nothing.

Sirantha Jax has the J-gene, which permits her to “jump” faster-than-light ships through grimspace. She loves nothing more than that rush, but the star roads have to wait…

Her final mission takes her to La’heng, a planet subjugated during first contact. Since then, the La’hengrin homeworld has been occupied by foreign conquerors.

All that’s about to change.

Now, as part of a grassroots resistance, Jax means to liberate the La’hengrin. But political intrigue and guerrilla warfare are new to her, and this will be the most dangerous game she’s ever played—spies and conspiracies, a war of weapons and hearts, and not everyone is guaranteed to make it out alive...

Synopsis:

Broke and unemployed, aJumpera Sirantha Jax accepts a diplomatic mission for the governmenta only to find herself up against Syndicate criminals, man-eating aliens, and her own grimspaceweakened body.
