Synopses & Reviews
The multi-species crew of the Veracity
are enjoying some well-deserved R&R after informing the galaxy about spread of the time-bending Messiah drug. Now that the galaxy has been saved again, the crew begin to see each other in a new light.
Unfortunately, in the Veracitys wake lie a string of crimes and someone has got to pay. Former assassin Raena Zacari is hauled back to the weapons-free pleasure planet Kai to answer charges of kidnapping, murder, and the theft of an Imperial-era diplomatic transport: the Veracity itself.
In the meantime, something is moving in the undersea city Raena destroyed on the Thallian homeworld. Has the worst mass-murderer the galaxy has ever known been cloned back from the dead? Can the Veracitys crew lay the ghosts to rest without Raenas lethal skills?
No More Heroes mixes courtroom science fiction with sweeping space opera that features aliens, androids, drug dealers, journalists, and free-running media hackers. Following The Dangerous Type and Kill By Numbers, No More Heroes is the final book in Loren Rhoadss epic trilogy.
Praise for the In the Wake of the Templars Series
This military flavored space opera is sure to please David Weber and Joel Shepherd fans.”
Dark and brutal. . . well-choreographed action. . . an SF trilogy that seems determined to bring the style of grimdark fantasy to space opera.”
Completely lives up to its 'adventurous space opera' billing, complete with aliens, clones, double-crosses, sacrifices, daring rescues, and galaxy-spanning action. . . one of the more satisfying conclusions I've come across in years.”
Beauty in Ruins
The Dangerous Type is pure pulp. . .and damn it if it doesnt work well in that category.”
Fantasy Review Barn
The perfect science fiction novel to give to your friend who loves to read hot and heavy romances. . .In fact, things got so steamy in this novel I began to feel dirty just from reading it.”
