On a voyage to a mysterious moon in the Alpha Centauri system, the UEA Centaurus meets with disaster. Only the quick thinking of the flight engineer, Rachel Terman, saves some of the crew. Crash-landing on the moon, trillions of kilometers from Earth, they struggle to carry out their mission and try to survive.
But nothing has prepared them for what they will face. False readings on sensors. Bizarre nightmares. Crew members vanishing.
Then, Rachel discovers a blue, glassy lake.
And everything changes. If the signal abides - will humankind fall?
Yet while exploring an old colony ship, they discover a message warning them of catastrophe.

Reyes and Thanata must learn the secrets of Phoa’s past, as well as his father’s whereabouts, if they hope to guarantee their future.

Though the Green has been temporarily pushed back, Reyes and Thanata face a new challenge in a deadly strain of coral biota that has spread over the region. It taints the planet’s rainfall, rivers, lakes—and all the wildlife that depends on them.
But there is a swarm-like signal inherent in the coral, which originates deep within Phoa’s biomorphic sea. Reyes and Thanata must rush to its source and stop the coral growth before it suffocates everything they have struggled to preserve—including the bond between them.

Phoa was terraformed by nanite swarms for Earth’s colonists to create a beautiful, habitable world. But the swarms evolved, overran the planet, and two centuries later, threaten every living thing remaining on it.
Reyes, a scientist from Phoa’s last colonial enclave, and Thanata, a bioengineered hunter from a rival tribe, must work together to halt the Green: the massive swarm that absorbs plants, animals—even entire cities. But if the unlikely pair hopes to survive the mutated wilds and the deadly Green, they'll have to learn to understand each other.

Jerr Manivo, a super soldier protecting the Dominion, can see a few seconds into the future. This gives him such battlefield supremacy that he’s been cloned by the thousands over many millennia.
But when his visions show the empire’s future destruction, his superiors mark him for termination. After escaping, he steals a warship and searches the galaxy for answers. What he discovers will not only bring the Dominion to its knees, but reveal who he once was—and who the empire’s victims hope he will be.
Wanderlust runs in Kivita Vondir’s blood. She dreamed of salvaging like her father when she was young, and now it’s her addiction, getting her through pit stops filled with cheap alcohol and cheaper companionship and distracting her from her broken heart.
Her latest contract to hunt down a fabled gemstone is exactly the kind of adventure she craves. But this job is more than meets the eye. For one thing, her duplicitous employer has hired rebel Sar Redryll—Kivita’s former lover—to stop her at any cost. For another, Kivita’s recovery of the relic unleashes in her powerful new abilities. Abilities that everyone in the Cetturo Arm—human, alien, and in-between—desperately wishes to control…
As she avoids a massive galactic manhunt, Kivita teams up with two unlikely allies: Sar and his enigmatic new partner. Only, as the gem’s mysteries are revealed and danger draws near, Kivita begins to wonder if her ex has truly changed, or if he’s just waiting for the right moment to betray her once again…
When a fortune teller named Sveta gives Tagen a Tarot card reading, she draws the Magician, a sign that he has an important role to play in the fate of Meridian—but drawing the forbidden card condemns them both to death for heresy before the High Priestess.

Even as they are pursued by the Clowns through clockwork spires and abandoned ruins, Tagen causes the memories of those around him to awaken, inspiring hope in the lost souls of Meridian. But he must recall his own memories to understand why he is there and how to escape, and facing his past may be the most daunting part of his journey.
