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?
Trestan Descaix, Napoleon’s best spy, seeks the Tenth’s hidden transcripts for Revolutionary partisans. The quest will send him across time, braving horrors from Borodino to Auschwitz, and ultimately to other worlds in a race to decide the course of humanity. Composers living and dead aid or hinder his efforts. Yet a mysterious competitor not only challenges him for the Tenth, but challenges the Enlightenment ideals he’s claimed to uphold—and his betrayals in doing so.
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…
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.
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. They are saved by Andromeda, who once led a failed rebellion and means to use Tagen's powers to overthrow 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.
