Lost Colonies | Book 0
Emra had always believed that the Galileo Space Force and the Marines didn't mix. That was until Nizsm body flipped someone onto her tea.
Emra Telawani has worked her entire military career toward a single goal: commanding her own starship. Everything appeared on track until a miscreant Marine punched her commanding officer in the gut, sending her on a mad chase across the city of Nova Veritas to avenge a man she doesn't really like.
The Marine proves elusive, however, forcing her to break a few rules that land her in trouble with the very person she broke them for. Emra soon finds herself facing a Court Martial that could destroy her hard-earned career. In a cruel twist of fate, her best hope of redemption may lie with Nizsm, the miscreant Marine with ambitions of his own, who may be far too charming for her own good.
Project Xerxes is an optional prequel to the Lost Colonies science fiction series that explores the rich culture of Galileo: Britta's homeworld, and the birthplace of the Lost Colonies Alliance.
Lost Colonies | Book 1
10,000 years ago, humanity escaped extinction from the Destroyers by scattering across the galaxy. Now, two friends divided by a tragic accident must race down very different paths to subvert an insidious plot that could destroy the colonies and finish what their ancient enemy started.
Britta is heir to the Silverstar legacy and the youngest ambassador in Galilean history. Crystal is the smartest scientist in ten generations and is happy to live in her lab without talking to anyone—except Britta. Even diametrically opposite interests haven't managed to separate these childhood friends whose journey has led them to a space station orbiting Enigma, a planet with strange atmospheric properties that render their technology inoperable.
A tragic drop-ship disaster leaves Britta stranded on the planet’s surface, and Crystal fleeing for her life. Each possess a critical piece to diffusing a plot that may allow their ancient enemy to annihilate the Lost Colonies Alliance, from outside and within.
Equipped with only her prized hairpin, Britta must survive a harrowing trek across a primitive landscape to have any hope of helping the colonies, while Crystal must embark on a mad flight across the stars in a desperate mission to save her own colony, who are also hunting her for the alleged murder of Britta.
Timers on both sides are ticking. If either fails to reach their goal, it could spell the end for the entire human race.
