The Last Imperator

The Last Imperator (The Rebirth Saga Book 2) by [M. L. Tishner]

How much will she sacrifice for peace?After six months of campaigning, Rei and the other Volocio have barely convinced half the star cluster to vote for the Federation. Activist groups from all sides are calling for a war Rei is destined to declare, but she won’t do it. While she wants to kill the Dominion Sovereign – Anekris Praymer – she wants to destroy him herself. She can channel lightning – she is the god queen – she doesn’t need more than that and the whole star cluster doesn’t need to go to war for it.But tensions are rising beyond both their control and when both Rei and Anekris are trapped together after an attack – they strike up an uneasy alliance.As time progresses, Rei finds herself wondering – will they remain enemies or will they join together and finally unite the Federation and Dominion?

And she’s not the only one! Past author spotlight guest, Charles E. Gannon has been publishing up a storm!

At the End of the Journey

It was supposed to be fun. Six teenagers and their British captain aboard the ketch Crosscurrent Voyager, headed on a senior year summer cruise to excitement and adventure. Then the world as they knew it ended.

Book 9 in John Ringo’s Black Tide Rising series.

Over in the Caine Riordan series:

Taken from their planet and their century, they are…the Lost Soldiers.

Sundown – with Kacey Ezell

It’s been six months since the daring raid that destroyed the makeshift transmitter which would have summoned the satraps’ vastly superior off-world allies. The Lost Soldiers followed up that victory by scratching out a permanent base on R’Bak and spearheading the further attacks of their indigenous allies throughout the region. But the continued support, cooperation, and—above all—trust of the space-dwelling SpinDogs will be required if the Lost Soldiers are to maintain and expand their area of operations.

Desperado – with Kevin Ikenberry

The Sear, a time of intense radiation and heat, is coming to R’Bak. Among local tribes and townspeople alike, the rush is on to secure the provisions necessary to endure the seven years when the binary suns of the 55 Tauri system make their closest approach. In the midst of this uncertainty, Colonel Murphy has decided the time has come to secure the information, weapons, and human capital necessary for his upcoming orbital operations, and he once again has to send the Lawless into harm’s way.

and!

Shadows – with William Alan Webb

Colonel Murphy has decided the time has come to secure the information, weapons, and human capital necessary to mount orbital operations capable of defeating the invaders from Kulsis. To strengthen the Lost Soldiers’ planetside position, he sent Major Bo Moorefield’s mostly indig force to seize Imsurmik, one of the major J’Stull power centers in the Ashbands of R’Bak’s Hamain wastelands. But gaining control of the fortified town of twenty thousand is not the most crucial part of the mission.


This week, I got 2 books in the mail! The lovely “The Nature of Witches” by Rachel Griffin that I pre-ordered ages ago. And my own paperback copy of Dad’s debut novel! So proud of him!
