As the Khayyami fleet races towards Gan-De, General Cynwrig and her forces capture Asala and Niko. With no cards left to play, Asala and Soraya must make impossible choices. But Uzochi Ryouta still has tricks up her sleeve, and less care for the lives at stake…
Asala and Niko are trapped on the surface of Gan-De, desperate to get themselves – or at least the vital information they carry – off-planet. But they haven’t been careful enough. General Cynwrig has started to put together the pieces…
The secret to human survival is laid bare as Asala and Niko confront the underground aboard Camp Ghala. But who will be saved?
For the second time in her life, Asala flees Hypatia on a spacefaring death trap. Armed with new information that changes everything about The Vela‘s disappearance, she and Niko find themselves trapped in a Gandesian refugee camp with no way to get the word out – and no-one to trust but each other.
Asala and Niko have made it to Hypatia – but can they survive the death-cold and find out what happened to The Vela?
The solar system is dying. A ship of refugees has disappeared en route from Eratos to Khayyam. And a hardbitten mercenary – once a refugee herself – together with the privileged child of an Inner System president are the odd couple tasked with bringing The Vela safely home…
There’s a new series about to start over at Serial Box, and oh my word I’m so excited I could dance (I don’t dance. Ever). A line-up of the best new SF authors writing political space opera? Can I get a HELL YES? And it gets better – they let me have a sneak peek, so I can give you the lowdown on the first episode…
The Mertikan empire grows ever stronger, Rumika’s industrial prowess is bringing it new influence, and Quloo is literally sinking into the Mists. Welcome to a world of islands floating in the sky, where airships carry trade and war and magic is cast by swordcraft.
I’ve fallen behind on Tremontaine, so it’s time to quickly catch up! In Into the Woods, a party of nobles celebrate midwinter at Diane’s hunting lodge in the woods, but the Land calls for blood during the White Days and someone will have to pay the price. Behind the Mask sees Kaab closing in on the rixinkun’s secrets, whilst Rafe suffers a disappointment. Will Micah ever master the peculiar game of Social Graces?
Rafe and Reza are men about town, while Kaab gains a startling insight into the Duchess and hunts down her wayward spy. We’re coming up to mid-season and inter-relationships are starting to get complicated, with hints of unexpected alliances as new friendships develop.
This week’s episode is a warning to guard our hearts. Diane’s former mantra – attachment is a weakness – may come back to haunt all our beloved characters. Their affections and their assumptions make them vulnerable. I AM WORRIED ABOUT EVERYONE, OKAY?
While Riverside revels in being released from its siege (and Tess tries to keep it from revelling in ways that would see the siege reinstated), the City – and Rafe – prepare to party through the Night of the Flames. But some fires have a sadder purpose, as the Kinwiinik release Ixsaabim’s spirit to rejoin her ancestors at last. How can Kaab satisfy everyone who is now watching her?
In Riverside, the only true loyalty is to Riverside. Tess and the Salamander give Shade an impossible choice in an attempt to end the stalemate. Meanwhile, Rafe’s plans for his school begin to take shape, while Kaab continues to grow into her new role.
Riverside is under attack by the City Guard, locked onto its island, cut off from the rest of the City until it is prepared to hand over the murderous Shade. And a frustrated swordsman is trapped there too, adding to the blood soaking its streets. Can Tess tame the heart-broken Reza? Can either find a way to break the siege?
It’s autumn at last, which means it’s time to return to the intoxicating world of Riverside and the City. Grab your chocolate, grab your loved one – with three women of immense character preparing to grasp power for themselves at last, can they all realise their ambitions? Or will they thwart one another’s dreams? That’s right folks, it’s Tremontaine time!
