by D.M. Pruden
Dark terrors await on the frontier of space…
When disgraced young officer Hayden Kaine is exiled to an outdated military starship stationed on the fringes of the galaxy, his biggest worry is how he can rescue his career. But after the vessel is trapped in a quarantined star system, survival becomes his only concern.
With the crippled ship hunted by a relentless enemy, Kaine unexpectedly finds himself thrust into the captain’s seat; a role for which he is not ready, and which most of the surviving crew do not accept.
While the enemy amasses an invasion force that will overwhelm the unsuspecting Confederation, Kaine must stave off a mutiny long enough to warn Earth of the danger. If he fails, the empire will fall and humanity will be doomed to extinction by a foe whose existence defies the laws of physics.
If you love the science fiction works of Heinlein, Clarke or Asimov, try D.M. Pruden’s rousing space opera adventure, Kaine’s Sanction, the first book in the Shattered Empire series.

Forced into exile, Katrijn was tasked with a mission sent to her by her father from beyond the grave: free the people of the Andlios Republic. Her biggest hurdle?

Then, it’s dealing with her brother…
The Mad Emperor himself.

Dead of Winter
by Antoinette McCormick
Can a dead woman’s memories solve her murder?
Ten years ago, someone brutally murdered Amara’s twin sister, Nisha. No one ever found her killer. No one ever found any pertinent evidence at all. The loss devastated her family and drove her father to suicide. Now, through the controversial new technology of memory reconsolidation, Amara hopes to unmask her sister’s killer by having Nisha’s last memories implanted in her mind.
What she doesn’t know is that Nisha’s killer, still at large and closer than she thinks, might be something more than human.
Something capable of manipulating time and memory…
Something with an appetite for flesh and blood!

Teuta was the Night Maiden’s guardian and sister in arms. She protected her from an assassin’s hands, but could not shield her from the betrayal by the very king that she fought to put on the throne. And she would have gladly traded places with her when she made the ultimate sacrifice to end the generations-long war against Fiorian invaders.
Now Teuta must find a way to move on with her life and carry the burden of a life full of scars. But the arrival of a pretender threatens to open old wounds and throw the kingdom of Orloins into chaos.
