Meet Hail: captain, gunrunner, fugitive

Quick, sarcastic, and lethal, Hailimi Bristol doesn’t suffer fools gladly. She has made a name for herself in the galaxy for everything except what she was born to do: rule the Indranan empire. That is, until two Trackers drag her back to her home planet to take her rightful place as the only remaining heir.

But trading her ship for a palace has more dangers than Hail could have anticipated. Caught in a web of plots and assassination attempts, Hail can’t do the one thing she did twenty years ago—run away. She’ll have to figure out how her mother became so ill and who murdered her sisters if she wants to survive.

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “This debut ranks among the best political sf novels in years, largely because of the indomitable, prickly Hail. The secondary characters…are fascinating as well. The matriarchal structure of the Indranan Empire leads to some interesting gender dynamics, and the cultural influences being largely from India make for a welcome change. This fast-paced, twisty space opera borrows the political machinations from fantasies such as George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones and ­Katherine Addison’s The Goblin ­Emperor.

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Promising science-fiction series…for fans of stories with plenty of action and political maneuvering.”
