military space opera
At the edge of the universe lies the Divide. Veteran war hero Adequin Rake commands a dreadnaught-turned-watchtower stationed along the invisible boundary. Adequin never thought her decorated career would be rewarded with the opportunity to babysit delinquent soldiers billions of lightyears from civilization. But, here she is.
An even more tiresome challenge presents itself in the form of exiled prince Cavalon Mercer. Forced to enlist after a “familial disagreement” (which may have involved explosives), the disowned royal wants nothing more than to lie low and go unnoticed. But relentless snark and a complete lack of self-preservation instincts quickly land him in the crosshairs of anti-royalist soldiers.
Then the universe starts to collapse.
Stranded without access to faster-than-light travel or functioning comms, this motley crew must find a way to escape the Divide as it closes in on them and — if possible — stop it before the universe collapses completely.
FALLOUT meets FIGHT CLUB in this near-future, post-apocalyptic tale set in urban Chicago. After a deadly virus eliminates most of the population, a former school teacher and her Navy SEAL brother must fend off hostile factions while struggling to maintain their sanity as their minds are overrun by other people’s personalities and memories.
