The Gray Market

A Space Opera Adventure Series

by V. J. Mikles

Danny desperately needed to get his crew home. But this homecoming was not what he expected.

Had he saved his brother’s life at the expense Amanda’s?

Quin was the home Danny had avoided for most of his adult life. He’d inherited money and status, but he wanted neither. He had no idea the source of his late mother’s power, but he was about to find out.

Because someone was trying to steal it.

Lois Ketlin would never have been more than a drug dealer if Oriana hadn’t fallen off the grid. She was shrewd, ruthless, and not afraid to sacrifice innocents in her pursuit of hybrid superpowers. And Amanda has powers worth killing for.

But before he can face her…

… he must face the truth of his family’s legacy.

It was time to go home.

You will love this sci-fi thriller, because making a change for good isn’t always legal, but it is worth it.

The New Dawn is a science fiction action adventure series. Humans have moved away from this solar system and colonized a new planet, Aquia, and that planet's moons: Terrana and Caldori. They think they’ve hit a gold mine – an uninhabited water planet – but something strange evolves the longer they stay. Humans developing super-human ability. Not great strength or power, just something to suggest that there once was life on this planet, and that life shifted to another plane of existence.

It’s too late to leave. The planet was devastated after a war with the Caldori settlement. The surviving cities retreated into protective domes, and have lived in relative isolation for the past four hundred years, resulting in divergent and unique cultures, some thriving, some dying, some dead and gone. As Oriana's crew limps home on their ancient, dilapidated cargo ship, they happen upon settlements and nomadic tribes, each with a survival story to tell. Each with their own superstitions about about their evolving abilities.

You will love this science fiction adventure series featuring found families, supernatural aliens, and hope for tomorrow. Get it now!
