Summary: Life after the Crash. Over a century after the end of the Earth, life goes on in Redemption, the sole remaining Lunar colony, and possibly the last outpost of humankind in the Solar System. But with an existential threat burrowing its way into the Moon's core, humanity must recolonize the homeworld. Twenty brave dropnauts set off on a mission to explore the empty planet. Four of them—Rai, Hera, Ghost and Tien—have trained for two-and-a-half years for the Return. They're bound for Martinez Base, just outside the Old Earth city of San Francisco. But what awaits them there will turn their assumptions upside down—and in the process, either save or destroy what's left of humanity.

On planet Vastire, worth is set by the sins of one's ancestors. Good families rise to the elite and the wicked fall into poverty. Unfortunately for sixteen-year-old Darynn Mark, his father incited a revolution. Now, Darynn scrounges his way through life in the slums. When Vastire is surrounded by an embargo, it gets even harder to survive. That all changes when an alien ship slips through the embargo, seeking Darynn with an offer: finish the revolution and the embargo ends. He might have a chance thanks to mysterious magic powers, and his two companions: clairvoyant crush Fyra and soldierly alien Kaylaa. Cutthroat killers, mystical beasts, Vampires, power-hungry priests and lords, and self-serving spies stand in their way.

Summary: Ancient secrets may be the way forward… Tarans have reached a tentative peace with the Erebus. While politicians on Tararia address the political ramifications of the new alliance, Jason and the rest of the TSS refocus their efforts on defense. The Erebus are after something. It’s unclear what, but Jason is convinced they can’t be trusted. The Aesir’s data archive may hold the key to an effective defense, except keeping anything from the Erebus and their seemingly omnipotent abilities will put the fragile Taran Empire in even greater danger. Fearing for the Empire’s security, the TSS implements a covert plan to upgrade the fortifications across the Taran worlds using ancient technology that has long been buried. Only, those secrets were locked away for a reason, and reopening the archives will initiate a conflict no one is prepared to fight. Empire Uprising is the second installment of the Taran Empire Saga set in the Cadicle Universe, perfect for fans of epic sci-fi featuring sprawling galactic empires, drama, intrigue, and psionic abilities.

Summary: Starship lost in eternity... Ghost ship Impris, lost during the War of a Thousand Suns, is the stuff of legend. Her very name conjures the perils of interstellar travel. But no mere legend, she is real—glimpsed on occasion in the hyperdimensional Flux, and then gone. Her passengers and crew live on in a strange limbo, their fate hopelessly caught up in quantum defects in space-time, interstellar piracy, and galactic coverup. To the pirates of Golen Space, she is a perfect lure, drawing passing ships to their doom. Many innocent star riggers have been captured in such raids and forced to pilot for the murderous pirates. One such rigger, Renwald Legroeder, makes a daring escape and flees to the presumed safety of the Centrist Worlds. But instead of finding asylum, he is framed for treason. Something is terribly wrong in the Guild of Riggers and the government that should be protecting him. To clear his name--and perhaps to avert a disastrous war between worlds—he must escape a second time, and partner with the amphibious Narseil to return to the Deep Flux and search for the lost Impris. Legroeder's journey takes him back into the heart of raider territory, where he encounters a bewildering array of motives, conspiracies, and even deep-cyber romance. Forging friendships and finding love in the unlikeliest of places, Legroeder must nevertheless put his life on the line to protect the innocent, and preserve a shaky interstellar peace. A finalist for the Nebula Award, Eternity's End stands as a highlight of the Star Rigger saga, and one of Jeffrey A. Carver's most memorable novels. Can be read as a stand-alone book, or as part of the future history. PRAISE FOR ETERNITY'S END: "True love, cognitive dissonance, divisions among the enemy, ambitious schemes, another mission—this one deeper than anyone has ever gone before into the substrata of the Flux—and a final resolution that leaves the reader both breathless and satisfied." —Analog "You don't want to wait for the paperback." —Science Fiction Chronicle "A mesmerizing tale of human perseverance and courage under pressure that updates the legend of the Flying Dutchman." —Library Journal "Carver never runs out of new plot twists to keep the reader coming back for more." —The Washington Post
