Mara’s Choice

Mara's Choice Bonus 1

After six years, Mara is back. She did it, escaped from prison. She’s free. Why does she feel so… empty? Reeling from the events of recent days, she has only three objectives in mind. Survive. Avoid capture. Stay out of trouble.

But with bounty hunters at every shady haunt, Kottura hot on her heels, and Ishali harping on about righteous quests and helping the galaxy… It’s going to be a lot harder than she anticipated.


This space opera adventure includes a brewing interstellar war, a corrupt government, and a former military woman who’s done with the galaxy and its shenanigans. She’ll get entangled anyway.

Warnings: Mild violence.

After “Mara’s Awakening,” I was more than ready to jump back in with Mara and Ishali as this odd couple continued their flight from prison. – Sahreth Bowden

I found the story to be enjoyable, and fast-paced. I’m still rooting for Mara and Ishali, who are both likable and very different. – Al Stone
