Mara's Awakening Cover Img

The galaxy is against her. She faces life in prison for a crime she didn’t commit. But she won’t back down.

Tumultuous peace reigns. Resistance groups threaten the corrupt, barely functioning government. It could mean war. Why should she care?

Mara Keres. A former peacekeeper and trained warrior. She once led the most prestigious peacekeeping force. She now rots in the same prison where she banished people. This is her deathbed.

Her new cellmate offers to help her escape. It’s almost too good to be true. Will she emerge alive? Sometimes, facing your painful memories is worth the risk.

When an old friend comes with devastating news, she gets more than she bargained for. The old friend’s had enough. It’s time to set plans of galactic dominance into motion.

Enjoy gritty, fast-paced action-adventure, badass anti-heroes, and page-turning science fiction? You’ll love Mara’s Awakening.

Book 2 – 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.
