Escape Velocity - Prequel

Kylie Rhoads has fallen on hard times. Dishonorably discharged from the Silstrand Space Force, and unwilling to return home, she falls deep into debt, and is eventually sold to Maverick, leader of the most powerful crime syndicate in the Gedri system. 

She expects the remainder of her short life to be spent serving tables, and spending time in Maverick's bed, but it seems the crime lord has other plans for her. 


Close Proximity

When Tanis Richards sold her nanotech in the Silstrand Alliance, no one could have imagined the chain of events she would set in motion.

Gedri is one of the star systems in the Silstrand Alliance…sort of.

Controlled by several crime syndicates, most of what goes on in there is the opposite of legal. The Silstrand Alliance government stays out of the system as much as possible, only intervening when things really fall apart.

That makes it the right sort of place to disappear in, or to make a quick buck. 


Strike Vector

Kylie Rhoads risked life and limb to rescue a girl, thrusting the Dauntless and her crew in the middle of an interstellar tug of war. Now, running from Silstrand Alliance, the GFF, and the Black Crow, Kylie fights the very thing she set out to save.

An advanced nano-technology that is slowly changing her body and rewriting her brain--if Kylie survives the process. That nanotech, is priceless and some people Kylie travels with, would kill to sell her out.


Collision Course

The Gedri System is at war with Silstrand. As the Alliance reels, Scipio readies its forces, smelling blood in the water.

Meanwhile, Kylie awakens aboard a warship captained by her brother. Her family, the peaceful, low-tech Rhoads, have changed. Establishing a line of pure humans is all they care about. Her father, the preacher, is set to rain armageddon down on any system that opposes him. His first stop? 

Silstrand.

Impact Imminent

A spaceship captain's needs are simple: Pilot a ship, hang with your crew, and drink a lot of coffee. Oh, and avoid people trying to kill you.

When she and her crew land on a mining station to meet an arms dealer with information about her warmongering brother, that last one is out the window.

Three out of four isn't too bad for Kylie Rhoads.

Turns out, a lot of people want her dead and off the station, but she won't leave without finding out who put her would-be-assassin up to the task.

Critical Inertia

Rhoads vs Rhoads. It's showdown time!

On a stolen freighter, Kylie and Ricket—plus one curmudgeonly stowaway—have crossed the Velorum Rift and are within striking distance of the Revolution Fleet. Kylie's target is her brother, if she can reach him first, she might just have a chance to save him before destruction rains on them all.

But the Orion Guard is waiting, and there are more players in the game than she'd imagined. 

Deep in the Fringe, when your enemy is family, and your allies are out to get him, things get complicated.

Terminal Velocity

A standoff. A rouse. An unlikely alliance no one wants.

The past comes back to confront Captain Kylie Rhoads—literally. Escape or die trying, her normal solution—won’t work this time as the truth is revealed. As she answers for her own deceptions, she and the crew of the Barbaric Queen prepare to fly again.

With an unlikely passenger.

It could be their final mission for the ISF if things go sideways and in Kylie’s experience, they always go sideways.
