A NEW START—OR AN OLD CALLING?
Talia Merritt, a former military sniper once known as Death’s Handmaiden, is a woman haunted by her past. Her cybernetic arm and the implant that allows her to control it serve as a constant reminder of what she’s lost. But Talia is hoping to leave her past and her reputation behind and start anew on the colony world of Gōruden, a hardscrabble planet of frontier-minded people seeking a better life. And she’s finally earned enough to start making that dream come true.
But soon, Talia finds herself thrust into the start of another conflict. Talia desperately wants to stay out of it, but she may not have that luxury.
With the fate of a planet and her own peace of mind hanging in the balance, Talia must decide whether or not to once again take up the mantle of Death’s Handmaiden.
Hard science fiction with a touch of frontier justice!
“A new space western which combines hard science fiction with frontier action. Fans of Firefly will love this kick-ass female protagonist.”
