SCi-Fi Indie Books of the Week

I like to promote my fellow indie authors however I can. It’s a struggle to make a living as a self-publisher, and there are a ton of great works in the digital ether that have yet to be “discovered.” It might be one of these! If you missed the last newsletter, you can still find most of the books below!

Origin of Pietas

By Kayelle Allen
Teen & Young Adult Space Opera
Teen & Young Adult Science Fiction eBooks
Space Opera Science Fiction (Kindle Store)

With utter dismay, Pietas learns the only way he can escape is to trust a lowly human slave – a man he calls Six, a fearsome Ghost Corp special operations soldier trained to kill all Ultras on sight.  As the two enemies travel together in a tube designed to prevent the Immortal leader from using his psychic abilities, they form an uncomfortable and unlikely friendship for mutual benefit, despite their respective races’ 2,000 year history of oppression, war and imprisonment as slaves.

If you like character-based military science fiction set in humanity’s far future, the Bringer of Chaos science fiction series is for you. The epic saga begins with Origin of Pietas and continues with Forged in Fire.

Her true love was taken by bounty hunters, and she’ll travel to the heart of a volcano to get him back.

Their wedding was the first of its kind: A union between an Elf and a Faun. Their honeymoon will turn out to be just as unique.

Instead of a week of wedded bliss, Chrysalis finds herself racing across this kingdom and the next in pursuit of the thugs who took Chass from her.

Along the way she will encounter dinosaurs, dragons, and ancient spirits. She will even team up with an eclectic group of adventurers to do a little dungeon diving.

Ancient Dwarven temples are a strange place for a Faun, but these dusty old relics may just hold the key to bringing her husband home safe and sound.
