The Dark Angels – a notorious band of brigands turned folk heroes who disbanded a decade ago – are all that stands between humanity and disaster. Reunited with their ship, The Ion Raider, Drake, Leesa, Jen and their fellow Angels must prevent a resurrected Elder, last of a long dead alien race from reclaiming the scientific marvels of his people.
The resurrected alien, Mudball, has discovered the whereabouts of the ultimate Elder cache, long considered to be a myth. Supported by an outlawed military regiment and a star-spanning criminal organisation, Mudball is intent on using the scientific marvels stored there to establish itself as God over all of humankind.
Can one ship of reluctant heroes hope to stop them? The Dark Angels know they have little choice but to try.
"Dark Angels Rising is a spirited space opera that combines all the required ingredients of the sub-genre: epic space battles, futuristic weaponry, scheming armies and enigmatic aliens." - The Guardian
"What do you get when you cross the epic scope of a space opera with the close-knit personality-driven narrative of a heist? Dark Angels Rising synthesises the best of both genres... Whether you enjoy science fiction, superheroic teams or the heist formula, this novel is genuine fun in every single aspect." - Aurealis
