STARSHINE (Book One)
SPACE IS VAST AND UNTAMED, AND IT HOLDS MANY SECRETS. Now two individuals from opposite ends of settled space are on a collision course with the darkest of those secrets, even as the world threatens to explode around them.
The year is 2322. Humanity has expanded into the stars, inhabiting over 100 worlds. Though thriving as never before, Earth struggles to retain authority over far-flung planets & free-wheeling corporations while an uneasy armistice with a breakaway federation hangs by a thread as the former rebels rise in wealth and power.
Alexis Solovy is Earth Alliance royalty, her father a fallen war hero & her mother an influential military leader. But she seeks only the freedom of space & has made a fortune by reading the patterns in the chaos to discover the hidden wonders of the stars.
Nothing about her latest objective suggests the secret it conceals will turn her life-not to mention the entire galaxy-upside down. But a chance encounter with a mysterious spy leads to a discovery which will thrust Alex into the middle of a galactic power struggle & a sinister conspiracy, whether she likes it or not.

This book collects together a series of stories that tell the full tale of her Metagens war. As such it is a good choice for anyone who wants to read the stories in an uninterrupted fashion
Her characters are well developed, interesting, and very relatable. Recommended
A very enjoyable and entertaining read in the style of Heinlein, Asimov, etc! A gripping tale that makes it hard to put down.
A space adventure in the best traditions of science fiction. Well written, well executed, and a joy to read. Since first reading Heinlein’s “Have Space Suit, Will Travel” fifty years ago, I’ve been searching for those stories that have that elusive perfect blend of believable science, engaging plot, compelling characters, and a dash of fun. This is one of them.
