Velocity Weapon

The Protectorate: Book 1

Megan E. O'Keefe

The last thing Sanda remembers is her gunship exploding.

She expected to be recovered by salvage-medics and to awaken in friendly hands, patched-up and ready to rejoin the fight. Instead she wakes up 230 years later, on a deserted enemy starship called The Light of Berossus - or, as he prefers to call himself, 'Bero'.

Bero tells Sanda the war is lost. That the entire star system is dead.

But is that the full story? After all, in the vastness of space, anything is possible.

Steal the Sky

The Scorched Continent: Book 1

Megan E. O'Keefe

Detan Honding, a wanted conman of noble birth and ignoble tongue, has found himself in the oasis city of Aransa. He and his trusted companion Tibs may have pulled off one too many cons against the city's elite and need to make a quick escape. They set their sights on their biggest heist yet -- the gorgeous airship of the exiled commodore Thratia.

But in the middle of his scheme, a face changer known as a doppel starts murdering key members of Aransa's government. The sudden paranoia makes Detan's plans of stealing Thratia's ship that much harder. And with this sudden power vacuum, Thratia can solidify her power and wreak havoc against the Empire. But the doppel isn't working for Thratia and has her own intentions. Did Detan accidentally walk into a revolution and a crusade? He has to be careful -- there's a reason most people think he's dead. And if his dangerous secret gets revealed, he has a lot more to worry about than a stolen airship.

Break the Chains

The Scorched Continent: Book 2

Megan E. O'Keefe

A year has passed since Detan set the skies above Aransa on fire, and the armies of Aransa's new dictator Thratia are preparing to knock on the door of his aunt's city, Hond Steading...

As the city that produces the most selium--that precious gas that elevates airships and powers strange magic--Hond Steading is a jewel worth stealing. To shore up the city's defenses, Detan promises his aunt that he'll recover Nouli, the infamous engineer who built the century gates that protect the imperial capital of Valathea. But Nouli is imprisoned on the Remnant Isles, an impervious island prison run by the empire, and it's Detan's fault.

Detan doesn't dare approach Nouli himself, so his companions volunteer to get themselves locked up to make contact with Nouli and convince him to help. Now Detan has to break them all out of prison, and he's going to need the help of a half-mad doppel to do it.

Inherit the Flame

The Scorched Continent: Book 3

Megan E. O'Keefe

After Detan retrieves the renowned engineer Nouli from the clutches of the empire, he returns his aunt's city to find it under siege by Thratia's army. With Nouli's help, they turn back the tide -- until imperial forces show up, prepared to hammer Thratia's army against the anvil of the city's walls. Worse yet, the imperial advance is aided by an elite force of deviant magic users.

His aunt is forced to forge an uneasy alliance with Thratia to keep the city from falling back under imperial control--but Detan's wary. While Thratia and his aunt bring their forces to bear against the imperial threat, Detan puts his own plans into motion, scheming to ensure that when the final blow is dealt, Thratia and her army find themselves on the other side of the city's walls.
