All hell is breaking loose in the edge-of-your-seat follow-up to Havoc and Perdition from New York Times bestselling author Ann Aguirreโ€ฆ

The prison ship Perdition has become a post-battle charnel house with only a handful of Dredโ€™s soldiers still standing and now being hunted by Silenceโ€™s trained tongueless assassins. Forging an uneasy alliance with mercenary commander Vostโ€”who is their only chance at escapeโ€”the Dread Queen will do whatever it takes to end her life sentence on Perdition and keep the survivors alive long enough to cobble together a transport capable of getting them off station.

If Dred and her crew can win the deadly game of cat and mouse, the payoff is not only life but freedomโ€”a prize sweeter than their wildest dreams. Yet the sadistic Silence would rather destroy Perdition than let a single soul slip from her graspโ€ฆ

Excerpt:
They didnโ€™t speak until they had put a fair amount of distance behind them, then Dred signaled her desire to pause by tapping his ankle. He couldnโ€™t turn fully because the ducts had narrowed, but he glanced over his shoulder.
โ€œYou all right?โ€
โ€œJust . . . spooked.โ€ The somber tone told him he hadnโ€™t been alone in what he felt, watching those crazy, tongue-less bastards.
โ€œItโ€™s different now,โ€ he said.
โ€œWith what she did to Queensland . . . she seems larger than life. Iโ€™ve been afraid before, but . . . not quite like this.โ€
The words were barely a whisper, and they roused an answering prickle of gooseflesh on his arms.
โ€œI know. Thereโ€™s run-of-the-mill evil, like Priest and Mungo. And then thereโ€™s Silence.โ€
โ€œItโ€™s like she can do worse than kill me. Rationally, I know thatโ€™s not trueโ€”โ€
โ€œBut itโ€™s uncanny the way sheโ€™s last one still standing, moving through the carnage.โ€ He didnโ€™t say it out loud, but he thought, *Like Death itself. *
Dred nodded. โ€œIโ€™m still here, too, but Iโ€™m not the Dread Queen anymore.โ€
โ€œIf itโ€™s any consolation, I donโ€™t miss her.โ€
โ€œMe either,โ€ she whispered.
There was no space to touch her as he wanted to, and it wasnโ€™t the time anyway, so Jael continued on. They slid out of the ducts near the closet, but when he opened it, there were no droids plugged in. He choked out a curse. It was impossible to predict when a bot would come back, and it was dangerous to wait out in the open. They desperately needed some intel about how many men Silence had left, how often they patrolled, and where, but with manpower as scarce as it had become on their end, recon had to wait.
โ€œBack up?โ€ Dred whispered.
He nodded. This time, they found a way in that gave them vantage over their target, so theyโ€™d know when a bot returned. Heโ€™d just finished fitting the vent panel in place behind them when he heard the familiar, shuffling sound of Silenceโ€™s men. From her expression, Dred registered it, too, and she practically stopped breathing. The fact that her killers were roving freely must signify that she believed herself the undisputed ruler of Perdition.

When they rounded the corner and came into sight, he stifled a surprised sound. This group was huge, compared to the usual numbers, ten this time, and horror jolted through him like lightning when he realized they were carried a human-sized bundle. Theyโ€™d wrapped their captive in dark fabric, so he couldnโ€™t tell anything about the person, but the worst part was, he or she was still moving, thrashing against his bonds.

*Who is that? And why the hell would Silence want someone taken alive? *

“Sirantha Jax fans may be intrigued to see what befell Jael after his ill-considered actions there, and new lead Dred is a strong linchpin for a promising new series.” โ€” Publishers Weekly

“Spectacularly and spell-bindingly perfect with high octane action that keeps you on the edge of your seat and a romance that is surprisingly sweet and tender in a harsh and unforiving setting…This is honestly one of the best SF romance series I have read.” โ€” Book Pushers
