Exin Ex Machina Now Available Everywhere
Did you tune out all the Exin Ex Machina chatter once you learned you couldn't read it yet? Now suddenly curious what the fuss is about? I hope so. I'll let readers fill you in:
“Techno space opera with romance and lasers - what more could you want?”
“A game of rebels, politicians, cops, criminals and black markets - a big twisty web of motivations and intrigue.”
“Puts a whole new spin on the ‘ noir’ concept - even the combat has a rebellious-outlaw flare to it.”
“Great characters, cool-ass tech, wonderful plot-lines that keep the reader wanting more, and twists and turns that you don't quite expect.”
Read about the background of Asterion Noir and how it relates to Aurora Rhapsody in my blog post, “Introducing Asterion Noir.” And for everyone who's all caught up and waiting for more, know that Asterion Noir Book 2 is now quite far along - expect a cover and title reveal and release date announcement next month!
When man and machine are one and the same, there are many crimes but only one sin: psyche-wipe. The secrets it has buried could lead to a civilization's salvation, or to its doom.
The Asterion Dominion is at peace with its neighbors and itself. Its citizens enjoy great freedoms and all the luxuries their biosynthetic minds can imagine, design and create. But beneath the idyllic veneer, something is going wrong. People are going wrong, driven to commit inexplicable crimes without motive or purpose. And once imprisoned for those crimes, they simply vanish.
Psyche-wiped and dumped in an alley 5 years ago, awakened into a culture where ancestral memories stretch back for millennia, Nika Tescarav's past is a blank canvas. But if whoever erased her did so in the hope of silencing her, they should have tried harder.
Someone must speak for the lost. Someone must uncover how and why they became lost. Someone must find the lost.
Nika is that someone.
700,000 years ago, the Asterions fled persecution for their pro-synthetic beliefs. In the safe harbor of a distant galaxy, they have evolved into a true biosynthetic race and built a thriving society upon the pillars of personal autonomy, mutual respect and boundless innovation.
Now that society is fracturing at the seams. Beneath lies built upon lies, the shocking truth as to why threatens the future of not merely the Asterions, but all life in the universe.
Cyberpunk and space opera collide in a thrilling new trilogy from the author of the epic Aurora Rhapsody space opera saga. Enter a world of technological wonders, exotic alien life, enthralling characters, captivating worlds—and a terrifying evil lurking in the void that will shatter it all.
