Synopsis

One of the most exciting new voices in space opera returns with the thrilling sequel to the Philip K. Dick nominated These Burning Stars, the explosive space opera debut that launched the dangerous cat-and-mouse quest for revenge against the backdrop of a galactic empire on the verge of collapse.The Jeveni are closer to freedom than ever before, a concept few could have imagined before Chono and Six became the faces of a revolution. But whether the Jeveni are revolutionaries or refugees depends on who you ask, and while many see their colony as the ultimate freedom from The Kindom, another group rises, growing more resentful by the day. But the Jeveni colony is fragile, protected only by a set of eleven keys disputed to the most trusted members within the council. Somehow, the Kindom has got it's hands on one, and the informant is closer than even Six could predict. Praise for These Burning Stars:'An exciting start from a fresh talent, offering emotional and political complexity plus plenty of interplanetary action' Kirkus (Starred Review)'Readers who love smart thrillers and explosive sf won't want to miss this book' Booklist (Starred Review) 'Plotted like a chess match, confident and surprising as Jacobs moves each piece thoughtfully across her board . . . If Jacobs' second entry is anything like the first, we'll have so much more to discover across her universe in the years to come' BookPage (Starred Review)
