The Orinoco Event – Book 1 of Rivers of Orion

Fighting for a friend’s honor, squaring off against space pirates, cramming for the German mid-term…
It’s all in a day’s work for your not-so-average college student.

A THOUSAND YEARS IN THE FUTURE.
Humankind has joined the ranks of dozens of intelligent species spread throughout the Milky Way. The United Planets governs the cosmos, but it’s the Interstellar Police Force that enforces the law. When Earth’s most accomplished police contractor gets a lead on a rogue, superpowered college student, she rallies her crew to cross the galaxy and take him down.

BUT COSMIC POWER COURSES THROUGH HIS VEINS.
Action and adventure fly fast and fierce after she successfully captures him, as both captor and captive suddenly find themselves caught up in a battle between military and space pirate forces. He’s got superpowers, but he has no idea how to use them, and everything is on the line!

The Orinoco Event is first in the star-hopping adventure saga, Rivers of Orion. Driven by dynamic characters, fast-paced action, and gritty settings, it’s a story of unlikely friendship, courage, and superpowers.


A Vessel for Nimbus – Book 2 of Rivers of Orion

Blacktusk’s Buccaneers struck Nimbus down.
Now it’s up to the survivors to see if there’s anyone, anywhere in the galaxy, that can raise an AI from the dead.

NOT EVERYONE THRIVES IN SPACE.
Although they triumphed over the Milky Way’s most vicious space pirates, the crew has begun to fracture. With half of them seeking to form a bounty hunting team of their own, tensions rise as the bonds of friendship are strained. But Nimbus isn’t quite dead. A flicker of life remains.

HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL.
It’s a longshot, and it’ll require a trip to the outskirts of the galactic core, but the crew is willing to brave any peril for a chance to bring Nimbus back. Perhaps if they had known what truly awaited them in the belly of an abandoned space station, they may have tried another way. But there’s no retreating from some enemies, no matter how far you run.

A Vessel for Nimbus is the second book in the Rivers of Orion trilogy.


Eridani’s Gambit – Book 3 of Rivers of Orion

Three enemies have joined forces.
Eridani will need to outmaneuver a corrupt admiral, a team of superpowered killers, and a foe with the power to destroy planets.

THINGS WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.
Her peaceful life is upended when an old foe kidnaps Eridani and throws her into his starship’s brig. Thinking quickly, she works with an unexpected ally to gain the upper hand and discovers a trail of evidence that could save her brother and spell the undoing of the admiral. But it is hard to get to. She’ll have to summon reserves of courage she never knew she had.

IT HAS ALL LED UP TO THIS MOMENT.
As enemy forces move against the United Planets, Orinoco begins to master his superpowers. When he is chosen by a joint task force to participate in a desperate Hail Mary, he must find a way to best his foes while keeping his power in reserve. Meanwhile in the skies above, allied starships gather from all over the galaxy for what could well be Earth’s final hour.

Eridani’s Gambit is the third and final book in the Rivers of Orion trilogy.


Rivers of Orion – The Complete Trilogy

The Eternal Vanam can destroy planets…
He can stop it from happening, if only he could figure out how to use his powers.

FOR A MILLENNIUM, HUMANKIND HAS SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE GALAXY.
For a millennium, the nations of Earth shaped the policies of the United Planets and its rise to power. For a millennium, men and women with extraordinary abilities have appeared throughout the Milky Way in ever greater numbers, members of the mysterious Agency that has the technology to predict their every birth. Except for humankind, no other race in the galaxy can claim to have superpowers, and the Agency remains unchecked.

FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS, A HERO IS BORN.
On the other side of the galaxy, unknown even to him, a young college student holds the power to change the world. Earth’s top bounty hunter knows who he is, and she’s hot on his trail. But when an ancient enemy threatens the destruction of Earth, all but guaranteeing a new age of tyranny, the young hero and the bounty hunter will need to work together to save a starship crew, to save a friend, and ultimately to save themselves.

Filled with action, exploration, and derring-do, Rivers of Orion contains all three books in the star-hopping adventure series: The Orinoco Event, A Vessel for Nimbus, and Eridani’s Gambit. Driven by memorable characters, high-stakes action, and gritty settings, it’s a story about identity and the unequalled power of love.
