The HRMS Deception, a colony ship which was discovered in Gaulphine space amid a complex web of intrigue (see the novel Armada’s Disciple) is now operating as the second gateway from human space, to the rest of the Federated Species Council territories.
Operating as the security chief on board, George, former bounty hunter, must call on the help of our heroes, Starlight Hodgens, captain of the Phoenix, and her crew, as well as Shae Jarzi, now the Deputy head of the FSC’s Federation Investigation Unit.
Something is not right in deep space, and George calls on his friends to help him find out what is really going on. Why are citizens of Deception disappearing? Why are so many of them falling prey to a strange psychosis? And what is the connection between the victims, and the mysterious blue moss that has been found in all their homes?
Just when you thought it was safe to venture out into the furthest reaches of human space, there comes a new horror, waiting in the colony ship of the ancients…
Coming some time this decade…
This book is in the planning phase only, and will likely be written after the completion of the first trilogy in The Cinder Chronicles.
Blues of Deception will complete a trilogy of Starlight books, which was begun with Starlight, and continued with Armada’s Disciple. Someday they may eventually be released as an omnibus, but that is a decision for some years down the track.
On release of Blues of Deception, the full trilogy will likely be released in new covers with branding as “The Starlight Trilogy”.
