ARC’s Terry McMillan and Space Empire Princess
June 7, 2016
McMillan’s is out today and we have a nice holds queue going. I have the ARC if of interest.
K. B. Wagers book is a politically intriguing space opera featuring a runaway heiress of a far-future, female-dominated empire loosely based on Indian culture, who must turn from her gunrunner ways to take her place on the Indranan throne after all her older sisters get assassinated. It’s an original, fun, and feminist take on a Dune sort of theme, complete with treachery around every corner. Best of all it’s just the start of a series. This one comes out in August and I also have its ARC.
Comment to claim.

Meet Hail: Captain. Gunrunner. Fugitive.
Quick, sarcastic, and lethal, Hailimi Bristol doesn’t suffer fools gladly. She has made a name for herself in the galaxy for everything except what she was born to do: rule the Indranan empire. That is, until two Trackers drag her back to her home planet to take her rightful place as the only remaining heir.
But trading her ship for a palace has more dangers than Hail could have anticipated. Caught in a web of plots and assassination attempts, Hail can’t do the one thing she did twenty years ago — run away. She’ll have to figure out how her mother became so ill and who murdered her sisters if she wants to survive.
