ON THE OUTWORLD FRONTIER, GOOD MEN ARE SCARCE AND FRIENDS ARE EXPECTED TO SHARE.
SHE'D RATHER DIE THAN BE A SLAVE TO THE CONQUERORS OF HER HOMEWORLD.Stella McCoy never thought she'd fall prisoner to the barbarian Hameji. The oldest daughter of a working class family, all she wanted was to finish her apprenticeship and start a career an astrogator. But when the Hameji conquer her home world with their…
The Far Outworlds: an endless frontier of uncharted worlds and alien stars. A vast, unsettled stretch of space where generations can pass without outside contact and colonists can live out their lives without seeing anyone from the outside universe.
That prospect terrifies Mariya more than anything else. She's one of the only Deltans on a colony ship where no one understands her religion or culture. She was supposed to marry a good Deltan boy and raise a family with the help of her many relatives, but now she's headed for an unsettled world on the Outworld frontier. Twice a starbound refugee, every last shred of security has been stripped from her life, leaving her future prospects uncertain.
There is one man who can change all that, but he's married to her best friend. Mariya doesn't need to steal him, though—she's perfectly willing to share. Whether or not her friend is willing is something else entirely, but in the end, she may not have a choice.
STAR WANDERERS: REPROACH is a 31,000 word novella set in the Gaia Nova universe one thousand years before the events of BRINGING STELLA HOME, and parallels STAR WANDERERS: SACRIFICE by showing the events of that story from Mariya and Noemi's points of view. It is the seventh installment of the STAR WANDERERS series, which includes:
THE JEREMIAH CHRONICLES (OMNIBUS I-IV)
TALES OF THE FAR OUTWORLDS (OMNIBUS V-VIII)
