There is darkness sweeping across the stars.
Most know her as the Bloody Baroness, the captain of a fearsome glass starship called The Marauder. Androma and her crew strike terror in the hearts of those who cross them amongst the many corners of the Mirabel Galaxy.
When a routine mission goes rogue, the all-female crew is captured by a bounty hunter from Andi’s past and forced into a job that could, quite literally, start a war that will devour worlds.
Meanwhile, on the far side of the galaxy, the ruthless ruler Nor waits in the shadows of the planet Xen Ptera, biding her time. The final pieces are about to fall into place, liberating a plan that will tear Mirabel in two.
As the Marauder hurtles toward the unknown, there is one lesson that proves to be true: No one can be trusted in a galaxy that runs on lies and illusion.
From internet sensation Sasha Alsberg and multi-genre author Lindsay Cummings comes a new serialized space opera, full of action, intrigue, and steamy star-crossed romance.
ZENITH: THE ANDROMA SAGA will be released in small sections at a time.
The adventure begins June 21st, 2016, wherever ebooks are sold.
The Mirabel Galaxy

Tenebris: The planet where the military is based.

The Marauder is a sleek, beautiful, deadly and delicious beast of a starship that looked to be made of the stars in which it swam, that is led by the Bloody Baroness herself Captain Androma Racella (aka Andi), and run by a group of girls that had run from every hellish corner of the galaxy. And they were as sharp as Andi’s blades. They are the Marauders.
Androma Racella (aka Andi): Captain of The Marauder.
Lira Mette: Pilot of The Marauder.
Breck Niles: Main gunner of The Marauder.
Gilly Ferris: Second gunner of The Marauder.
Dex: Bounty hunter, works for Mirabel.

I am loving the usage of swear words in Zenith. Is this your doing, Lindsay? 😉

On the darkest nights, they clung to her like a second skin.”

“A female captain was one thing. But a whole rutting ship full of girls?
They flew like demons sprung from a pit of fire.”

Hell yeah — GO LADIES!!! Show ’em who runs the galaxy.
“Hearts were pathetic things, too easily broken.
The Bloody Baroness couldn’t afford such a weakness.”

There would be another tally added soon, accompanying the others on her blades.
It had Dex’s name written all over it.
