In the Retro Hugo Award–nominated novel that inspired the Syfy miniseries, alien invaders bring peace to Earth—at a grave price: “A first-rate tour de force” (The New York Times). In the near future, enormous silver spaceships appear without warning over mankind’s largest cities. They belong to the Overlords, an alien race far superior to humanity in technological development. Their purpose is to dominate Earth. Their demands, however, are surprisingly benevolent: end war, poverty, and cruelty. Their presence, rather than signaling the end of humanity, ushers in a golden age . . . or so it seems. Without conflict, human culture and progress stagnate. As the years pass, it becomes clear that the Overlords have a hidden agenda for the evolution of the human race that may not be as benevolent as it seems. “Frighteningly logical, believable, and grimly prophetic . . . Clarke is a master.” —Los Angeles Times

Past or future, which path do you choose? Past, present and future collide as the Thirteenth Doctor meets classic Doctor Who companion Ace – in the first epic novel from the woman who played her, Sophie Aldred. Once, a girl called Ace travelled the universe with the Doctor – until, in the wake of a terrible tragedy they parted company. Decades later, she is known as Dorothy McShane, the reclusive millionaire philanthropist who heads global organisation A Charitable Earth. And Dorothy is haunted by terrible nightmares, vivid dreams that begin just as scores of young runaways are vanishing from the dark alleyways of London. Could the disappearances be linked to sightings of sinister creatures lurking in the city shadows? Why has an alien satellite entered a secret orbit around the Moon? Investigating the satellite with Ryan, Graham and Yaz, the Doctor is thrown together with Ace once more. Together they must unravel a malevolent plot that will cost thousands of lives. But can the Doctor atone for her past incarnation’s behaviour – and how much must Ace sacrifice to win victory not only for herself, but for the Earth?

Firefly meets Lethal Weapon in this exciting sci-fi mystery adventure! Deep in the frontier of a galactic empire, on the edges of explored space, a body is found near a remote settlement on an alien world. The body of a child. The victim isn't from the settlement, her cause of death is suspicious, and where she came from is a complete mystery. How did this little girl get to this planet light-years away from civilization, and how did she die? To solve this baffling case, the local settlers call upon the Galactic Rangers, a newly formed group of roving lawmen who are tasked with bringing law and order to the Frontier - an area of rapid expansion and colonization which is typically lawless. The two newest Galactic Rangers - Deckland "Rook" Prescott and Braxxon Berenger - are assigned the case. Rook is fresh out of the academy and does things strictly by the book. Berenger is a rough-and-tumble frontiersman who does things his own way. The two men don't like each other, and they certainly don't get along. But they agree to try to work together to investigate the death of this mysterious child. As their investigation deepens, they discover that this case is about more than just the death of a child. The two Rangers stumble upon a conspiracy which could shake the core of the galactic empire they serve, and solving this murder could cost them their own lives. With no one left to rely on but each other, can these two Rangers set aside their differences long enough to get justice for the dead child? Can they survive the dangers of bringing this devious conspiracy to light? Do they have what it takes to be the one thing this chaotic area of frontier space needs the most: true Lawmen? Lawmen: Rook and Berenger - Childhood's End, is the first book in the Galactic Ranger Chronicles series. If you're a fan of mysteries, westerns, and science fiction adventure, this is not a story to be missed!
