Nia is one of the few souls left aboard a drifting tomb known as The Pacific. The spaceship carries a deadly plague, and by the time they receive a distress call from an approaching shuttle, they are all close to losing hope they might ever escape alive. When the will of the shuttle crew and that of the survivors on The Pacific clash, Nia has to pick a side to save what she holds most dear.

Point of Origin

Suffering from neural degeneration, Thea is fading away in an asylum with no hope of ever leaving it.

When Captain Law offers her an opportunity to board his ship in return for her help, the astrophysicist is faced with having to learn to trust them or end up in another asylum with slim chance for recovery. And then her secret will be lost.

With a contract that they are desperate to obtain and a rogue asteroid in enemy territory, Captain Law and his crew must keep Thea free from harm, but a missing crew member and a band of misfits thwart their efforts and send them on a mission no one was prepared for.

Can Thea and Captain Law learn to work together for one goal or will long-held secrets and mistrust shake their resolve and destroy their efforts?

2015 Point of Origin

Bonds of Steel

On a routine trip across the asteroid field, the robot, Del, and unregistered AI, Vee, meet trouble. With Captain Law and his crew having been put into stasis, their only chance of survival will mean placing themselves at the mercy of what few resources they have. Without a human to assist them, Del and Vee will be vulnerable and so too will the ship and all the lives on board.

Despite their best efforts to avoid unwanted visitors, another ship is en route. Their arrival does not guarantee the safety of those on board, and may ultimately lead to their demise.

With his position on the ship on the line, can Del stave off an attack or are their deaths inevitable?

It’s hard to write a lot about these three stories without giving too much away. The series so far is very fast paced, surprising, and darker than I would have expected, but in a good way. Some of my favorite characters were Nia, Law, and Del, who I believe is the coolest robot ever.

In the Law and Crucible saga, the world is a dark and gritty place, and dangers lurk everywhere in the universe. Thieves, plagues, greed, secrets, they all form a web that can lead the crew to certain death. The blend of humans from all walks of lives and AIs/robots is quite interesting and adds a bit of humor to the tale.

If you love science fiction and fast paced adventures, then you will enjoy this series as must as I have. And when you’re done, you will join me in wondering how much longer you have to wait for the next one 😀
