#1 New York Times bestselling authors Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings deliver the dazzling finale to the acclaimed Androma Saga, where stunning betrayals and devastating secrets send an embattled galaxy spiraling into the ultimate nightmare.
Her ship is gone, her crew is captured and notorious mercenary Androma Racella is no longer the powerful Bloody Baroness, but a fugitive ruthlessly hunted across the Mirabel Galaxy. The bloodthirsty Queen Nor now rules most of the galaxy through a mind-control toxin and she'll stop at nothing to destroy her most hated adversary.
Andi will risk anything, even her precious freedom, to find a cure. Stranded with her unlikely ally, Dex, on the unforgiving ice planet of Solera, their plan to infiltrate a black-market city proves dangerously irresistible.
Back in Arcardius, Nor's actions have opened Mirabel to invasion. As Andi's crew fights to regain their freedom, Andi and Dex discover a threat far greater than anything they've faced before.
Only by saving their mortal enemy can the crew of the Marauder make one last desperate strike to save the galaxy--unaware that a shattering, centuries-old secret may demand the most wrenching sacrifice of all.
What inspired you to write this book?
I have always loved space. I actually wanted to be an astronomer but you have to be good at math to do that, which I am terrible at. So instead, Lindsay and I took our love for SciFi shows/movies and mixed it with my knowledge of the stars and out popped Zenith!
Do you have any deleted scenes or subplots from the book you can share?
We were going to make one of the main side characters into a more major role but ended up cutting it since it complicated the storyline too much.
Who are your favorite and least favorite characters from this series and why?
My favourite is Nor since I love her complexity and my least favourite is Darai since he’s an a-hole and up to no good!
Who was the most/least fun character to write in this story?
I find them all fun to write but Nor is my favourite. I don’t have a least favourite but Andi was harder for me to write since she is so different from me.
What would you do if you spent the day with your main characters? Where would you go to eat, hang out, relax, etc.?
I would run away, they would intimidate me too much. Especially Andi!
What would your characters favorite books be and why?
Nor would totally be a sucker for smutty romance books, and so would Breck! Andi would read Sarah J Maas books and Dex would try to read a book, but never finish it.
Thank you so much for answering my questions Sasha!
