Heaven's Queen

Book 3 of Paradox

By Rachel Bach

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

Following Fortune's Pawn and Honour's Knight, the space adventure continues in this action-packed military science fiction novel featuring mercenary Deviana Morris.

From the moment she took a job on Captain Caldswell's doomed ship, Devi Morris's life has been one disaster after another: government conspiracies, two alien races out for her blood and an incurable virus that's eating her alive. Now, with the captain missing and everyone - even her own government - determined to hunt her down, things are going from bad to impossible.

The sensible plan would be to hide and wait for things to blow over, but Devi's never been one to shy from a fight, and she's getting mighty sick of running. It's time to put this crisis on her terms and do what she knows is right. But with all human life hanging on her actions, the price of taking a stand might be more than she can pay.

Biographical Notes

Rachel Bach grew up wanting to be an author and a supervillain. Unfortunately, supervillainy proved surprisingly difficult to break into, so she stuck to writing and everything worked out great. She currently lives in Athens, GA with her perpetually energetic toddler, extremely understanding husband, overflowing library and obese wiener dog.

Chris Brookmyre
Authors:
Chris Brookmyre

Million-copy-selling Chris Brookmyre takes his fiction further than ever before in this wildly inventive and sharply-plotted novel set in the unforgiving emptiness of space."This is as close to a city without crime as mankind has ever seen."Ciudad de Cielo is the 'city in the sky', a space station where hundreds of scientists and engineers work in earth's orbit, building the colony ship that will one day take humanity to the stars. When a mutilated body is found on the CdC, the eyes of the world are watching. Top-of the-class investigator, Alice Blake, is sent from Earth to team up with CdC's Freeman - a jaded cop with more reason than most to distrust such planetside interference. As the death toll climbs and factions aboard the station become more and more fractious, Freeman and Blake will discover clues to a conspiracy that threatens not only their own lives, but the future of humanity itself. Praise for this author: 'FASCINATING, FAST-PACED BUT THOUGHTFUL' Iain M. Banks 'INGENIOUS' SFX 'ENTERTAINING AND INTELLIGENT' Patrick Ness 'RAZOR SHARP' The Big Issue 'BRILLIANT' Charles Stross 'TERRIFYINGLY ADDICTIVE' Guardian 'GRIPPING' Scotsman 'GUARANTEEED TO KEEP YOU GUESSING' Ian Rankin
