Space adventure at its finest – Prime Deceptions is the outrageously fun sequel to Valerie Valdes’ debut Chilling Effect, featuring the further adventures of Captain Eva Innocente and her misfit crew. For fans of Becky Chambers, Mass Effect and Firefly.

Captain Eva Innocente and the crew of La Sirena Negra find themselves once again on the edge – not just of populated space, but also of a covert war between The Fridge, the intergalactic crime ring, and The Forge, a secret alien research organisation.

When Eva’s sister contacts her with a request to find a missing scientist, the trail ends at the last place Eva ever wanted to see, the site of her greatest failure. Joining a group of freedom fighters seeking to overthrow a dictator, Eva learns that The Forge is in the final phase of creating a new Gate – dangerous technology that was thought to be lost forever…


Jam-packed with weird aliens, mysterious artefacts, and lovable characters . . . A tremendous good time

Patrick Weekes, Lead writer at BioWare (Dragon Age, Mass Effect) on CHILLING EFFECT
This engaging space opera debut delivers a story that dances between hilarity and seriousness, with all the joy and frustration psychic cats can bring to the mix
Library Journal (starred review) on CHILLING EFFECT
Mass Effect meets The Expanse in this energetic space opera adventure. Eva Innocente is an unforgettable starship captain and I love every member of her crew-slash-family. This book has enough twists to keep you up way past bedtime
