Simon A. G. Spencer, author of the “alternately gritty and gossamer” Soul, Light, and Wings, returns in February 2022 with the first book of his Birthright series, Shadows of Slavery!

The Deus are not supposed to interfere with mortals. But when a prophecy foretells the fall of the entire galaxy, the gods must look beyond the pantheon for help.

Marissa and Arc Rhapsody escaped a life as gladiator slaves to take entirely different paths. Arc put his violent past behind him to become a diplomat, while Marissa returned to the only thing she was good at: fighting. Uncommon strength is the gift, and the curse, of her half-Deus heritage.

When a simple treaty negotiation goes terribly wrong and Arc disappears, war between two galactic powers begins to brew. Marissa isn’t the only one searching for answers, but clues are scarce and time is short. If her alliance of smugglers, mercenaries, and truthseekers can’t find answers soon, the prophecy will come to pass, and the galaxy will be doomed.

Check out the book detail page and stay tuned next month for the cover reveal of this fantastic space opera adventure!
