Cold Between Stars (The Echo 1)

In the dark, empty space between solar systems, something lies in wait.

It’s pretty easy being a ship kid; clean out the cyclers, avoid your sister, don’t get sucked into space. The hardest bit about it is spending a couple of decades in stasis/sleep while your ship travels to the next solar system. Then rinse and repeat all the way back to a home you’ve never seen.

Except I just got kicked out of stasis early, like years early. And I’m alone.

All. Alone.

Except for the fug.

Cold Between Stars is the first book in The Echo trilogy, an epic sci-fi series. With aliens, spaceships, big arse mechs and an LGBTQI+ hero having a REALLY bad day, it’s perfect for fans of The Expanse, Murderbot and Alien.
