A thief. An officer. A guardian.
Three strangers, one shared destiny…
When the Last Days came, the planet of Laterre promised hope. A new life for a wealthy French family and their descendants. But five hundred years later, it’s now a place where an extravagant elite class reigns supreme; where the clouds hide the stars and the poor starve in the streets; where a rebel group, long thought dead, is resurfacing.
Whispers of revolution have begun – a revolution that hinges on three unlikely heroes…
Chatine is a street-savvy thief who will do anything to escape the brutal Regime, including spy on Marcellus, the grandson of the most powerful man on the planet.
Marcellus is an officer – and the on of a renowned traitor. In training to take command of the military, Marcellus begins to doubt the government he’s vowed to serve when his father dies and leaves behind a cryptic message that only one person can read: a girl named Aloutte.
Aloutte is living in an underground refuge, where she guards and protects the last surviving library on the planet. But a shocking murder will bring Aloutte to the surface for the first time in twelve years and plunge Laterre into chaos.
All three have a role to play in a dangerous game of revolution – and together they will shape the future of a planet.
Power, romance, and destiny collide in this sweeping reimagining of Victor Hugo’s masterpiece, Les Misérables.
Sky Without Stars releases tomorrow and, if you love Les Misérables with a bit of a space opera spin to it, then you’ll love this. Today is actually the last day to pre-order your copy and enter to get some awesome book swag – an autographed bookplate, Sky Without Stars bookmark and postcard. Plus if you order from one of the indie bookstores listed here you’ll get a LIMITED EDITION full-color poster map of Laterre that won’t be available anywhere else.
Another plus, all pre-orders are guaranteed to get one of two secret covers that will only be available on the book’s first printing.
And to get you even more excited (and ready) for tomorrow’s release, here’s an excerpt from Sky Without Stars. This one is from Chatine’s POV, our feisty and crafty thief whose destiny will change Laterre.
