When Clue Forester leaves Eris Space Station behind to live on a distant Earth settlement on the planet Cassini, she discovers a new reality of troublesome mononoke, beautiful ocean spirits, and vengeful demons who attempt to use her for their own purposes.
However, a powerful Okami rules the city of Scorpius and may be Clue’s only hope if she is to survive long enough to uncover the mystery of her uncle’s demise.
With the onset of winter, trouble arrives in Scorpius when cargo ships and their crews begin mysteriously vanishing. When Clue learns that among the missing is the boyfriend of her heartbroken new friend, she promises to help find him. However, Clue’s search embroils her in danger from gangsters, pirates, and sea monsters. Is Kiyohime behind the sunken cargo ships and drowned crews or is there something more nefarious lurking beneath Cassini’s oceans? Will Clue solve the case before she loses more than just her new home?
Teagan Green dreams of escaping the drudgery of Earth and traversing the stars. Will her dreams come true, or will events from her past destroy her?
As soon as Teagan Green turns eighteen, she leaves her painful childhood behind and travels as far as her credits will take her. In Union Port City, she is homeless until she becomes a reclamation worker. Teagan’s only dream is to one day make it up into the stars. She gets her wish when she is hired as a domestic assistant on Tora, a merchant starship. On Tora, Teagan meets Yukihyo Lee, an alien who survived the brutal slaughter of his entire clan at the hands of the Parvac Empire. Yukihyo is of a race in which the males require emotional bonds with their females in order to control their aggressive tendencies. He finds that bond in Teagan. While exploring the Galaxic Expanse with the crew of Tora, Teagan discovers a universe full of beauty and danger, true love, and her own personal worth.
Teagan Alaric Montgomery Lee has travelled through Galaxic space, married the man of her dreams, and gained the loving family she always has needed.
However, news of her father’s capture and execution by the Parvac Empire throws Teagan’s life into turmoil. Fearing her Parvac grandfather, General Valen, plans to abduct her, Teagan is desperate to avoid her grandmother’s fate. Never again to see Yukihyo or her family is a nightmare that forces Teagan from the stars to remain on Arachne.
Caught in a power struggle between the Galaxic Government and the Parvac Empire, Teagan’s fate hangs in the balance. Being protected by the Galaxic Militia, her family, and thousands of sentient Arachnean Silk spiders, may not be enough to prevent Teagan from losing everyone she loves.
While Teagan’s life may have changed from the obscurity of a reclamation worker on Earth to that of royalty in the Parvac Empire, she soon discovers her notoriety places her in danger.
After a cunning plot orchestrated by Consul Dano, Teagan is manipulated into a political marriage in order to maintain peace. However, the marriage is to the son of Laconia’s other ruler, Consul Bosh, and Commander Quaid Bosh of the Hadrian infuriates Teagan.
Attempting to regain control of her life and avoid Commander Bosh becomes more challenging when the consuls extend an invitation to Princess Probus to visit the Laconian Sector. During the diplomatic tour, the lives of Teagan and her loved ones are placed in jeopardy when she is abducted by a small army of hybrid mercenaries with nefarious plans of their own.
As the hybrid mercenaries chase Teagan through the galaxies, the Parvac Empire and Galaxic Militia will have to work together to save her from the criminal mastermind controlling the hybrids.
