Description of this Book

The only thing more fun than a bonkers space battle is a whole book packed with bonkers space battles. Come for the exploding spaceships, stay for the intriguing universe. --Becky Chambers, on The Stars Now Unclaimed It's been three years since Esa joined the ranks of the Justified after her rescue from the Pax by Justified agent Jane Kamali. Together, Esa and Jane travel from planet to Pulse-ravaged planet, searching for other children with Esa's supernatural abilities. It's hard work, but Esa has never felt more assured of her place in the universe. On a visit to a planet so remote that its inhabitants never learned that the Sect Wars ended over a hundred years ago, they learn that the Justified are not the only people searching for gifted children. There is a creature with unexpected powers who will stop at nothing to get its hands on the children that Esa and Jane are trying to rescue. With their latest recruit in tow--a young Wulf child named Sho--Esa and Jane will travel halfway across the galaxy in pursuit of answers. But the answers only lead to more questions, and the danger will only increase as they chase their strange nemesis, determined to learn the purpose of his violent mission.

Author's Bio

DREW WILLIAMS has been a bookseller in Birmingham, Alabama since he was sixteen years old, when he got the job because he came in looking for work on a day when someone else had just quit. Outside of arguing with his coworkers about whether Moby Dick is brilliant (nope) or terrible (that one), his favorite part of the job is discovering new authors and sharing them with his customers. Drew is the author of The Universe After novels (The Stars Now Unclaimed, A Chain Across the Dawn).
