The September Round-up of SciFi Books

Once again, I've been doing some also-bought surfing, starting with Liberty (Two Democracies: Revolution Book 1). Here are the pick of the crop...

Translucid by Zen diPietro
What if you woke up knowing how to do your job, but not your own name? What if you had to rely on other people to tell you who you were?
What if you thought they were wrong?
Emé Fallon is the security chief of Dragonfire Station, and does a damn good job of it. That’s where her competence ends. Outside of work, she has a wife she doesn’t know, a captain who seems to hate her, and a lot of questions that don’t add up.
Without a past, all she has is the present, and she’ll stop at nothing to ensure she has a future.

Rescue by Ryk Brown
A leader left behind...
An Alliance falling apart...
Friends stranded on an enemy-held world...
A chance to rediscover long forgotten truths...
The new threat will require an immediate response. But first, Jessica and the Ghatazhak must execute a daring rescue in order to secure their future. But to do so, they need the one man they have been trying to protect.
The question is... Will he agree?

The Chosen by Shay West
Astra. Kromin. Volgon. Earth. To each of the four planets are sent four Guardians, with one mission: to protect and serve the Chosen, those unwitting champions of prophecy who alone can save the Galaxy from the terrifying Mekans. But the signs of prophecy have not yet appeared, and the decision to send the Guardians early could doom all in the galaxy to death.

Flashpoint by Adam Quinn
What is the cost of peace?
Guilt-ridden over her role in the cataclysmic Order War, Taylor Ghatzi decided to retire from galactic politics and dedicate her life to the Emergency Service—until a deadly terror attack strikes her home world, and she may be the only one able to unravel the mystery behind it.
Meanwhile, Cherran DeGuavra, the son of the most important statesman in the past century, gave up on trying to reunite the galaxy frayed by his late father's greatest mistake, but now must call upon all of his diplomatic powers to prevent it from tearing itself even further apart.
With the galaxy's powers on a war footing and their own government obstructing them, Taylor and Cherran may need to start a fight to prevent one.

Razor's War Episode 1 by Nick S Thomas
The year is 2512. War rages throughout the Alliance, but not for Razor, the Galaxy's greatest thief. She is set to make the biggest score of her career. A priceless jewel from one of the Alliance's most advanced and secure star bases. It is the perfect heist, but when the station comes under attack by the relentless forces of the Morohtan Empire, her mission becomes a terrifying fight for survival.

Ad Astra by Kevin McLaughlin

In 2034, the Earth is in crisis. Energy use is at an all-time high, and energy-hungry nations seem on the verge of going to war with one another.
But on the moon a discovery is made, something that changes the balance of everything. A set of caves is opened by explorers, revealing a buried base thousands of years old. Among the relics found is the ruin of an ancient starship, with an engine capable of carrying humanity to the stars - or becoming the golden apple that starts a war no one can win.
A handful of unlikely heroes will risk their lives to keep the starship safe.
If life knocked you down, would you risk everything you had left to reach for the stars?

Endurance by Amy Spahn
A disrespected ship, exiled to lonely patrol in the dark corners of the solar system.
A crew of screw-ups, written off by the entire fleet.
They're about to change everything.
If they don't blow themselves up first.
Join the Endurance's crew - a trigger-happy first officer, a hyperactive engineer, a shy covert operative, a conspiracy-spouting physicist, and a captain trying to earn his way back into his superiors' good graces - as they explore the galaxy by accident and trip their way into saving the world.
This anthology includes all five Endurance novellas, as well as two bonus short stories.
