The first two installments are available and a third book (Celestine Princess) will be coming summer of 2021. A fourth installment (Carthosene) is currently being written.
City of the Invaders: It’s the 24th century and the world is divided into numberless disorganized little kingdoms that sprang out of past societal collapse. These countries are about as hard to navigate as a maze since their unstable ruling structure is mostly composed of gangs and confusing mafia politics. Throw in a lingering memory of the old world, that hovers on this culture like a ghost, and you’ve got the EC—few and rare, the preservers of a past nobody particularly said they wanted to remember. Strife generations ago has left the EC regulated, forbidden to carry weapons in cities, and set to live in their own special communities. For Katia Fierten, an EC girl who grew up outside city jurisdiction, knowing how to use weapons doesn’t mean she wants to use them. But when her family has to move to the Palladian city-state of Wyncon, her brother immediately gets a discarded piece of robotic technology that has files on it leading straight back to a plot in the city government. The more trouble Frank’s robotic dog gets them into, the more Katia finds herself with quite a bit more adventure on her hands than she’d reckoned on when she moved to Wyncon.
