JAMIE MCFARLANE SERIES:
There’s guerrilla warfare in the main asteroid belt. The Red Houzi pirates have launched a deadly campaign, sacking defenseless mining colonies and then vanishing into the deep dark of space. No one can predict where or when they will show up next, not even the great Mars Protectorate Navy.
Liam Hoffen and Nick James have returned from their last encounter grateful to be alive, but wondering what they’ll do next. Sterra's Gift is nothing more than a broken heap, strapped to a pile of ore. Replacing their beloved ship is hopeless – or so they think until a crazy old man introduces them to an old British warship named Hotspur.
News of Red Houzi attacks near Colony 40 spurs Liam and his crew into action and they set off on a desperate race to save their families. But, what can one ship possibly do against an entire fleet? They’ll put everything on the line, but the question is - will it be enough?
The orphan Priloe and his sister Milenette are looking for a new place to live. Having run into the swash-buckling hero Liam Hoffen, Priloe wonders why in the world anyone would give up his family to go careening around the stars as the privateer Hoffen has.
On a chance encounter with Hoffen's mother, Silver, Priloe is given opportunity to visit the Hoffen family asteroid mining operation. It's a chance of a lifetime and he seizes on it. Unfortunately, trouble is never far away and Priloe finds himself drug into a mystery at an abandoned mining claim.
In the end, he'll have to make hard decisions that may well separate him from the family he's always wanted as the life of another hangs in the balance.
Life of a Miner was originally conceived, written and released one chapter at a time on Jamie's blog, where even he wasn't sure how the story would end up. It's a quick read that I'm sure you'll enjoy.
Following closely on the heels of Buccaneers, Liam and the crew of Hotspur take a much needed vacation on the tropical planet Curie, where they have nothing more to do than enjoy sun and sand. Trouble is never far away for this group of privateers, however, as a mysterious invitation to meet the reclusive Phillipe Anino interrupts their holiday.
With more wealth than could be spent in twenty lifetimes and access to illicit technology and information, Anino discovered a common interest with the crew – the fate of the Cape of Good Hope. Anino believes he has a way to recover the Cape's crew, but to do so will pit Liam and his friends against the powerful Belirand Corporation.
Will the crew of Hotspur take the risky mission and become fugitives for the sake of forty-five people they don't know? Or will they leave the people on board the Cape of Good Hope to die, alone in the deep dark of space?
There's more at stake than any of them could guess. The actions of Liam and his friends could very well change the known universe forever.
Modern day wizard Felix Slade knows better than to meddle in the lives of witches. But when a chance encounter with a beautiful witch, Gabriella, sparks a vision of her demise at the hand of a werewolf, he knows he must act. To make matters worse, his vision reveals feelings he has for this woman he's only seen from afar and in that moment his life is changed forever.
Trouble has been brewing in sleepy Leotown, but explodes when Felix witnesses the gruesome murder of Gabriella’s coven leader and ends up number one on a short list of suspects. It's a poor start to their relationship when Gabriella and her coven sisters attack Felix while looking for answers. With her foot literally on his chest, Felix begins to doubt what he felt in his vision - that is - until the werewolves actually show up.
Wizard in a Witchy World is the first book in the Witchy World series – an urban fantasy, paranormal fairy tale.
Liam Hoffen and Nick James are back in the next, exciting installment of Jamie McFarlane's Privateer Tales.
After fighting space pirates and rescuing a damsel in distress, nothing sounds better than shore leave at Puskar Stellar on Mars where Liam can reconnect with his girlfriend. But neither their newest crew member, Marny, nor the Mars Protectorate Navy is ready for them to spend much time relaxing.
Their old nemesis, Harry Flark, found a new mining station to pillage and the crew of Sterra's Gift has been hired to transport a covert operative into Flark's lair. This is the perfect opportunity for them to set things right if it helps to bring him down. The big problem comes when Liam and Nick discover Flark is expecting them and has no intention of letting them get away with their lives.
Like white knights on silver steeds, Liam, Nick, Marny and a passel of new friends fight their way across the solar system, making a name for themselves and their mission.
