The Shadow Order: A Space Opera Publisher's Summary

Seb Zodo lives on the dusty planet of Danu. He's an unemployed dropout who makes his money fighting in bars and taking a cut of the winnings from the touts.

Having never lost a fight, Seb is addicted to the adrenaline of the duel. So when he makes a promise to leave brawling behind, his world's turned on its head. Especially when he finds himself with no money on a hostile planet where the fighting pits offer more than Seb has ever won before. With no way out, Seb must decide whether to fight or not. Every decision he makes with his fists seems to throw his life into deeper chaos, but he's already hit rock bottom.

With the smell of blood and sweat from the fighting pits in his nostrils, Seb watches the current champion. The hairs on the back of his neck raise. He can win. He can claim the purse.

But, if he steps into the ring, it won't end with the last punch. If Seb fights again, he knows his life will spiral out of control.

The Black Hole is a fast-paced, planet-hopping, space opera adventure.

    The Shadow Order has completed the mission it was sent to Solsans for. But now that Seb has seen how the Crimson Countess oppresses the beings living there, he can’t walk away. Driven by his goal to overthrow the countess’s regime, Seb has to amass an army capable of taking down the Crimson foot soldiers, an army built on slum dwellers who have spent their entire lives yielding to their oppressors. Victory will make Solsans a better place to live. However, if they lose, the countess will undoubtedly make the people pay. Failure isn’t an option.
