Entangled Universe Books

You're Cordially Invited to Crossroads Station

New for 2023!

When an unexpected wedding invitation arrives, Anno packs her family up for a trip across the stars.

There's a lot of fun, touristy things to do on Crossroads Station, including spacewalks, cloud surfing on New Jupiter, and enjoying the cosmopolitan atmosphere of a place that's home to many dozens of different species of alien. But there's also a reckoning to be had with her larger family, who Anno hasn't seen in eight years. She was born and raised in the cult of Xeno-Nativity, and most of her dozen siblings -- each of a different species -- are still enmeshed in the myrmecoidal matrons' talons. Can they forgive her for leaving them behind? And can she save them from staying trapped there forever?

This is a story about crossing star systems to be with the ones you love, the complexity of family, and the power of reconnecting with the best parts of your past, while fighting to leave the worst parts behind.

Entanglement Bound (Entangled Universe Book 1)

Clarity's home is her spaceship. Living on the move. Planet to planet.

When money trouble forces Clarity and her traveling companion, Irohann, to take on passengers, Irohann worries his secret identity will be revealed. He's a canine alien on the run from an empire of sentient plants, and their queen has a personal vendetta against him.

But Clarity believes his fears are unfounded and the Doraspians gave up on him long ago.

Heartsick at the idea of losing their ship, Clarity accepts an offer that's clearly too good to be true, and they find themselves swept up in the crazy schemes of a rogue AI in a stolen robot body and her haphazardly assembled team of disparate aliens, including a hive-minded swarm, a giant insect, a rabbit-like alien, and a living spaceship who loves bunnies. Together the team must break into an abandoned science station, mangled by an entangled particle trying to destroy the universe.

When disaster strikes, Clarity steps up to pull the team together, but it may come at the cost of the very home and friendship she was trying to save.

Don't miss this space opera full of unique and unforgettable aliens, and a universe full of adventure. Perfect for fans of classic Space Opera, from Star Wars to Firefly.

The Entropy Fountain (Entangled Universe Book 2)

There is no rest for heroes. Clarity saved the universe once, but it already needs saving again.

Against reservations and amid arguments, Clarity rescues a pair of Doraspian diplomats on the run. The two sentient plants and their reptilian advisor are keeping a secret that could make their own government turn on them, and turn them into science-experiments waiting to be dissected.

In need of answers, Clarity and her crew head to Wespirtech, the foremost research institute in their corner of the galaxy, where scientists play with the principles of the universe like kids play with toys.

Clarity learns that when her crew sewed the universe back together, something got tangled in the thread, and she must race against a fleet of Doraspians to stop universes from colliding. Every member of her crew must decide: are they up for saving the universe again? Or will Clarity lose her new found family and have to face off against the Doraspians alone?

The exciting second book in the Entangled Universe is here. Aliens, adventure, space battles with starwhals? What else could a space opera fan want?

Cover of Starwhal In Flight

Starwhal in Flight (Entangled Universe Book 3)

Where are the other starwhals? The question haunts Clarity, echoing in her dreams.

The cyborg starwhal who Clarity and her crew inhabit has become more than a spaceship or home to them. She's their friend. But while Clarity and crew are filling their starwhal's belly with a gengineered garden, the rest of the pod is still held captive by the Aether Gaia scientists who tinker with and experiment upon them like lab animals.

The all-powerful AI, Wisper, who stretches across star-systems -- inhabiting computers on every space station Clarity has visited -- promised to free the other starwhals. But either she's broken her promise, or something worse has gone wrong.

Clarity and her crew must rescue the starwhals, hoping it will it cure their own beloved starwhal, who has grown sick with worry.

Or is she sick with something else?

Infected by a strange blue energy, Janice doesn't know how much time they have left, or what will happen when time runs out. The underground ruins crawl with mysterious, scarab-like figures, and even death isn't a certain escape, when the dead rise as ghostly forms.

The only logical choice is to flee, but the lizard-like aliens paying for the mission insist on forging on. Their secretive agenda and the sordid history of the sentient spaceship who brought them there divide the crew, when they can't afford to be divided.

Trapped on hell moon, Janice must fight to keep as much of her crew alive as possible while wrestling against impossible odds. The only one who has a clue about how all the pieces tie together is a little girl who survived the last hundred years asleep in her cryo-pod.

On a world where the dead rise as ghosts and multiple civilizations have already been destroyed, solving the mystery of the scarabs might be the only way to survive and escape... HELL MOON.
