A sci-fi heist novel, out now from Rebellion Publishing!
When linguist and smuggler Sean Wren is blackmailed into a job to get some data off an ancient ship, he’s not expecting it to be the Philosopher’s Stone: a literal recipe for immortality.
Unfortunately, he’s not the only one looking. The undying Ministers, mysterious aliens that have ruled over humanity for thousands of years, want the data too. So does the Republic, the last free human government.
To add to the fun, the map to the treasure is in a long-lost language, the ship’s filled with dangerous traps and genetically-engineered monsters, and the nearby star’s going supernova in a few days.
Easy job, right?
"I read this six-hundred page beast in a single sitting because I couldn't put it down. Hunt's debut is riveting, edge-of-your seat thrills, with plenty of oh-shit and oh-no-look-out moments, but it also examines how people try to be better after making mistakes they regret—and how some are eager to simply make more mistakes. Grab this now. You'll devour it." -- Kevin Hearne, New York Times bestselling author of Ink & Sigil
"An electrically brisk science fantasy adventure filled with the warmth of found family, lively humor, and high adventure. You’ll want to spend time with this crew of space salvagers as they encounter ancient power that could change their fortunes… if they can think on their feet quickly enough." -- World Fantasy Award-winning and New York Times-bestselling author Tobias S. Buckell
