From 21st century PhD student to 23rd century vampire space mercenary, Clarke’s had a busy week.
Discovering you are a vampire would normally be the most notable thing in someone’s day. For Florentina Clarke, it gets narrowly edged out when an experiment traps her 200 years into the future. Enlisting as a mercenary on a smuggling vessel that seems to spend more time seeking fights than actually smuggling is an unusual career move for a PhD student. But when you have no money, no ID and the yakuza want a quiet word about a completely honest misunderstanding then perhaps poor life choices are the only life choices.
Okay, so you do have to deal with pirate attacks, a surely captain that refuses to meet you, a ship’s armory that seems to have far too many stakes in it, Orcish squad-mates who keep drinking the illicit coffee you are trying to smuggle, more pirate attacks, your own (future) self who is involving you in her own machinations and an irritating, but magnetic, vampire lover whose personal quest for vengeance has already gotten him killed once.
Shadow Eclipse: Voyage is the first book in the Shadow Eclipse series, following the adventures of Florentina Clarke across time and space.
‘Star trek, but with time-travelling space vampires.’
