A standalone novel in the Imperium Cicernus Universe


The Imperium is our species’ greatest achievement...
...and it’s dying.
The very institution that ties us together, keeps us safe from the Grays, is teetering on the brink. The great senatorial families vie for dwindling scraps, using every trick in their arsenal to gain advantage.
Inspector Paul Grimm’s best friend has been framed for a murder that, technically, he did commit. Paul must follow the trail before it goes cold to find out who’s behind this latest attack on the powerful Nathaniel family.
To clear his friend’s name, Paul heads out to the Rim where Imperial colonies sit uncomfortably close to territory claimed by the Gray Quorum. In his desperate race to unravel the plot, he’s pulled into a web of intrigue along with Colonel Julia Urbica of the Imperial Marines. Julia's local, irregular troops prefer to enforce the Emperor's peace by finding trouble before it finds them and they adopt Paul's task for reasons of their own.
Events escalate at every step, and Paul’s mission to help a friend is dwarfed by a threat to the very fabric of Imperial life. He must walk the knife’s edge between peace and outright war with an advanced alien species.
But then, perhaps war is just what the Imperium needs. The current peace has a stench of decay about it.

Book 2 in the Rebels and Patriots series


“It could be worse. At least you’re an Imperial citizen.”

Anon
It was a common enough phrase in the Imperium, but it began to ring false for Paul Grimm and Julia Urbica after their failed scouting mission at the Gray world of Sintel. Captured and carried far beyond the reach of Imperial intervention, they find a society that, while far from perfect, may actually be worth fighting for.
And fight they must. The nearly mythical lost worlds of the ‘Beyonder’ colonies are embroiled in a decades old civil war that shows no signs of ending. Lacking the Imperium’s crushing taxes, the war is prosecuted mainly through the licensing of privateers; ships authorized by the various governments to attack and seize enemy shipping and installations.
As they struggle to find a solid footing in the unfamiliar society of Roanoke, they learn that old enemies are still out there and they’re still pulling strings to keep conflict alive. Paul and Julia must tread carefully to sort out friend from foe, knowing that the slightest misstep could bring about the complete destruction of the Beyonder worlds. Lurking just beyond their borders lies a merciless, calculating enemy and the lightly armed privateers would be no match for purpose built warships.
Being intentionally forgotten by the Imperium can be a double edged sword.

The Orphan Alliance (The Black Ships #3)



An unlikely alliance of Humans and Midgaard has seized a foothold in the Dactari Republic only to be cut off from all support. For three years, our fleet has heard nothing from Earth except for an automated message warning of a highly virulent infection.

Now, a lone ship has appeared bearing fear, pestilence and hope and its presence forces a decision on fleet command.

We can destroy the ship and all the potential it represents, choosing instead to play out the hand already dealt to us, almost certainly leading to a steady decline in personnel. Our only other option is to embrace the deadly gift carried by the Pandora and become something new. With Earth at its most vulnerable, a decision must be made.

And the fight must go on.
