Three hundred years ago, Earth suffered a mass extinction event. The last humans fled to the stars in search of a new home. In the darkness, they fought to survive. Now the fleet decays, and their hope of finding a better world is fading.

Era Corinth works to preserve the archives, but viewing them herself would be treason. When she’s faced with the possibility that her unborn child may be aborted due to a genetic defect, her fascination with ancient secrets escalates to obsession.

Brutal conspiracies and devastating betrayals threaten to fracture the fleet. And the colonists have forgotten the most important lesson their ancestors swore to remember: It only took one wrong choice to destroy life on Earth.

Will their descendants make the same mistake?

" ... we see the society of the fleet unfold before us. It is filled with intrigue, passion, mystery and personal conflict."

" ... this series is GREAT! It's intense, exciting, heartbreaking, it pulls your emotions in so many different directions during the WHOLE book."


Tadeo Raines knows what they say about him. It's all lies. But lies are better than the truth.
He broke the rules once and swore he'd never do it again. Now traitors plot against the fleet, and he's tasked with hunting them down and stopping them. Permanently.

Tadeo was born to command, born to lead the last remnants of humanity to a new Earth. He knows there's a better world out there: Daylight at the end of humanity's long night. And he's willing to do whatever it takes to get the fleet there. Even if it means walking the line between loyalty and treason. And breaking the rules... Again.

What readers are saying:

" ... a fast-paced story full of twists and thrills."

"This is a very good story that has your heart pounding as you turn the pages. Intrigue, nefarious plots, twists and turns around every corner - great series, even if you're not a fan of science fiction."

"From the moment I read the first paragraph of Paragon, up until the last sentence, I was enthralled. Non stop, on edge, exciting action. I honestly couldn't put a fault on this one, I loved all of it, including the song! The Fractured Era series is still up there amongst my favourite novels of the year."

"Full of questions, traitors galore, secrets & suspicions. You can't even trust your own family in this world!"

"The story picks up right where it left off in the first book, and is a page turner! The plot thickens, the mystery deepens and at the end it leaves you hungry for the third installment."

"Such a great follow up to Legacy Code (which ended up on my Top Ten 2014 list) I love Autumn's writing style, she is so talented and takes you right there alongside the characters. This is a beautiful and unique story and I can't wait to read more!!"

"In a story where I fell in love with the characters, it is easy to have your heart broken, have a smile on your face, or cry over a simple scene in the book. This is one series I would never stop reading, and admittedly, have read on more than one occasion!"

"This series has me intrigued, it feels realistic, real and frightening at the same time. Humanity is alone in space in their fleet of ships and they have nowhere to go, they try to find a better earth, a new home. I want to know if they ever find it."

"The characters and story line felt so real, it was hard not to get hooked."
" ...Pulse-pounding action ... I was rooting for the characters so hard."

A brutal conspiracy threatens humanity's survival.

Three hundred years ago, the Earth died, and the last humans fled. Beaten. Broken in more ways than one. But there was something they couldn't leave behind: The Legacy Code--mangled genes that force them to abort half their unborn children.

When Era and Dritan Corinth get placements on the safest ship in the fleet and win a chance to have a child, they feel lucky. Until the day Era's supposed to find out if her baby has the Defect, and the ship suffers a hull breach.
An investigation uncovers new threats. Dangerous secrets. Lies. Treason. Era begins to question everything she's been taught about the fleet, their search for a new Earth, and the Defect. But the answers she seeks were never meant to be found...

Legacy Code is a suspenseful, dark post-apocalyptic read that has earned five star reviews from fans of books like Hunger Games, Divergent, and Red Rising, and has been compared favorably to Wool, 1984, and the new Battlestar Galactica.

"Addictive sci-fi series. I haven't been this hooked on an author since Anne McCaffery's Killashandra series." ~ Marie Hall, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

What Readers are Saying:
"Upon receiving my copy of The Legacy Code, I started reading and just could not stop, until it was over."

"It pulled me in faster than most books I have read and kept me on the edge of my seat through the end. I read it all in just a few hours." 

"...An uncertain future has the colonists on edge, leading to acts of terrorism and assassination attempts on government officials... There are several intriguing elements at play, most significantly, the mystery of the Legacy Code and whether it holds the key to humanity's survival...I'm looking forward to continuing the series to see where it goes from here."

"A couple of chapters in and I was already hooked! I ended up staying up til midnight (as a mother of a toddler this is a rare occasion) in order to finish it."

"I just finished this book...at 6:00 AM. This society crafted by Autumn Kalquist is fascinating. I can't even imagine how much time she spent carefully plotting every detail. Their existence feels so real and so frighteningly possible."

"Autumn Kalquist is a talented author. LEGACY CODE is easy to read, her plot is engaging, and her characters are real. Her world building is second to none, and I felt completely sucked into her story."

"It kind of had an initial feel of Battlestar Galactica -- a civilization that has to abandon their planet and go in search of a new one. ...It had mystery, a bit of a thriller like aspect, humor, and a taste of romance. I'm hooked enough for another taste, now I just have to wait!" 

"I both love and hate this book...but in a good way! Instantly I fell in love with the characters and storyline that Kalquist spun together...This story is based in the future (almost a space opera / dystopian) where the populations of earth escaped to space to find a better world. ...we arrive in a distant future where civilization exists on space ships and they have to take decades before making jumps across space -similar in a way to what I imagine Stargate"

" ...riveting. Just a couple pages and I was hooked. I made me want to spend every free minute reading it until I finished the whole book. I can hardly wait to read the next book in the series. Action packed and fast moving the whole way through. A must read for Sci-Fi fans."

Telepathy. Just a far-fetched bit of science fiction "hocus pocus." But is it? With today's giant leaps forward in technology and biotechnology, with people constantly surrounded by sophisticated yet invisible communication networks, and with a rapidly increasing understanding of the brain's inner workings . . . is it so hard to imagine that we might be able to develop direct mind-to-mind communication? Or might it not be the case that evolution alone, in the right circumstances--if not on this planet, then on others--could give rise to creatures with telepathic abilities?

This collection of fourteen stories explores the ramifications of a future where telepathy is real. From that first glorious moment of discovery, to the subsequent jealousies and class divisions, to the dangers of weaponization and the blessings of medical miracles, The Telepath Chronicles promises to take you inside the creative minds of some of today's top science fiction authors.
