When you first look up Pax Novis by Erica Cameron, a sidebar summary tells you that it’s a gritty science fiction thriller full of forbidden romance and comparable to Illuminae. If you’re anything like me, a person who reads every science fiction book she can get her hands on, you now have added the book to your must reads list immediately and already ordered a copy/placed it on hold at the library. And just wait till you see the cover! You can pre-order here!
Read what the author, Erica Cameron, has to say about the cover:
“The first time I saw the final cover, all I could do was stare. It’s beautiful! Every time I look at it, I see a new detail I love. The maintenance area feel of the corridor, the figure’s silver hair, the color contrast between the blue glow inside the ship and the red-pink glow of the planets beyond, the lighting effects on the title font–all of it comes together for a design that’s not only gorgeous, but is so perfect for this book!”
Cira Antares has disavowed all ties to any planet. Her loyalty is only to the Pax Novis—her mother’s ship that transports supplies across war-torn star systems—and her personal mission of saving war orphans.
Riston is one of those orphans. For three years, he’s lived hidden within the trade ship, and now he’s the oldest of the small group of teens who secretly call Pax Novis home.
Until supplies meant for war orphans start going missing. Food. Clothes. Tools. Cargo. Cira is ordered to lead a search of the ship, and all signs point to her stowaways. Now, Riston is torn between helping Cira and the kids who look to him to protect them. Determined to help both, he goes searching for the real culprit and discovers the thefts are only the beginning—other cargo ships are going missing.
Not caught in a firefight. Not destroyed by another planet. Vanishing. Without a trace.
And Pax Novis is next.
