Persepolis Rising

Persepolis Rising
Corey, James S. A.

"In the thousand-sun network of humanity's expansion, new colony worlds are struggling to find their way. Every new planet lives on a knife edge between collapse and wonder, and the crew of the aging gunship Rocinante have their hands more than full keeping the fragile peace. In the vast space between Earth and Jupiter, the inner planets and belt have formed a tentative and uncertain alliance still haunted by a history of wars and prejudices. On the lost colony world of Laconia, a hidden enemy has a new vision for all of humanity and the power to enforce it. New technologies clash with old as the history of human conflict returns to its ancient patterns of war and subjugation. But human nature is not the only enemy, and the forces being unleashed have their own price. A price that will change the shape of humanity--and of the Rocinante--unexpectedly and forever."--Provided by publisher.

The Spires of Turris

The Spires of Turris
Danse, Christine

"Dr. London Wells, linguist and adventurer, has the unique ability to understand any language in the universe, including the languages left behind by the ancient dead races of the Lost Planets - making him an intergalactic celebrity. But London likes his privacy--and he always works alone. No assistants, no entourage. When he goes on expedition to a Lost Planet, it's just him, the memory of dead aliens, and the resident man-eating fauna. He's a self-sufficient sharp shooter whose insatiable curiosity can stand up to any danger. Until he breaks his head falling from a cliff. That changes everything. Now, after a long recovery, London is onto the greatest discovery of his life: a language to prove a connection between the Lost Planets. In order to investigate further, he'll need to travel to an unforgiving alien planet. But he can't go alone. That's his dean's last condition: either he travels with a research assistant, or not at all. Unfortunately for London, graduate student Chas Chambers is not the only unexpected element on this trip..."--Provided by publisher.
