Fortune of War

Fortune of War
Mack, David, 1969-

"Twenty years have passed since the interstellar scourge known as the Husnock were exterminated without warning by a being with godlike abilities. Left behind, intact but abandoned, their desolate worlds and derelict ships brim with destructive potential. Now a discovery by a Federation cultural-research team has drawn the attention of several ruthless factions. From black-market smugglers to alien military forces, it seems every belligerent power in the quadrant hopes to capture the Husnock's lethal technology. All that stands between the Galaxy and those who have come to plunder the cruelest secrets of the Husnock are Admiral William Riker, Captain Christine Vale, and the crew of the Starship Titan."--Provided by publisher.

Valerian: The Complete Collection. Volume 3

Valerian: The Complete Collection. Volume 3
Christin, Pierre

This third book of the collected edition contains volumes 6 to 8: Ambassador of the Shadows, the story that directly inspired Luc Besson's film, On the False Earths, and Heroes of the Equinox. Over the course of these titles, Laureline takes her rightful place as the brains of the outfit, while Valerian fully embraces his role as anti-hero: always brave, but often a bit out of his depth. You will also find the end of the interview with Luc Besson and the authors, and an in-depth portrait of Jean-Claude Mezieres, the artist.

Shattered Minds

Shattered Minds
Lam, Laura, 1988-

Carina used to be one of the best biohackers in Pacifica. But when she worked for Sudice and saw what the company's experiments on brain recording were doing to their subjects, it disturbed her--especially because she found herself enjoying giving pain and contemplating murder. She quit and soon grew addicted to the drug Zeal, spending most of her waking moments in a horror-filled dream world where she could act out her depraved fantasies without actually hurting anyone. One of her trips is interrupted by strange flashing images and the brutal murder of a young girl. Even in her drug-addicted state, Carina knows it isn't anything she created in the Zealscape. On her next trip, she discovers that an old coworker from Sudice, Max, sent her these images before he was killed by the company. Encrypted within the images are the clues to his murder, plus information strong enough to take down the international corporation. Carina's next choice will transform herself, San Francisco, and possibly the world itself.

What they don't realize is that the casinos are run by an ex-client who didn't get his shipment due to the war. The mob boss decides to take Tamara Rouke, the Keiko's second-in-command, and hold her hostage until the crew raises enough money to pay him back for the lost shipment. If they don't pay up in time, Rouke will be killed. Captain Ichabod Drift and his crew agree. But as they find a way to get the funds, one will betray everyone and one will die.
