Publisher's Summary

In an effort to save the universe, she just might destroy it. The Stars Now Unclaimed is the incredible debut by a brilliant new voice in science fiction, perfect for everyone who loves Ready Player One, Star Wars, Mass Effect or just a really huge battle....

A century ago, a mysterious pulse of energy spread across the universe. Meant to usher in a new era of peace and prosperity, it instead destroyed technology indiscriminately, leaving some worlds untouched and throwing others into total chaos.

The Justified, a mysterious group of super-soldiers, have spent a hundred years trying to find a way to restore order to the universe. Their greatest asset is the feared mercenary Kamali, who travels from planet to planet searching for gifted young people and bringing them to the secret world she calls home. Kamali hopes that those she rescues will be able to find a way to reverse the damage the pulse wreaked and ensure that it never returns.

But Kamali isn’t the only person looking for answers to unimaginable questions. And when her mission to rescue a grumpy teenage girl named Esa goes off the rails, Kamali suddenly finds herself smack in the centre of an intergalactic war...that she started.

An exhilarating space opera, vividly read

An excellent, swashbuckling space yarn, full of human interest, tech used as genuine plot points not just as Deus ex machina where the story fails, some thrilling and beautifully described battles, and (yes) strong female characters. All excellently and characterful read with style and clear enjoyment by Brittany Pressley.
