Part one of a thrilling action-adventure sci-fi duology featuring indomitable characters, incredible worlds, and plenty of rip-roaring action and thrills!

Rescue operation—or suicide mission?

Skyler Luiken and his ragtag crew of scavengers, scientists, and brawlers have a new mission: a long journey to a distant planet where a race of benevolent aliens are held captive behind a cloud of destructive ships known as the Swarm Blockade. No human ships have ever made it past this impenetrable wall, and Skyler knows not what to anticipate when they reach their destination.

Safe to say that the last thing he expects to find there is a second human ship led by the tough-as-nails captain, Gloria Tsandi. These two crews—and their respective captains—initially clash, but they will have to learn to work together when their mutual foe closes in around them and begins the outright destruction of their vessels—along with any hope of a return to Earth.

Injection Burn (Dire Earth Duology #1)They're Ba-a-ck! Both the incredibly creative author Jason Hough and Skyler Luiken, space traveler, adventurer, hero and now legend from the past.(?)

Strap your boots, helmet and spacesuit on, adjust your seatbelt and hang on tight as we head at light speed into another suspense-filled adventure into deep space and the Swarm Blockade. INJECTION BURN will keep science fiction fans in hover mode over each page and through every turn of events.

Somewhere in the vastness of outerspace is a friendly world and for Skyler and his crew, it is his destination. Surrounding that world is a mass of warships called the Swarm Blockade and their line has proven impenetrable to human ships and costly in terms of human lives. When he and his crew are at their most vulnerable, the impossible happens. After who knows how long, a second human ship has appeared and the two captains must decide how to trust, work together or even believe what each has to say.

Time is running out as the Swarm attacks relentlessly and Skyler must find a way to defeat their numbers while keeping at least one of their ships weakened but alive in case by some miracle they live to return home. Things are looking bad for our heroes, and any move they make will be dicey at best. But really, since when has Skylar been a by-the-books kind of guy?

Like frosting on a cake, Jason Hough’s spin off from his Dire Earth Cycle series, this next duology is off to a flying start! Non – stop action, its mission impossible to survive, but guts, determination and that human will to survive may even the odds. If not, just remember whose side Skyler and crew are on and hope they find one more trick up their sleeves to buy them time.

If you haven’t stepped into any of Jason Hough’s tales, you have no idea what you are missing as he takes us to the stars and beyond!
