Description

Half-breed human star navigator Jaqi, working the edges of human-settled space on contract to whoever will hire her, stumbles into possession of an artifact that the leader of the Rebellion wants desperately enough to send his personal guard after. An interstellar empire and the fate of the remnant of humanity hang in the balance. Spencer Ellsworth has written a classic space opera, with space battles between giant bugs, sun-sized spiders, planets of cyborgs and a heroine with enough grit to bring down the galaxy's newest warlord.show more

Review quote

"Space battles! Bug ships! A galaxy in peril! This epic, awe-inspiring blend of the fantastic is everything great space opera should be. Chewy, gooey, thought-provoking and above all -- a great deal of fun." --Kameron Hurley"Gritty. It usually means rough and tumble. Spencer Ellsworth has done that, but here, the word gritty also means tangible. Starfire feels real. Jaqi feels real, and man, is she full of grit." --Mary Robinette Kowal"Cozy, classic space opera is twisted in innovative, awesome ways in Ellsworth's debut A Red Peace. Humankind is the nasty invasive alien in space that's about to get its comeuppance, and wow, do the pages zoom by. I impatiently await the next book!"--Beth Cato, author of The Clockwork Dagger"The high adventure and scale of a classic space opera, but witha set of diverse characters with varied motivations and greater nuance." --RT Book Reviews"It'll surely feed your sci-fi hunger."--Wayward Kitsune -Gritty.
