Series Summary

It it always darkest before the dawn. For 713 years the scattered survivors of the Xeno-Federation war have known this. Sol and the core star systems are gone.
The scattered survivors on far flung worlds and space colonies must try to survive a universe gone mad. They have spent that time scratching an existence out of whatever they could. Those trapped aboard surviving space colonies waited until the parts failed and life support was snuffed out.
But a free trader with an all female crew are about to change things. Fleeing a pirate they will stumble across a relic from their distant past. When that lifepod opened they will begin the journey back into the light of a New Dawn.
