The Book

Renegades by S.A. Mason
Book 1 of The Renegade Series
Genre: science fiction

About Renegades:
Elora Pertin spent her life trying to please her father, an esteemed General for the Empire.

When he convinced her to leave her quiet life as a scientist to advance a secret project for the Emperor, she had no idea what she was getting into. The seemingly innocent projects she engineered were actually being used to develop a genocidal weapon. After uncovering the Emperor’s plot, Elora had no choice but to act.

Elora finds herself fighting for her life against the Empire she once served, abandoning everything with only a handful of friends and an unlikely ally—the Emperor’s deadliest assassin. Will he prove himself true as her protector, a loyal servant of the Empire, or a romantic distraction? With the law and assassins searching the star system for them, Elora and her team are determined to accomplish their mission . . . or die trying.

Back in her room, Elora tried to come up with another plan. If her father couldn’t—or wouldn’t—help, she had to find someone else. Just finishing and going home was not an option. She tried to focus on the weapon, but was preoccupied with thoughts of her father. What was he involved with? How could he involve her in the development of an illegal weapon? He had been her rock and best friend since her mom died when she was so young. If she couldn’t trust her dad, whom could she trust?

She had just closed her eyes to practice the meditative techniques she learned on Naruta when she was suddenly pulled out of bed to her feet. She felt the strong arms of a man on either side of her head. Instinctively, she tried to jerk his arms away because she was sure he was about to break her neck. Her head was pulled so far to one side she could feel the muscles in her neck tearing apart. Then he stopped.

Elora could barely see the mirror in her peripheral. The man’s black monochromatic attire made him hard to see in the dark room, but she could make him out against her body. He was tall with shaggy dark hair, slightly curly on the ends. He had a strong jaw, and as she moved up his face, she saw he was looking at her in the mirror. His eyes were dark—almost as black as his clothes. Just as suddenly as he pulled her out of bed, he released her.

  1. Female warriors are the best!

  2. Thank you for hosting! (from Virtual Book Tour Cafe)

  3. The part I like the most is the various colour combination. It's very eyecatchy yet it doesn't hurt the eye. I don't really like how the futuristic gun is drawn, though.

  4. Nice cover. Makes Elora Pertin look dangerous.

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway. I love finding new authors to read. Fingers crossed to win.

  5. I love the galaxy like background on the cover! Very unique!

  6. I like the colors of the cover and that awesome gun. It tells me right away this is a SciFi story.

  7. Awesome excerpt and thanks for the giveaway!:O)

  8. I like the starburst at her belly and how it is open to interpretation as to whether it is coming from her or ending in her. The gun looks a bit clunky.
