NO SHELTER BUT THE STARS is the powerful tale of two women from enemy cultures forced into a fragile truce on an inhospitable moon. The story explores not only the outer limits of galactic imperialism but the inner reserves of the heart, mind, and spirit.

Kyran Loyal is the last heir to the lost throne of a forgotten planet, the figurehead of a nomadic people fleeing the galactic tyranny of a brutal regime. Davia Sifane is the unrecognized daughter of an imperial despot.

When happenstance pits them against each other in battle, neither expects the outcome: they are the only two people to survive. Marooned on a barren moon, their only hope is to rely on each other, and what they learn will either kill them or change the galaxy forever.

“The stakes couldn’t be higher in this vivid, gripping tale of survival featuring two powerful women, implacable enemies, marooned in a lethal environment with the fate of worlds hanging in the balance. What a story!”

Katherine V. Forrest, trailblazing author of Daughters of a Coral Dawn

“Set against a well-crafted backdrop of brutal political and colonial machinations, Black shows us the possibilities that can take root and flourish in treacherous ground, and the impact that individuals can have on the course of an empire. No Shelter But the Stars is a story that will resonate long after the final page is turned.”

—Andi Marquette, author of The Far Seek Chronicles
