Ker-ris’s mind is free. Free to fall in love again. When vengeful S’lyss comes after Kol-ian, the symbiosis of the mind link threatens the life of both lovers.
Dark lords and sneaky Saurians in the sequel of Technological Angel.

“Slave Traders” (book 3)
It’s impossible to tell the true depth of someone’s feelings.
When Gaurishankar’s ex-girlfriend vanishes, he goes to the rescue, if only to save his own brother. But taking down the slaves market isn’t easy.

Stories set between the fall of the Galactic Empire and start of the Humanoid Wars that will lead the birth of the Federation of Humanoid Planets. The Star Nations learn to be independent from the mighty Sire, which sometimes brings in anarchy (tyrants, dictators, gangsters and other criminals). There will be wars between Humanoids now that the common threat (the Reptilians) is no more. Eventually the Star Nations will set up the Federation to keep the peace among the warring Humanoids.
