9781595546630: Crescent (Helium-3)


Her motto is "Life is Death! Death is Life!" Can a warrior trained from birth to kill be trusted?

Crescent is a gene-tweaked mercenary programmed to fight to the death. (Trailer at youtube.com/watch?v=Wz5Pw_tm8Yo) When she's captured by Crater Trueblood, a miner turned soldier, she can't understand his kindness. Maria Medaris, once Crater's girlfriend, has become a ruthless competitor in business and in life. When a murderous band of assassins attack, Crescent, Crater, and Maria escape to a lunar ghost town called Endless Dust. To survive they must do more than navigate the desolate moonscape and battle a persistent band of killers. They must decide what--and who--is truly worth fighting for.

From the Author:

Crescent is more than a sequel to Crater. It stands on its own merits. "Crescent" is one of the most interesting characters I've ever written about. The action in this novel never stops. Hang on for a great ride across the dusty moon! Trailer at youtube.com/watch?v=Wz5Pw_tm8Yo
