About the Author

K.B. Wagers is the author of the Indranan War trilogy and the forthcoming Farian War trilogy, about the gunrunner empress Hail Bristol. They live in the shadow of Colorado's Pikes Peak with their partner and a crew of poorly behaved cats. They're especially proud of their second-degree black belt in Shaolin Kung Fu and their three Tough Mudder completions. There's never really a moment when they're not writing, but they do enjoy fountain pens and good whiskey.

Reviews

"Wagers achieves a rare balance of action... tension, and quiet moments, keeping pages turning while deepening the portraits of Hail and the friends and foes around her. Fans of the original trilogy will welcome Hail's return, and any space opera reader can easily jump in here."--Publishers Weekly
"Nerve-wracking action on the ground and in space, dark humor, and the characters' til-the-end loyalty to one another... A satisfyingly thunderous end to Hail's quest for vengeance that makes an excellent addition to any SF collection."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Beyond the Empire
"Satisfying... Wagers's high-octane space opera trilogy is particularly appealing for its relationships."--Library Journal
(starred review) on Beyond the Empire
