Blue Shift

Author: Jane O’Reilly

Second Species: Book One

2187: Earth is cold, dead and divided. The rich hide away from reality while the rest will do anything to survive. Humanity have only one hope: reaching a habitable planet. But getting there means travelling in large numbers through alien-held space, something that’s politically and practically nearly impossible. Yet for some, fighting their way through space is just a way of life . . .  

Jinnifer Blue is a rich girl on the run. An expert pilot, she apprehends criminals on behalf of the government and keeps her illegal genetic modifications a closely guarded secret. But when a particularly dangerous job goes south, leaving her stranded on a prison ship with one of the most ruthless criminals in the galaxy, Jinn realises that the rich and the powerful are hiding more than she’d ever guessed. Now she must decide if she can trust her co-prisoner – because once they discover what the prison ship is hiding, she definitely can’t trust anyone else . . .

'Great space adventure - amazing heroine and very enjoyable story. I love Elizabeth Moon's books and this was really similar, just really fun to read with excellent characters.' Christina Swan, Amazon.co.uk
'This is a rollicking, sexy, intriguing space-adventure filled with believable characters and enough tension to keep you up way past your bed time. Highly recommended.' YRoseRed, Amazon.co.uk
'Such a refreshing and engaging read! I was looking for something different and I got it. The clever futuristic plot had me gripped and the romantic element, though subtle at the start, is enthralling. It has the politics of Star Wars and the intensity of Logan's Run. I loved the world building and love the premise of what is going to be a fabulous series. Brilliant!' Tracey, Amazon.co.uk
