It’s been 250 years since we discovered the vast web of wormholes, created by an alien race, linking a series of planets. Worlds where, with a little genetic tinkering, humans could thrive. No one thought about side effects until it was too late. Now laws prevent further tampering—but not everyone follows the law. The Protectorate used their military might to enforce these laws.

For Veena, a military cipher decoder, these wars are more than her job – they’re the centre of her existence. She knows a secret: the alien race that created the wormholes may not be gone, and pose a threat.

And even worse, she knows that her own daughter is one of “the enemy”. Born with telekinetic powers, seven-year-old Molly is a mutant who must hide her true nature, or face extermination.

But when an accident reveals her child’s powers, Veena’s worst nightmare comes true. The military snatches Molly—to turn her into a weapon, and use her power to change the face of the galaxy… or destroy it.

Now, Veena is on the run, trying to save her child. Nowhere to hide, no one to trust. She can’t give up. The universe is on the brink of destruction, and it is up to her to stop it all from escalating and falling into the madness of a Fractured Orbit.


  • The Expanse meets Embers of War in this engrossing space opera with intricate and expansive world-building and captivating characters.

    - Si Clarke - Goodreads Review

  • A surprising science fiction story that takes the reader on a very mysterious and action-packed adventure. The background plot is captivating, we do not see the pages scrolling. It depicts a family separated despite themselves and trying to face the danger. The main characters are very successful, surprising and endearing. The secondary characters aren't bad either. I personally liked the ex-military Baker. This is a very nice discovery for me and I can't wait to read volume 2. I recommend this great science fiction adventure to discover.

  • It was one of those books that was really difficult to put down when one needed to work or sleep.
