Mordena Dawn Series in Vazdimet

Novels

The past isn't the only thing that won't stay dead.
  Hiding from his violent history as a revered Void necromancer within the Sparnell Confederation, single father Shane Lawrence has finally built a quiet life. On the freehold planet of Baden he can pour his energy into the only thing that now matters: the safety and upbringing of his precocious son, Jake.
  All too soon, the Confederation targets Baden for annexation, confronting Shane once more with his treasonous past. Worse, the invading force is led by none other than Shane's manipulative former mentor, Admiral Kydell.
  Shane's every instinct screams to run, to hide Jake even further from Sparnell – but Baden is home. This time he could choose to make a stand and defend the entire planet, not just his son. But that means turning to the very skills he swore he'd leave behind…
 
Shane Lawrence has inherited a problem.
  When the Turncoat Armada surrendered, no one considered the future well-being of its crew. Determined to fulfill this unexpected obligation, the necromancer sets forth to find a refuge for his emotionally battered military fleet, turning his gaze to the uninhabited planet of TR-75.
  But there's a catch. TR-75 has already been claimed - by the planet herself. "Janikk" whispers her name on the winds, stirring up the native wildlife to decimate all incursions with vengeful distrust.
  Resolving to succeed where others have failed, Shane's team embarks with a different priority, one focused on respect for the ancient spirit said to haunt the coveted world. They soon discover winning her favor requires facing the ghosts of their own pasts.
 
Ambitions of Atonement Bookcover
Sometimes the biggest threats are from the closest allies.   Necromancer Shane Lawrence has set his sights on none other than the Phoenix Assembly, Baden’s underground resurrection network once helmed by his deceased partner, Feels. In the fae’s untimely absence, the Phoenix Assembly has fallen under the control of an enterprising and mysterious new leader. Nightbird has since expanded the Phoenix Assembly’s reach, moving beyond its roots to cast its shadow over every illicit corner of Baden.   But while Shane remains focused on building a new future by atoning for his past ruthlessness, his partner has been harboring feelings for the way things used to be, fracturing his trust and his emotions to achieve their own goals.

When the hidden former-Sparnelli still loyal to Kydell finally reveal themselves and their intentions, Shane Lawrence is faced with his most critical mission yet.
 
Coming Soon: 2023   The untold story of the founders of the Mordena, their military careers, and their efforts to survive - or escape - Admiral Kydell and the Sparnell Armed Forces.
