The latest audiobook in the Alexis Carew series by J.A. Sutherland is now available at Audible: The Queen’s Pardon. This is the sixth book in the popular SFF series, and follows the previous installments, beginning with Into the Dark. Alexis (and Elizabeth) will be back with Book #7 in Fall 2019.
Allies and enemies are not always what they seem.
Trapped on a hostile world, hunted by pirate bands, and abandoned by her fellow captains, Alexis Carew must lead her small band to safety, even though it seems every hand is set against her. Stalked by pirates in the skies above and shadowy alien figures on the planet below, Alexis must convince former enemies to trust her even as she discovers where the tendrils of her true enemies lead.
Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of the latest book in the popular Alexis Carew series by J.A. Sutherland: Privateer, book #5, now available at Audible. If you haven’t yet listened to this swashbuckling SFF adventure series, start with Into the Dark, and continue with Mutineer, The Little Ships, and HMS Nightingale. Be sure to listen to the audio sample of the latest release!
Even with no war on, there are always battles to fight.
A cease-fire in the war with Hanover leaves Lieutenant Alexis Carew on half-pay, in-atmosphere, and with her ship laid up in ordinary until called upon once more for the needs of the Service. She was, at least, lucky enough to be in her home star system when her last ship, HMS Nightingale, paid off, unlike much of her former crew.
She’s left to help manage her family lands, though still with no certainty she’ll be allowed to inherit them. It would be a tranquil, peaceful life, if not for the influx of asteroid miners seeking their fortunes, the uncertainties of her inheritance, and the nagging certainty that her current life is not what she really wants.
She’d give anything to command a ship again.
Alexis Carew fans, take note! The fourth book in J.A. Sutherland’s excellent SFF series is now available at Audible! Elizabeth has been enjoying narrating this series – about a young British female Naval officer in space – since 2015. Other books in the series include Into the Dark, Mutineer, The Little Ships, and the novellas Wronged and Planetfall. If you haven’t listened to Alexis’ adventures, find out what you’re missing by starting with Into the Dark.
For Lieutenant Alexis Carew, it should be the perfect assignment – a command of her own and a chance to return to her home star system.
What she finds is a surly crew, the dregs of every frigate and ship of the line to pass through on the way to the war’s front, a first officer who thinks the command should have been his, and colonial worlds where they believe a girl’s place is somewhere very different than command of a Queen’s starship. Add to that the mysterious disappearances of ships vital to the war effort and an old enemy who seems intent on convincing her he’s changed.
Then there’s the mongoose with an unnatural affinity for her boots.
