Includes the first 3 (of 5) books in the Recompense series:


In a nation built upon lies, the truth is a dangerous secret.

Born into Capernica's lowest social tier, Jack Holloway gambles on the one chance available to advance—testing into Military caste. But if she fails the stringent physical standards and her friend Will succeeds, she won't be allowed to see him again for twenty years. Meanwhile, Capernican girls are vanishing. Jack's score lands her on an investigative team where she is to serve as bait. The case leads back forty-seven years to a series of high-profile cover-ups linked to Capernica's tumultuous formation. But nothing prepares Jack and her partner Ethan for the face that emerges from the lawlessness of the past. 


The Provocation's over, but the Recompense has just begun.

Jack and her teammates have stopped the widespread abduction of Capernica's teenage girls and neutralized the operatives living among them. Now it's time to enter the portal and take the fight to the Bruelim. Even as they prepare, disgruntled Lowers hang on the brink of revolution. Their rebellion has the potential to split Capernica along its caste lines just when the nation should be pulling together against a common enemy. Meanwhile, Jack remains crazy hopeful that upcoming Military maneuvers might once again throw her into contact with her best friend Will, while Ethan, her capable Axis partner, strongly hopes they do not. Neither she nor Ethan are prepared for the testing their partnership is about to undergo. Or the revelation of their most immediate threat.


A slave in Brunay. A revolution in ashes.

Jack was supposed to assassinate Governor Andromeda Macron and revert Capernica back to Capernican control. But she failed, the revolution lies in ashes, and the one person she loves more than anyone in the world has betrayed her. Alone in Brunay, she becomes an anonymous cog in the vast Bruelim slave economy, where callous wardens aren't the only threat to her safety. Then Jack discovers the key to freeing Capernica from Bruel aggression forever. But even if she managed an escape, how could she leave Will in Brunay, trapped in the body of a Berkam?

The Recompense series contains high stakes, sweet romance, and unforgettable characters. Got time for a binge read? You've just found your next dystopian indulgence.
