    Offworlders are only worth the price on their heads.

    After three decades as a Pervenio Corporation Collector, chasing wanted offworlders and extinguishing protests throughout the solar system, Malcolm Graves doesn't bother asking questions. So long as the pay is right, he's the man for the job. But his latest assignment doesn't afford him that luxury.
    A high-profile bombing on Earth has the men who sign Malcolm's paychecks clamoring for answers. They force him to team up with a strange, augmented partner who's more interested in statistics than instinct, and ship them both off to Titan to hunt down a suspected group of extremists: Titanborn rebels who will go to any length to free their home from the tyranny of Earth's corporations.
    Heading into hostile territory, Malcolm will have to use everything he's learned to stay alive. But he soon realizes the situation on the ground is much more complex than he anticipated...and much more personal.

    Check out the thrilling first book in a gritty and innovative science-fiction series perfect for fans of The Expanse and Blade Runner. You can also grab it on Audible performed by the award-winning RC Bray, narrator of The Martian.

    My Review:

    By Rhett C. Bruno
    Bruno’s latest tale is Sci-Fi fantastic, a mix of dystopian and space crime drama, a read that will resonate with die-hard and novice space odyssey fans alike. Introducing readers to a new world is tricky but he does it with ease using an interesting world building concept of space travel and interplanetary settlement and a dialogue that is catchy, edgy and techy enough without overdoing it. His protagonist is likeable, believable and kick-butt awesome in an anti-hero way and his co-stars rock the galaxy and add depth to the novel. Plus the fast-pace, the interesting twists and turns and the dynamite ending makes this unforgettable.
    On the 300th anniversary of Earth’s near destruction from an asteroid an act of terrorism erupts during holiday celebrations killing and maiming innocent citizens. It’s not the United Sol Federation (USF) government who calls the shots but the big corporate giants like Previnio Corp. and they in turn call their “collectors” (hired guns) to quell the disturbance.
    Malcolm Graves is one of those elite guns, a 30-year veteran, he’s jaded and hardened but he always answers the call to action. He just hopes he’s still got what it takes to get the job done especially now that he’s questioning his competence and his new mandatorily assigned partner.


    • "Bruno uses skillful worldbuilding and rising tension to construct a fast-paced, action-packed tale of the far future."--Publishers Weekly
    • "A relentless sci-fi thriller with characters that leap off the page and a chilling ending that will leave you breathless."--Nicholas Sansbury Smith, USA Today bestselling author of Hell Divers and the Extinction Cycle series
    • "[Rhett C. Bruno is] a master at world building, character development, and the art of storytelling. . . . Tragedy, noir, ethical action saga . . . Whatever it is, Bruno spins it with consummate skill."--Perihelion SF
    • "A powerful story of oppression and discrimination, expertly painted in the colours of a science-fiction future set among the moons of Saturn."--By Rite of Word
    • "Part socio-political thriller, part space opera, part coming of age story... I really enjoyed Kale's story."--SFcrowsnest
    • "I loved this story. It had lots of drama, action and twists and turns in the story... Definitely recommend as a read."--MP Book Reviews
    • "A kick-butt, non-stop sci-fi space odyssey set in our solar system on Saturn and her Moons."--The Reading Frenzy

    About the author:
    I am the USA Today Bestselling Sci-Fi/Fantasy Author of the CIRCUIT SERIES (Diversion Books, Podium Publishing), BURIED GODDESS SAGA (Aethon Books, Audible Studios) and the CHILDREN OF TITAN SERIES (Aethon Books, Audible Studios). I am also one of the founders of the popular Sci-fi / Fantasy platforms, Sci-Fi Bridge & Fantasy Bridge.
    I have been writing since I can remember, scribbling down what I thought were epic short stories when I was young to show to my friends and family. When I reached high school, I decided to take that a step further and write my first novel, which is still sitting in a drawer somewhere.
    While studying architecture at Syracuse University, I continued to write as much as he could, but finding the time during the brutal curriculum proved difficult. It wasn’t until I was a senior that I decided to finally pursue my passion for Science Fiction. After rededicating myself to reading works of the Science Fiction authors I always loved, (Frank Herbert, Timothy Zahn, Heinlein, etc.) I began writing “The Circuit: Executor Rising”, the first part of a space opera series.
    Since then I’ve been hired by an Architecture firm in South Norwalk, CT. But that hasn’t stopped me from continuing to work on all of the countless stories bouncing around in my head. I also recently earned a Certificate in Screenwriting from the New School in NYC, in the hopes of one day writing for TV or Video Games. I am represented by Evan Gregory of the Ethan Ellenberger Agency.
