Episode 1: Hot Pursuit
Micah Ariesis is a wanted man. Pursued across the star system by the Huntress, helpless as his brethren are brought down one by one, he’s got no options left but to gamble his future on a sketchy revolutionary plot aimed at the empire’s heart, but the mystery surrounding the Huntress’s legendary skill puts danger to a much closer heart—his own.
Treska’s latest bounty is her last for a reason. Not even her incomparable skills can keep her target from finding cracks in her convictions. It’s going to take all her training to protect her principles against his persuasive onslaught.
About The Huntress
She always gets her man…
Treska Sivekka is the best Vice Hunter in the entire Union of Civilized Worlds, but her latest bounty might put her right out of a job. She’s on the hunt for the last of the psypaths, whose psionic gifts are thought to have caused devastating alien attacks on a dozen worlds. The last psypath, Micah Arestes, is the only remaining chink in the armor of the Union.
Acquiring her target starts Treska on a journey not back to the safety of the Civilized Worlds of the Union, but its wild edges, where she begins to question all she’s known—about the attacks, about psypaths, and about herself. As she unravels the shocking mystery of her own origins, she must question everything she believes until she finally hunts down the truth.
