​Kaine's Reparation
Book 3 in the Shattered Empire Series
Sneak Preview...

Hayden Kaine hit the auxiliary thruster and was sucked into his chair hard enough to rattle his teeth. His shuttle’s frame vibrated under the stress of struggling to escape the planet’s gravity well.

He had a good lead on his pursuers, but they made up for it now. He couldn’t make himself believe the acceleration of their ships. Human physiology shouldn’t be able to withstand the kinds of G-forces they pulled. He realized they were being piloted by AI’s, which would make his escape all the more difficult. Tau Ceti, like most of the systems visited, had achieved some impressive technological advances.

A plasma burst bloomed metres from his port side. They did not miss. They were forcing him in a particular direction to capture him.
