When all other options run out, never let go of your gun.
In a few hundred years, the Algol system becomes humanity’s new home. The question is: Is it a better one? When a crew of arms smugglers botches their latest job, Corps-deserter and crewmember, Aly Erikson, is separated from her brother, the only person she can trust, and left behind to fight for her life. In the aftermath, as she tries to piece together what happened, a crew of roughneck settlers pressgang her into a dangerous mission in the heart of Corps territory. Time is running out to get back everything she’s lost: her crew, her brother, her options. But no one is taking her gun.

Praise for CONTRACT OF DEFIANCE
“Tammy Salyer’s Contract of Defiance (Book One in her Spectras Arise trilogy) is a powerful statement of her prowess as a military fiction author. Her fight scenes are impeccable, her characters three dimensional, and her universe dry and gritty. At times deadly and at others canny, her lead character Aly is smart, strong and someone you can root for. If you like military science fiction you owe it to yourself to get a copy and move it to the top of your to be read list.” ~ Author of Aetna Adrift and The Far Banks of the Rubicon, Erik Wecks
