The Liftsal Guardians
Eighteen-year-old Sloane is a deadly fighter, but she is about to meet her match, and he’s not exactly human. Sloane thought she could solve any problem with a blade—that is until she is kidnapped and taken through a shimmering rift to a strange world covered in snow. The frozen land she finds herself in is protected by a mysterious race of warriors and haunted by evil, ancient creatures that lurk in the shadows.
Karin Makos lives a lie. Genetically engineered from birth and raised in a scientific compound to gain unnatural powers, she has since escaped and built another life, hidden from those who created her. For her, the chance to pilot a small-time scrounging vessel to remote corners of space is the dream. After years on the run with her sister and enduring the constant paranoia of living planet-side, going off-radar gives her exactly what she wants: freedom.
