Aurora Renegades: The Complete Collection
**2nd trilogy in the AMARANTHE series (Sidespace, Dissonance, Abysm + bonus content)**
It is a time of accelerating technological change & shifting allegiances as the old rules fall away & the old balance of power is upended. A new world rises--one of unshackled AIs, indestructible starships, ethereal quantum spaces and potent new weapons--and the race is on to determine who will control its future.
When faced with its greatest challenge, will humanity rise to triumph or fall to ruin?
Humanity is saved. But its troubles are just beginning.
To achieve their extraordinary triumph over the Metigen armada, humanity put aside its myriad of conflicts & united against a common foe intent on annihilating civilization. In victory, unparalleled peace & prosperity are theirs for the taking--if they can keep hold of them.
When the secrets behind the Metigens' defeat escape the shadows, the people who won the war find their lives in danger. Facing anti-synthetic terrorists who want them dead, power-hungry politicians who want them chained, & a rapidly dwindling number of people they can trust, the Prevos--individuals & AIs sharing a single body--must take their fate into their own hands.
51 Portals. 51 Universes.
Intent on learning the purpose behind the Metigens' elaborate multiverse network, Alex Solovy, Caleb Marano & Valkyrie embark on a gripping journey through the network's portals, each one leading to a universe not their own. In a mosaic of spaces inhabited by fantastical aliens & worlds both beautiful & deadly, they will be forced to question everything they thought they knew, including the nature of life itself.
Know this: you need not be afraid. They own the fear. They fear us because they believe we are powerful, and they are correct to do so.
The technology behind Project Noetica is on the loose. Prevos are spreading across the galaxy. Now two opposing but inexorably related forces threaten to plunge the galaxy into chaos. The Order of the True Sentients believes Prevos are monsters who endanger humanity, & it intends to destroy them by any means necessary. Underworld despot Olivia Montegreu, now a radically enhanced Prevo, is its doomsday warnings made flesh.
As society splinters from within & the Earth Alliance falls to reactionaries, a formidable new player emerges on the galactic stage, one not afraid to do whatever it takes to protect all sentient life--human, Artificial & Prevo.
The Metigen surged forward to engulf her in light. I see you, Alexis Solovy.
Killers & saviors. Deceivers & protectors. Destroyers & creators. Could the Metigens truly be all these things? The search for answers leads Alex & Caleb to the most shocking revelation of all--the true face of the enemy.
In the quest to be the masters of their own fate, will humanity rise to become liberators or follow the path of their ancestors into darkness?
Alex Solovy & Caleb Marano risked everything to learn the hidden purpose behind the Metigens' multiverse portal network, but nothing prepared them for the answer. Humans are a genetic recreation of the Anaden, dictators & overlords of the master universe. Aurora is a recreation of their origins created by the Metigens in a desperate gambit to understand their enemy & find a way to defeat them.
Aurora's future hangs in the balance as the Earth Alliance goes to war with itself over the right of synthetics & Prevos--human/AI hybrids--to exist. Terrorists sow chaos in a wave of bombings & assassinations. The next evolution of the human species will not be so easily defeated, but they must move quickly to win the day, because the true enemy is closing in faster than anyone realizes, & they--humanity, the Metigens & the trillions the Anadens enslave--are all running out of time.
