S.E.Gilchrist's Legend Beyond the Stars comes out on 1st January 2013with Escape Publishers. 

Earth is struggling with disastrous climate changes and an exploding population. When the United Earth Corporation is offered a proposition from alien traders to transport the first wave of colonists to a new-earth in exchange for precious metals and minerals, they accept with few questions asked. But the traders have another agenda.
Alana Knight, a captain in the United Defence Force, whose only child was still-born, has focused on her career. She volunteers for this mission, seeking redemption from a disastrous mission where soldiers died under her command. On board the space ship, she learns of a war raging for supremacy of the Seven Galaxies and possession of a renewable energy source that powers intergalactic space travel. A power that can be transformed into a terrible weapon. The former Darkon Guardians are determined to fight to the death rather than reveal the secret of conversion.
When the colonists are betrayed and sold, her mission is re-defined. Nothing will stop her from keeping those in her care safe and from finding a passage home. But her new captor is nothing like she expects.
Embroiled in a cycles long war and the consequent unleashing of the retro virus, Commander Tarak El Rajan of the Darkon fleet, is human, male and equally determined to retain his payload. With his race on the brink of extinction he is under strict orders to transport all females to the planet Isla for research purposes. His duty is to ensure the continuation of his race and the defeat of his enemies, despite his weariness with war and death.
In a world of uncertainty, where the wrong decision could mean the death of an entire race, the last thing either of these two soldiers expects, or needs, is to fall in love.
A love that may be destroyed by a fanatical ruler and a dark, dirty secret.



REVIEWS
The Uncrowned Kin (Book #2 Chronicles of King Rolen's Kin) by Rowena Corey Daniells received and an awesome 9/10 review from Fantasy Book Review!
"I want to start off by emphasizing that The Uncrowned King reads just like its predecessor. Now, I do not know what Rowena Cory Daniells does with the words but the writing style feels natural and easy to follow and produces a book that you can read away in just a few hours. It is quite magical and the 400 pages that are in The Uncrowned King feel more like 150. On top of this is the fact that there are multiple story lines woven into it and it is just brilliantly put together."
