This Week’s New Releases

Title: Pilot’s Apprentice
Series: Diplomat’s Apprentice Book 2
Release Date: 02/05/2024

Join the circus, see the galaxy. . . to Anwyn this sounded like a great adventure!

Anwyn Owens won her place at a prestigious starship pilot’s program on Earth and graduated with honors. But nothing in the curriculum could have prepared her for reality when she followed the advice of her uncle’s old friend and took a job as assistant pilot for an intergalactic circus.

The circus people became friends, she was learning new skills, and she was definitely seeing more of the “less civilized” parts of the galaxy than she might have if she’d remained with her politically prominent family.

Or maybe more of an adventure than Anwyn expected.

Not everything was running smoothly. The owner was ill, while the manager seemed to take an instant dislike to Anwyn. And what exactly was the manager doing on his late-night trips off their ship on various planets, anyway?

The circus had its own secrets, but now those secrets were about to blow up on them when a police force from the League of Free Planets becomes involved, along with Anwyn’s prominent uncle . . . and the team of special agents she’d met through him months ago.

Everyone is converging on the circus and Anwyn and her new friends are going to need all the help they can get!

If you’re looking for action, adventure, found family, family ties, and light humor, this book is for you!
