We met Lindsay Cummings way back when we were promoting Insurgent together. We’ve enjoyed her Murder Complex books and we were super excited to check out her new collab with Sasha Alsberg. Zenith is a four part ebook series that just came out this past Tuesday! We’re happy to have Lindsay and Sasha on the blog today introducing us to their story and one of their characters.
There is darkness sweeping across the stars.
Most know Androma Racella as the Bloody Baroness: a powerful mercenary whose reign of terror stretches across the Mirabel Galaxy. To those aboard her fearsome glass starship the Maurader, she’s just Andi, their captain and protector.
When a routine mission goes awry, the all-girl crew’s resilience is tested as they find themselves in a most unfamiliar place: at the mercy of a sadistic bounty hunter connected to Andi’s past and a harrowing betrayal.
Meanwhile, on the far side of the galaxy, a ruthless ruler waits in the shadows of the planet Xen Ptera, biding her time to exact revenge for the destruction of her people. The final pieces of her deadly plan are about to fall into place, unleashing a plot that will tear Mirabel in two.
Andi and her crew embark on a dangerous, soul-testing journey that could restore order to their ship—or just as easily start a war that will devour worlds. As the Marauder hurtles towards the unknown, and Mirabel hangs in the balance, the only thing certain is that in a galaxy run on lies and illusion, no one can be trusted.
From internet sensation Sasha Alsberg and author Lindsay Cummings comes a new serialized space opera, full of action, fantastical intrigue, and steamy star-crossed romance.
For fans of popular sci-fi books and fantasy books for teens such as Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, Wool by Hugh Howey, Truthwitch by Susan Dennard, and A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas.
We asked Sasha and Linsay to introduce us to one of their Zenith Chronicles through an interview. So we hope you enjoy meeting Captain Androma Racella!
We’re so excited to sit down with Androma Racella, the Captain of the Marauder
starship. Androma, known as the Bloody Baroness, has been in the headlines for years, well known for her ruthless work ethic of cutting down anyone who gets in the way of an illegal job well done. The Mirabel Patrolmen have had Andi in their sights for years, but luckily, as the authors of THE ANDROMA SAGA, we’ve been able to convince Andi to send us a few interview responses on a private interface. Here we go!
What is your favorite planet in The Mirabel Galaxy?
If you asked me this three years ago, I would’ve said my home planet Arcardius…but since those bastards exiled me, I would choose a barren wasteland like Marza in the Tavina System. If the toxic planet doesn’t kill me, it would be a nice place. Nobody to exile me for accidents from my childhood.
You use weapons a lot, what’s your favorite kind?
**fires up electric katanas**
How is the boy scene up in space? Any romance sparking up within the stars?
The only boys I know are fiking idiots. Especially Dex. If it were up to me, I’d spend the rest of my life on this ship, far away from him. Actually, I’d like to have him on my ship, so I can send him flying out the airlock.
What is your ideal vacation?
A nice, dark place where my crew and I can kick back with a bottle of Cosmic and forget about life. Also, somewhere that has a great chef. My first gunner Breck has been on me for weeks about that.
Anything else you’d like to share with the Galaxy?
Hit me up if you need a job done. And don’t fike with my crew.
