About The Book

“I am crazy for this author and you will be too. If you’ve been searching for an edgy, provocative sci-fi series to completely submerse yourself in, I think you’ll enjoy this one.”

When you’re the most coveted asset in the known worlds, you better be ready to run from all of them.

Rise Aria is living a lie. She expects the elite Echelon Military to bring her in. Everyone like her gets brought in eventually. But Rise is not like the rest. And when the Echelon get their dark magic hands on her, she will discover a secret.  Unfortunately, her enemies will too.

As Rise fights for her life at the cruel hands of Arc, the ridiculously powerful Echelon leader, an unlikely ally reveals himself from within their lower ranks. But the lower ranks of the Echelon are still some of the most major league, dark forces of the known worlds. Why should Rise trust him? And more importantly, why should she trust the Earth politicians he’s maddeningly hellbent on delivering her to?

On the run, caught in a web of secrets, lies, power plays and black ops that span the cosmos, Rise must come to terms with who she is, who she can trust, and what she will do. The people pulling at her strings have their own ideas about what they want to go down. But this coveted asset has ancient, cosmic knowledge pumping through her veins, and in the end, she just might surprise all of them.

Edgy and action packed, Rise Siren Five is a pacey, spicy, intrigue filled read.

Praise for Rise Siren Five:

“The world the author has created for us – gloriously rich, vibrant and mysterious – the perfect setting for this action packed Sci-fi fantasy. If you’ve been searching for an edgy, provocative sci-fi series to completely submerse yourself in, I think you’ll enjoy this one.”

“Oh my God I love this book. I love the feeling of discovering a new author whose writing you just connect with straight away. Rise Siren5 is a sexy sci-fi thriller but so much more besides. There is a real intelligence in the writing and enough thrills and intrigue that I was hooked from the first page to the last.”

“Finding a book with well written and engrossing Sci-Fi is difficult enough, but having one with great action and sexy sleekness is for me a real treasure.  A great plot that unfolds at a manageable pace and larger than life characters make this a book you won’t just enjoy once, but will want to go and read again right after.”

Chapter 1

Debbie beeped.

Deep Space Debbie. Debbie for short. If Debbie beeps once, the arrays have picked up something with serious potential to be interesting.

If Debbie beeps three times, the arrays have picked up something real good.

When he first started working here, Nate Reynolds Jnr jumped into action at every solitary Debbie ding.

Tilds scoffed at him. But his eyes still tracked him, furtive and hopeful, all the same.

Debbie had just dinged three times. Tilds was maintaining his aura of cool detachment, but his eyes were glued to Nate at the OBO tracker.

OBO. Off-World-Black Ops. Uber level of security clearance required to be anywhere near this thing.

Son-of-a-gun. This guys a genius.Nate rested his hands on the desk and peered closely at the incoming stream.

What?Tilds said, aiming for casual. Almost making it.

What?he repeated, just a tad impatiently when Nate didnt answer right back.

Cooper Pierce R9,Nate replied, easing back from the screen. Hes done it. Hes off Moethiica.

Tilds whistled. Well wont that make the powers that be happy. Golden boy on his way home again. Son-of-a-bitch.He picked up the phone. Ill call it in.

Whos picked him up?Tilds queried Nate, while he cradled the phone against his shoulder. Can you see them?

He shook his head at the non-answering phone and held the receiver straight out in front of his face. Hello? Earth to OBO Incorporated. Important news to report. Favorite son on his way home. Anyone want to freaking answer me?

No, I cant see them, but.Nate leaned in close to the display again. Fuck,he said quietly.

What? What?Tilds slammed the phone down and clumsily negotiated the exit route from his desk. Nate Reynolds Jnr, was a gentleman and a scientist.

And he never swore.

The bar had now been officially raised above real good.

Holy fuck.Tilds skidded to a stop beside him. Unlike Nate, Tilds swore often. He was as much of a scientist. Definitely not so much of a gentleman.

Hes got her. Hes freaking got her,Nate said eventually.

I dont believe it,Tilds breathed.

Believe it,Nate replied. He pointed to the screen. Shes right here in front of us. Heading fast our way.

Tildsphone rang loud and sharp. They both jumped.

Fark. Ok,Tilds exhaled deeply, cranking his neck and rotating his shoulders.

Tilds, just answer the phone. Tell them hes got her,Nate rolled his eyes at him. Such a drama queen.

Tilds reached his desk and picked up the phone.

This better be good, Array Boy.It was Jonassen. An arrogant bastard. But around Off-World-Black-Ops, you got that here and there.

Oh, its good, Jonassen,Tilds smirked. Its more than good.

Yeah, what?Jonassen asked skeptically.

Golden boy. Everybodys favorite, long off-the-grid, Off-World Agent, has gone all exit stage left on Moethiica on us.

Pierce is off? You can see him?Jonassen was excited now. And the best was still coming to him.

Oh yeah hes off,Tilds replied. And hes bringing you a little friend to play with Jonassen.

Cut the crap, Tilds and spill it. Whos in transit with the Agent?

Siren5, asshole. Siren5.

There was dead silence. Youre shitting me,Jonassen said.

No, I am not. Patching you to the Debbie data. now!He hit the last key with a flourish.

Oh. My. God,was all that Jonassen could say.

The most coveted freaking asset in the cosmos, Jonassen,Tilds gloated. The most coveted freaking asset in the cosmos and we got her. Little low tech, bumbling baby earth just outplayed the lot of them. Yeah baby!He pumped his fist excitedly and then recovered himself.

Nate looked up from Debbie to smile at him.

Jonassen you still there?Tilds put on his best serious voice. Dont you need to go tell someone?

Yeah, yeah. I do and Im out,Jonassen replied, shaking himself. He went to hang up and paused.

Hey Tilds, you think shes hot as in smoking hot?

Of course, shes hot,Tilds replied. Shes a freaking Veil Portal opening Siren, Jonassen. Sex, wings and magic baby. Oh yeah.

Cooper Pierce is a lucky bastard.

Cooper Pierce is a freaking legend. And professional beyond all reason. He aint gonna tap Priority One, Man. No matter how hot she is. She got important work to do down here.

Jonassen grunted, I would.

Tilds laughed. And that is why Cooper Pierce is on his way back from OBO Mission Moethiica1 with said Siren in tow, and youre still working a desk job.

Fuck you, Array Boy.

Aw, sorry Jonassen. Im officially off the market. Gotta save myself for all that Off-World pussy thatll be coming through, once that little cosmic doorway opens

Tilds!It was Nate. Looking pointedly furious.

Gotta go. Gotta go. Go tell the big brass, Jonassen. Later.

Tilds hung up the phone and managed to look sheepishly apologetic. Sorry Nate.He held up his hand to him. Cant blame a man for getting a little distracted though.

Nate shook his head and turned back to Debbie. Youre depraved Tilds. This is huge. This is history. This is the gateway to the denied worlds. And we got her. We got the key. Which means we control it. We own it.

No way anyone is going to cheapen this by trying to get laid by the Off-Worlders who come through it.

Tilds shook his head. Nate, Nate, Nate. I admire your sentiment, brother, I really do. But I wouldnt count on it.

He winked at Nate and picked up the phone to make the next call.
