The suspenseful sequel to The Bantam is here!

An engineering failure has left Ehli stranded between the layers of reality. Her only companion is BEETL—a scarab drone programmed to terminate any iscillian who endangers the ship.

Ehli definitely qualifies.

She must repair the ship’s disabled gate drive to free them from dimspace. But once she does, will she be free to search for her homeworld, or will BEETL’s deadly protocols activate the moment she fails to set course for an impound dock?

When Ehli inadvertently involves another iscillian in her trouble, it’s not just her own life she’s risking.

The rebellious engineer must solve both moral and technical quandaries before she destroys another crew.

Praise for The Silent Fringe

“RJ has such a creative imagination!! I have become completely obsessed with all her work and own every book. Her style is so descriptive you can feel the emotions of the characters. Her books are hard to put down. I go to read a chapter and relax, but end up finishing the book instead. You won't be disappointed.” — Kim Rose
