REINCARNATION WAR (STAR HOUNDS #5)

The space opera ain’t over till the fat lady sings.

Laura Shemzak isn’t fat and she doesn’t sing. What she does is kick butt!

Alien? Robot? Human? This hot blip-ship pilot is ready to rumble with anything in the galaxy. Even with a sinister planet-killing brain named Harla Zox.

But this adventure finds Laura’s hot butt in a crack. The crew of the Starbow — stranded in a strange dimension — has only thirty minutes to get their starship into gear, rescue Laura from Zox, surrender to the Federation star cruiser sent to destroy them, and stop an all-out interstellar war with the mysterious alien Frin’ral!
