Stephen Bates is desperate. Paid by a foreign superpower to leave Earth and sacrifice his life, he finds that ritual suicide isn’t that simple when the planet he lands on erupts into civil war. He and local war hero, Titus Sirocco, struggle to discover who’s trustworthy and who’s gunning for them. As two different wars rage around them, will Stephen and Titus find what’s worth dying for, or will the rebels choose their fate first?

And what’s with those shapeshifters?

Excerpt:

The world disintegrated around Titus Sirocco in a crescendo of heat, shrapnel, and cacophonic screeches.
“Pit!” he screamed as he collapsed. Part of the door had become lodged in his leg, and pain poured through his veins. He cowered as rubble showered down on them. He flailed and grabbed Kelton’s leg. Kelton looked back at him wildly. “Get out of here! Get every-!”
Whump! The second explosion smashed the weakened building from within like a firecracker in a clenched fist.
When Titus opened his eyes, he saw Kelton staring at him from a few inches away from where he lay cheek down against the stone path. Titus yelled at him over the din. “Get the kids out, I’m fine!”
Kelton didn’t respond. He didn’t even blink. Kelton never blinked, no matter what was thrown at him.

READ MORE

Desperate to get away from the collapsing lab, Titus forced himself up on his knees, his injured leg twitching, and offered a hand to his friend. Only then did he see the chunk of masonry that had struck Kelton’s head. His friend’s stony composure would never again be shaken.
At the scream of twisting metal, Titus looked upwards. The building loomed farther and farther over his head. Then It fell.
