About Terry Maggert
Left-handed. I like dragons, coffee, waffles, running, and giraffes; order unimportant. I write the Backyard Starship, Halfway Witchy, Messenger, Starcaster, and Shattered Skies series. I don't sleep, but you probably guessed that already.

On a distant world under an alien sun, hunters and their companions—the Rovan—bond in a ritual as old as their civilization. But one of the hunters is missing, and Van, along with his growing crew, knows where to look. Climbing up into the rarified air of the super-rich, Van uncovers a new enemy: The Fade.
And they are as cruel as the stars are many. A gang of heartless killers, the Fade will stop at nothing in the name of profit.
Which is fine with Van, as he’ll stop at nothing in the name of justice.
Tracking his quarry across a dozen systems, Van, Torina, Perry and Icky—along with Zenophir, the new technician—will untangle a conspiracy of betrayal and death. As Van soon discovers, the Fade never lose.
But they’ve never met Van and his crew.

Out among the stars, his cousin, Carter Yost, drags Van and his team into a criminal ring run by the High Doctor- a dangerous con artist with delusions of grandeur. Working from the abandoned world of Pathway, the High Doctor has created a cult, stealing a fortune from the fearful, sick, and scared.
If there’s one thing Van hates, it’s a bully, and the High Doctor has his full attention. But in order to crush the criminal cult, Van needs bigger, better armor—and that comes with a price.
The rarest metals cost money, and that means doing a few dirty jobs in order to pay for the tools of his trade. Van’s got the will. His team has the skill.
Now, he has to find a way. And the way will surely involve war.
His grandfather used to tell him fantastic stories of spacemen and monsters, princesses and galactic knights. Little did Van realize, the old man's tales were more than fiction. They were real.
Hidden beneath the old barn, Van’s legacy is waiting: a starship, not of this world.

Finding Yewlo will be hard, but the search reveals secrets the guild might not survive—secrets about a system so corrupt, it will take Van and his team’s best efforts to untangle the truth.
And they might not like what they find.
On the grimy station known as Halcyon, Van will track and confront thieves who deal in stolen lives, all in order to save a Master who might not have the guild’s best interest at heart. With Sorcerers and Cloaks and every other kind of criminal, Van, Torina, Perry and Icky learn that friends come in all shapes and sizes—and so do enemies.

And Van will find the truth, no matter what the cost.

Following leads across the stars, Van, Perry, and Torina discover the wealthy elite are doing more than just taking fuel.
They’re stealing lives.
But it takes money to make justice, and Van has to work. Torina’s land must be restored, and the Dragonet needs new armor, and Van’s sword isn’t going to sharpen itself.
So Van throws himself into the life of a Peacemaker, where he discovers that doing his job—and doing it well—makes him a target.
He’s got the will. He’s got the sword. And he’s got help. Now all he needs is a little fuel.
And maybe a gun or two.

The Verity are in collapse. Clan Shirna is gone. And all along, the ships of the Cygnus Realm have been pushing back until only the Golden are left.
Or so Dash thought.
With the discovery of two new races and a sphere of stars embroiled in war, Dash hurls the Forge ever deeper into territory where no human can live free. The Golden are no longer merely advisors—now, they are present in the fights themselves, their silver ships gleaming with menace in a war that threatens to incinerate an entire arm of the galaxy.
With mechs, and carriers, and a tough survivor named Jexin, Dash will strike at the first defensive line of an empire older than human history, and with it, set events in motion that can only end in victory for one side and the total destruction of the other.
For Dash, the choice is clear. Only absolute victory will do, and he will spill his own blood to achieve it.
One battle at a time.
With ships of a new design, the Realm will turn outward, striking into territory long held by the Deepers and their unholy creatures, wrapped in technology as old as the stars themselves.
But the universe is shrinking, thanks to Realm scientists and the efforts of Kai and his brethren, who find that secrets still remain in the hidden places where humans store memory, and history—and weapons.
Pursuing Pavel Hu into the darkness, Dash finds the truth about human history, and just what it means to end a war that has raged since before Earth was civilized, and when the sun itself was young.
The Deepers have nowhere to go but ahead, and in their way is the most powerful fleet ever assembled—
But in the final battle for galaxies far and wide, will Dash and his mechs be enough?
Drifting in the intergalactic deep, Dash begins the final push towards peace. From the depths of Realm lore, the Kingsport takes shape, one component at a time.

The space beyond our galaxy is far from empty, and the Arkubators, Deeper worlds, and other secrets begin to reveal themselves as the Realm forces fight their way, gate to gate, into areas never seen by humans.
Dash will journey farther than any other human has ever gone—or so he thinks.
What awaits him is a secret that will change everything humans know about their origins.
Only two questions will remain: Can humanity win?
And at what cost?

Capturing the object, a secret is revealed, and the war, and Dash, will never be the same, for his mission just got a lot harder, and the enemy has changed their face yet again.
With the Kingsport and Anchors under withering fire, Dash will lead his fleet into the teeth of an enemy force that has been lying in wait for a million years, and they will stop at nothing to turn humans into biomechanical servants who drift among the stars, dreaming of a peace that will never come.
Unless Dash can win. And he always wins.
When they discover reports of a missing colony ship, their search will uncover a crime so terrible that the battle lines will be drawn in blood.
