Nexus by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings is the sequel to Zenith, a book that has been on my TBR for quite a while now that I just haven’t gotten to. I would suggest, though it’s included below, that you don’t read the synopsis for Nexus unless you’ve already read Zenith since it does seem a little spoilery. But, the basic way I’ve thought of these books is space pirates. And while that description is definitely super general and not 100% accurate, I am so here for it.
Her ship is gone, her crew is captured and notorious mercenary Androma Racella is no longer the powerful Bloody Baroness, but a fugitive ruthlessly hunted across the Mirabel Galaxy. The bloodthirsty Queen Nor now rules most of the galaxy through a mind-control toxin and she’ll stop at nothing to destroy her most hated adversary.
Andi will risk anything, even her precious freedom, to find a cure. Stranded with her unlikely ally, Dex, on the unforgiving ice planet of Solera, their plan to infiltrate a black-market city proves dangerously irresistible.
Back in Arcardius, Nor’s actions have opened Mirabel to invasion. As Andi’s crew fights to regain their freedom, Andi and Dex discover a threat far greater than anything they’ve faced before.
Only by saving their mortal enemy can the crew of the Maraudermake one last desperate strike to save the galaxy—unaware that a shattering, centuries-old secret may demand the most wrenching sacrifice of all.
