Blade of the Reaper:Halek Cain’s journey has only just begun.
In search of answers to both his past and his future, Hal and his newly formed crew must overcome obstacles unlike anything they’ve ever seen.
Hal needs repairs, and there’s only so many places a Reaper can find them.
Far across known space, hidden inside an uncharted slip tunnel, a hidden Reaper facility may hold the answers Hal needs.
But the Union would rather the dead stay buried…and they’ll kill to keep their secrets.
“I was also aiding and abetting a teenage runaway wanted by the Union because she was full of super-secret genetic research derived from the Lex program. And my ship was stolen from the Union fleet.

“But I wouldn’t have if the Union hadn’t planted evidence blaming them for my father’s death and the disappearance of my mother and sister. Stop being difficult and let me vent.”
“It should have been twenty-three murders, but six survived their injuries—two instances of gunshot wounds, an uncountable number of stab wounds across all six survivors, and one man thrown from a building,” X-37 continued.
“You’re making me sound like a psychopath,” I said, inwardly relaxing as the confrontation continued. This was something I’d learned on Greendale. I thrived on confrontation. It made me feel like me.
I got bored traveling one slip tunnel after another. But life was pretty decent, almost good, sort of. Definitely better than being on death row. “
