Lacuna: The Ashes of Humanity

Book 4, Lacuna

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Humans thought that they could stand amongst the older races. They believed, in their hubris, that the perils of interstellar travel could be mastered within a single generation. That they would be spared the wrath of the Toralii.

Now humanity lies in ashes. The cradle of our civilization, Earth, is nothing more than a charred husk, a dead world in an empty solar system in an unremarkable corner of the galaxy.

The war is over.

We lost.

Captain Melissa Liao and the remaining band of Humans, numbering barely in the tens of thousands, hold the future of their entire species in their hands. They must settle a new world, encounter friends and enemies new and old, and plant the seeds of hope in the ashes of humanity.

Lacuna - The pinnacle of sci-fi books

The Lacuna books are quite possibly my favourite sci-fi books out of hundreds that I've read. The interactions between characters and character development is done very nicely, and the story is extremely interesting. The books are a quick but satisfying read.

I recommend this book series to any sci-fi fan!
