Star Nomad

Book 1, Fallen Empire - Fallen Empire, Book 1

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


The Alliance has toppled the tyrannical empire. It should be a time for celebration, but not for fighter pilot Captain Alisa Marchenko. After barely surviving a crash in the final battle for freedom, she's stranded on a dustball of a planet, billions of miles from her young daughter. She has no money or resources, and there are no transports heading to Perun, her former home and the last imperial stronghold. 

But she has a plan. 

Steal a dilapidated and malfunctioning freighter from a junkyard full of lawless savages. Slightly suicidal, but she believes she can do it. Her plan, however, does not account for the elite cyborg soldier squatting in the freighter, intending to use it for his own purposes. As an imperial soldier, he has no love for Alliance pilots. In fact, he's quite fond of killing them.

Alisa has more problems than she can count, but she can't let cyborgs, savages, or ancient malfunctioning ships stand in her way. If she does, she’ll never see her daughter again.

Fans of Firefly and Star Wars should enjoy this fun, fast-paced new series from USA Today best-selling author, Lindsay Buroker.

Customer Reviews

Excellent series

Any series that ends with a whoopee cushion being a major driver of the plot deserves 6 stars in my book. Great characters, wonderful dialog, delightful humor, along with relevant political and educational commentary. Of course it’s happily ever after in the end, but it’s a twisting, turning unexpected ride the whole way through. Definitely worth the read.

Fun and Funny

After reading this book I immediately bought the next book and just kept going. Now on book 7. Read this series if you enjoy witty banter between a diverse cast of characters. As a bonus, they’re working on saving the galaxy... even if they don’t always want to and whether it wants their help or not! A nice mix of heavy and humor.

Fun series !

Good sci fi series. Author has created a fun universe with a lot of depth. I was very pleased with the read !
