The High Hunt

The Orion Guild, no. 1

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


For centuries, paid hunters in the famed Orion Guild have pursued their prey using the ancient technology of gunpowder and bullets, even as the rest of civilization has taken starships across the galaxy to new planets. On these planets, pilgrims often encounter animal problems they are ill-equipped to handle, and The Orion Guild is called to intervene. Humanely if possible, with deadly force if necessary.

Named by Kirkus Reviews as a Best Book of 2013: SF/F

"Energetic, edgy sci-fi with a Game of Thrones bent. Explosive action in the far future."
-- Kirkus Reviews

"Connell fearlessly explores the baser instincts of humanity in this gritty, concisely constructed sci-fi adventure. Successful simply as an action novel, The High Hunt also does what some of the best science fiction has always done: it illuminates important truths about humanity."
-- Foreword Reviews (5 out of 5 stars)

"Lansing's choices will test everything he has come to know as truth in this powerful saga, recommended for any who love hunting dramas, stories of confrontations between strong resourceful individualists, and science fiction."
-- The Midwest Book Review
