Void Black ShadowThe Voidwitch Saga (Volume 2)
Corey J. White
Corey J. White's space opera Voidwitch Series continues: Mars Xi returns in Void Black Shadow, sequel to Killing Gravity.
Mars Xi is a living weapon, a genetically-manipulated psychic supersoldier with a body count in the thousands, and all she wanted was to be left alone. People who get involved with her get hurt, whether by MEPHISTO, by her psychic backlash, or by her acid tongue. It's not smart to get involved with Mars, but that doesn't stop some people from trying.
The last time MEPHISTO came for Mars they took one of her friends with them. That was a mistake. A force hasn't been invented that can stop a voidwitch on a rampage, and Mars won't rest until she's settled her debts.

Praise for Killing Gravity
“This novella feels like a blockbuster, full of imaginative worldbuilding and fight sequences.” —Publishers Weekly
“Rip-roaring space opera with a side of magic mushrooms! Fans of Firefly will love Killing Gravity.” —Will McIntosh, Hugo Award-winning author of Love Minus Eighty.

“Solidly fun space opera from start to finish.” —Locus
“Killing Gravity, by Corey J. White, is an intense combination of rip-roaring pulp space opera action and cyberpunk noir sensibility.” —James L. Cambias, Nebula Award-nominated author of Corsair.
