After the Crown


The adrenaline-fueled, Star Wars-style sequel to Behind the Throne, a new space adventure series from author K.B. Wagers.

Former gunrunner-turned-Empress Hail Bristol was dragged back to her home planet to fill her rightful position in the palace. With her sisters and parents murdered, the Indranan empire is on the brink of war. Hail must quickly make alliances with nearby worlds if she has any hope of surviving her rule.

When peace talks turn violent and Hail realizes she's been betrayed, she must rely on her old gunrunning ways to get out of trouble. With help from an old boss and some surprising new allies, she must risk everything to save her world.

    This debut series from K.B. Wagers continues to surprise and impress me with her story-telling ability and political intrigue on a level that most established authors don't even have. In the first boo...

    This second installment of the Indranan War far exceeded my expectations. While there were aspects I enjoyed more than it's predecessor, my personal feelings about political intrigue-style novels play...

    There's no let-up in the action in this second volume of K.B. Wagers' science fiction adventure "The Indranan War." That's both a good thing and a bad thing. It's a good thing because it keeps the adr...

    The follow up to “Behind the Throne” which you do need to read first. After the trauma of the events in the first book, Hail Bristol is now Empress, but the Indranan Empire is in disarray, under a...

    Four stars for pure entertainment value. Perhaps a little saggier than its predecessor in places, and the gender theme feels shallow this time around compared to, say, Ann Leckie's genuinely 'strange-...

    (This is a duplicate review of Books 1 and 2.) A gritty adventure driven by politics and many forms of injustice that starts in book one (Behind the Throne) when gunrunner Cress wakes up in a pile of ...

    Behind the Throne by K. B. Wagers was one of the best debut novels I’ve read and one of my favorite reads of 2016 period. It was with both excitement and trepidation that I started reading the seque...
