This is the start of a new series called The Dred Chronicles. This is a spin-off of the Sirantha Jax series, it is set 40-50 years after that series ends. Perdition is a floating prison ship that the Conglomerate sends their most dangerous criminals. They are confined for life , endlessly to orbit around a barren asteroid.
Dresdemona “Dred” Devos controls one of six of the territories in Perditiotion. She is bordered on both sides by two power-hungry sadists. She always has to be on her guard from attack. A steady influx of new recruits are needed to replace the fallen in the constant battles that are fighting to keep them at bay. Death is the only escape.
Hailed as the Dred Queen, a few of her trusted advisors go to meet the newest convicts. Only one catches Dred’s attention. Jael was sent to Perdition until the Conglomerate scientist decide what they want to do with him. He was born in the lab to try to create a better soldier. He was the only one out of his group that survived. He was a Merc and killed on order. The lab called him a reject with their testing, and sent him to Perdition.
They team up with Silence, who controls another section of territory. Only the strong shall survive. This is an action packed story. I give it a 4/5 stars.
