"Aftermath can be compared to a spy/post-war novel set off-world. There's some mention of advanced technology but the story moves along based on the strength and interaction of the two main characters, Jacquel and Rheia. I had trouble putting down and finished it within a week...." Amazon reviewer
Read the thrilling conclusion to the epic scifi Hathe trilogy.
Jacquel has just spent years as an undercover spy battling the Terran invaders of his home world. Now the war is over and the Terrans routed, but Hathe has been left divided and hurting. Some one has to fix it, and who better than a decorated leader of the Resistance. Jacquel is sent back into battle, but this time he fights to restore his home.
It won’t be easy, even for the man dubbed the most charming hero of the Resistance. Years of oppression have left their mark on every dirtsider who stayed behind. And what of the Hathians who fled to the moon? The greed of a few for the sparkling jewel of the colonial worlds threatens to destroy everything when they return.
So, Jacquel’s bosses decide he needs some help.
A gifted diplomat, Rheia asn Postrova spent the war off-world, embroiled in twisted games to protect the secrets of Hathe. Talk, promise, beg; whatever it took to stop the other worlds betraying Hathe’s schemes to the Terrans. She's more than paid her dues to her home world. Yet just when it seems she is free to seek what peace she can, she is sent to the last place she ever wanted to visit and ordered to help a stubborn man build bridges instead of walls.
Together, they must find a way to heal their home.
But Jacquel has lost too many already. Can he risk losing—or loving—one more?
And Rheia has secrets of her own.
