The cover for Capture the Sun is starting to roll out to retailers, so I guess it got approved, lol. I’m usually the last to know, and I’ve been sitting on this for months, so I’m super excited that I can finally share. 🎉 Behold Lexi and Nilo!
The sun, the city, Luna… I love it all! In case you’ve missed it, this is the third and final book in the Starlight’s Shadow trilogy, and it’s publishing in June 2023. But preorders are up now, if that’s your jam. :)
Acclaimed author Jessie Mihalik returns with the thrilling conclusion to her Starlight’s Shadow trilogy. An intergalactic thief must join forces with the charming teleporter who stole her last job—and may now be her only hope for saving her former crew.
As a recovery specialist, Lexi Bowen’s jobs typically require more trickery and thievery than honest work. Her former captain might not approve of her flexible morals, but stealing artifacts for rich assholes pays the bills, and Lexi’s had enough of war and death. The FHP left her to die once; she doesn’t plan to give them a chance to finish the job.
Unfortunately, her latest contract takes her to Valovia itself—and right back into the orbit of Nilo Shoren, a Valovian teleporter who already cost her one payday and nearly stole her heart.
Armored against his clever charm, Lexi plans to get in, get the job done, and get out. But when her former crew goes missing in Valovian space, Lexi will have to work with Nilo to figure out what happened—and stop it—before the galaxy’s two superpowers can use the disappearance as an excuse to return to war.
Look at all three book together!! Aren’t they gorgeous??? 😍 I’m so thankful to the team who made them happen, which leads me to my next point…
On a less fun note, the HarperCollins Union workers are currently on strike for better wages because HarperCollins has refused to negotiate with them for nearly a year, and I support the striking workers 100%. The union is NOT asking readers to boycott HC books, but if you like books by HC authors and want to help the people who make them happen, here’s a thread of ways you can.
