Relic 1: Blurb

Title: Company Assassin

Book 1 in the Relic Trilogy

It’s Duff Roman’s eighteenth birthday, but no one is lighting candles. 

Turning eighteen in the orphanage on Kalecca means starvation for those who aren’t hired into a Family. Outside the Family compounds lies the jungle. And in the jungle lies death. And Relics—the only real currency on Planet Kalecca.

The orphans are Duff’s family, and he’s sacrificed everything to keep the orphanage running, even his chance to move on. Now, at eighteen, he has no choice but to leave. Without him to bring in extra money, the orphans will starve under the Company’s control. Duff’s only chance to save them is to find a spot on an independent crew and hopefully find a Relic to sell.

A seemingly chance encounter with Z, leader of the most feared independent crew offers Duff his opportunity to score a Relic. And offers Z a chance to relieve the guilt he feels over his past.

But a company assassin has plans to lay waste to Duff’s future, and the orphanage as well.

  1. Love the blurb. The only real currency is Relics? Is there a lesser value currency on Kalecca? Nice planet name by the way. Enough is here to get my attention. Duff helping his orphanage family by running with Z, and an assassin the has it in for 18 year old Duff. Z has a guilty past. Well done Claudia.
