Once a Gunrunner- now heir to an empire!
A gun smuggler inherits the throne in this Star Wars-style science fiction adventure from debut author K. B. Wagers. Full of action-packed space opera exploits and courtly conspiracy - not to mention an all-out galactic war - Behind the Throne will please fans of James S. A Corey, Becky Chambers and Lois McMaster Bujold, or anyone who wonders what would happen if a rogue like Han Solo were handed the keys to an empire.
Quick, sarcastic, and lethal, Hailimi Bristol doesn't suffer fools gladly. She has made a name for herself in the galaxy for everything except what she was born to do: rule the Indranan Empire. That is, until two Trackers drag her back to her home planet to take her rightful place as the only remaining heir.But trading her ship for a palace has more dangers than Hail could have anticipated. Caught in a web of plots and assassination attempts, Hail can't do the one thing she did twenty years ago: run away. She'll have to figure out who murdered her sisters if she wants to survive.
"Political intrigue and space battles: two great tastes that taste great together! You've got an Indian-inspired culture on a new planet with a matriarchal government, a smart-mouthed rebel princess who spent years as a gunrunner before returning home to take her place on the throne, a vast conspiracy about to bring on civil war, and lots of family squabbles resulting in assassination. Seriously. What's not to like?" Maegan
