The Deep

Title Card The Deep

Welcome to the Back Corner of the Universe, Where There’s One Way In, and No Way Out!

A MATURE AUDIENCES TITLE

The Deep resides in the backwater of space, a system full of human explorers, thrill seekers, colonists, and criminals. A century ago, a wormhole was discovered and humans came rushing through, as if this were the cosmic American west. Some sought to make a fortune, some sought to make a new start, as fertile planets awaited them.

But there were beings sleeping in the dark.

The Deep was not empty. Massive shadow-like giants called the Dark Things populated an asteroid field a billion miles wide that cut off the Deep from the rest of the universe, and hidden beneath the surface of planets were the Creatures, hideous beasts out of nightmares that once awoken, didn’t stop until you or it was dead.

Into the Deep comes a young military cadet named Harpsichord. Drugged and exiled to the Deep aboard a prison ship, Harp falls in with some career criminals. As she tries to find her way home, she falls under the covetous glare of the Warden, who has plans to turn the Deep’s massive prison into a personal army and would very much like a human as powerful as Harpsichord under his control.

Title Card Harp

Book One
Harpsichord & The Wormhole Witches
Written by Mark Bousquet
Available Now
Purchase: Paperback / Kindle

Ever date a guy whose mom thought you weren’t good enough for him? Yes? Then you have something in common with Harpsichord.
Ever have an ex-boyfriend’s mom pay to have your classmates attack you, drug you, put you on a prison ship, and exile you to the far reaches of space where you fall in with a bunch of escaped convicts, become the enemy of a band of witches, fight living shadows and genocidal robots, and get attacked by nightmarish creatures born in the cooling chaos at the origin of the universe? No? Then you have nothing in common with Harpsichord.

Exiled to the Deep, Harp is manipulated and used by those who want to turn her enhanced abilities into a weapon of war. After her prison ship explodes, Harp is rescued by Simon, an ex-Secret Service femme fatale exiled for assassinating a world leader, and captured by Dash, a roguish bounty hunter hired to bring them to the Gulag. Pulling all their strings is the Warden, a man with designs on turning his prison population into an army. He wants Harp as his showpiece, but she just wants to get home and settle up with a vengeful ex-boyfriend and his psychotic mom.

Preferably with lots of punching.

Seems like a lot for one soul to handle, but Harp’s gonna learn this is just another day in the Deep.
