Nepenthe Rising (sample) John Triptych
In the far future, humans and other spacefaring races have settled in hundreds of worlds via the use of faster than light technology. Across these star systems, two major factions are locked in a cold war of uneasy peace: the technocratic Union and the genome-harnessing Concordance, each side waiting for a sign of weakness in order to launch a war against the other. The starship Nepenthe is a pirate vessel, her rough and ready crew loyal only to one another. Led by the enigmatic Captain Dangard, the cat-like alien Commander Creull, Zeno the synthetic, and the dashing, unorthodox Lieutenant Garrett Strand.

The amphibious, methane-breathing natives have a unique culture that precludes conflict with the human settlers of the planet, and for over a century peace has prevailed. But something has changed. The discovery of a dead human tourist amongst the native aliens creates a growing animosity. As the discord between the two races grows, ruthless power brokers take advantage of the ensuing turmoil to grab the reins of power.
