Announcement: Phase Shift, by Jenn Burke and Kelly Jensen

Phase ShiftQSFers Jenn Burke and Kelly Jensen have a new sci fi book out:

Zander and Felix’s relationship has always pushed boundaries—personal and professional alike—but their love and commitment is stronger than ever. So strong that Zander’s ready to ask commitment-shy Felix the question of a lifetime when he’s interrupted. The Chaos is being hacked, and crucial, top secret information about the project that created Zander—and his fellow super soldiers—has been leaked.

Neither man could have expected the enormity of what’s discovered at the end of the data trail: an entire colony of super soldiers run by the very doctor who changed Zander’s life forever. And now she needs them both—Zander to train her new crop of soldiers, and Felix’s new crystalline arm to stabilize their body chemistry.

With help from the unlikeliest of allies, Zander, Felix and the Chaos crew must destroy the project and all its ill-gotten information. But when the team is split up and Felix is MIA after a dangerous run, galactic disaster is a very real possibility…and Zander may have missed his chance to ask for forever.

Excerpt

Felix met Nessa exiting a lift tube from the maintenance level.

“Where are Elias and Zed?” he asked.

A scowl pulled at the delicate lines of her face. “On their way back from the main market.”

“They lost him?” Qek had relayed a short holo capture from one of the security cameras. Maybe when Marnie and Ryan were back online, they could clean it up and pin an identity to their hacker.

“Apparently he shifted.”

“He what?”

“Phase-shifted. Zed had a hold of his pack and he dematerialized right the fuck out of there.” Ness rarely swore.
Goose bumps prickled the back of Felix’s neck and shoulders. “Qek wasn’t able to follow on from…” From where he’d disappeared?

“He slipped into a camera dead zone behind the promenade. From there, he could have gone anywhere.”

His bracelet chimed once. Felix thumbed open the channel. “Yeah?”

Zed’s voice crackled through. “We lost our perp in the market—”

“Because he phase-shifted?” Felix exchanged a look with Nessa. Surely she’d meant something else?

Zed was the last living member of Project Dreamweaver. He should be the only human being in the galaxy who could mimic the stin ability to shift out of phase. The stin poison running through his veins had killed the rest of his team. Zed had only survived through the intervention of the Guardians.

“Can we talk about it when we get back to the ship?”

“Sure. Sooner I get back and start purging systems, the better.”

Felix closed the connection and ran his fingers down the smooth skin of his crystalline wrist and over the back of his perfectly formed hand. It freaked him out to have Zed in his thoughts, to be in Zed’s. But in only four months, he’d come to rely on it. Nothing soothed his anxious ripples as well as Zed’s deep pool of love and commitment. Not for the first time, he wished their connection extended beyond touch.

Nessa touched his wrist. “I’m sorry Zed’s whole scene got interrupted.”

Felix shrugged. “It’s not as if he needs to buy me strawberries to get me into bed. I’m a sure thing.” A creepy creep at the back of his skull suggested Zed had been trying to do more than simply seduce him.

Nessa opened her mouth.

“You know what this means, right?” Felix said. “Someone other than Zed phase-shifting?”

Closing her mouth, Nessa nodded. “Let’s get back to the ship.”

Author Bio

Jenn and Kelly met in 2009 through a mutual infatuation with a man who wasn’t real. After all but crashing the video game’s forums with daily dissection of their obsession, they started writing together, discovered they really liked writing together and began plotting stories in worlds of their own creation.

The CHAOS STATION series aren’t the first books they’ve written together, and they’re pretty sure they won’t be the last. As long as their so-called smartphones keep making autocorrects that trigger brainstorming sessions, they’ll have enough character ideas and plots to keep them writing for years to come.
