Truce at Bakura
Balance Point
Exiled from her own world as a traitor and an apostate, Lady Firebird must return and be confirmed as an heiress to her royal family if a bloody civil war is to be averted. But returning is perilous. Her husband’s powerful enemies have already tried to wipe out his Messianic family, sparking a war that could decimate dozens of worlds. Firebird must choose how best to serve her new God before the pride that is her heritage destroys everything she loves.
Forced to forsake her royal heritage, Lady Firebird now faces new and powerful enemies. Firebird is pregnant with twins when her new husband, Brennen Caldwell, is left as the only heir to ancient messianic prophecies. Meanwhile, on another world, Firebird’s sister defects to the enemy camp and is made a prisoner. Brennen’s superiors ask him to try to rescue her, and Phoena’s desperate husband travels light-years trying to enlist Brennen’s aid. But Brennen is not tempted to comply … until a divine dream sends him exactly where he does not want to go.

When Ming Dalamani awakens from twenty years of suspended animation, she recalls only fragments of her former life: the life she led before she was arrested by the governing interplanetary corporation, Renasco, for a now unremembered crime. Relocated to an alien world far from the only home she has ever known, Ming serves a powerful Renasco employee to repay her debt. But daily she lives with deadly threats …  and in a universe where even her own past is a mystery, Ming must decide where her loyalties lie.
Enclave Publishing has re-released <em>One Mind’s Eye</em> with a stunning new cover and edits. If you’ve only read the Firebird novels, you might try this one!

The human settlers of the Concord worlds are slowly rebuilding the ecosystems and civilizations ravaged by the alien Devastators, who disappeared as abruptly and mysteriously as they had attacked. But now politics sabotage the recovery process as a prosperous world threatens secession, raising the specter of a pernicious war of humans against humans—and carrying with it rumors of a secret alliance with an enemy even more potent than the dreaded Devastators. Yet one human may be able to turn the tide. On the planet Antar, a damaged young woman struggles to recover her health and independence. Found submerged in an artificial reality—drugged by sensation, wasting away, with no memories and no past—Llyn Torfinn now stands at the threshold of adulthood and at the gateway of her deadliest challenge ever: to learn her true identity and destiny. For if Llyn cannot come into her own, and quickly, all of humanity will pay the price.

Kathy’s science fiction novel <em>Shivering World</em> has been re-released by Enclave Books with stunning new cover art.

When Gaea Consortium offers Graysha Brady-Phillips a tour of hazard duty on a raw pioneer planet she leaps at the chance, even though her predecessor died—a victim of either the savage weather outside the domes or the fanatic population within. But Graysha isn’t on Goddard just to collect triple pay. She’s trying to save her life. The colonists’ radical—and illegal—science just might offer Graysha a cure for the genetic disease that’s slowly starving her at the cellular level. But Goddard’s terraforming pioneers, pursued by the Eugenics Board for gene tampering and battling Gaea Consortium for their very survival, are naturally suspicious of outsiders—especially someone connected to the two organizations that are trying hardest to destroy them. The settlers think Graysha’s a spy. Graysha thinks the settlers are trying to kill her. They’re both right. And the fate of their planet hangs in the balance.
These critically acclaimed novels deftly chronicle one courageous woman’s spiritual and physical battles and the eternal consequences of her struggle--not only for herself and Brennan Caldwell, the man she loves, but also for the worlds she seeks to save. With her own people seeking her sacrifice, Lady Firebird finds herself swept toward an exciting but perilous destiny. Capturing the imaginations of readers of all genres, the complete story is now offered in this 3-in-1 volume. Fans of science fiction and fantasy from a Christian worldview and readers who simply love great storytelling will be thrilled by the thoughtful themes and intriguing plots of this compelling trilogy.
Times have changed for the telepathic Sentinels in the realm of the Federate Whorl. Persecution sends these genetically altered people fleeing to their sanctuary world, but a shipboard disaster exposes High Commander Brennen Caldwell to fatal radiation. Medical student Meris Cariole ends up stranded, an unwelcome outsider, at a sanctuary she never meant to invade.
The desolate world of Mikuhr is home to a proud people now on the verge of distinction.
<p id="yui_3_8_1_1_1405492552076_1866">Conflict explodes when apprentice priest Kiel Caldwell arrives to investigate rumors of new spiritual revelation, but he is kidnapped by a demon-possessed telepath who thinks he might be a predicted messiah. And when Kiel’s loose-cannon military brother Kinnor arrives to investigate, a local leader with revenge on her mind threatens to bring ruin on them all.</p>
<p id="yui_3_8_1_1_1405492552076_1862">It’s up to returning Mikuhran diplomat Wind Haworth to head off a conflict that could have spiritual, political, and military repercussions-but no one has foreseen the consequences of introducing the Mikuhran Wind Haworth to the Federate military Sentinel Kinnor Caldwell.</p>
Lady Firebird was born to the royal family of Netaia, but her life is expendable. Honorable suicide is the highest calling she could hope to attain. When she is chosen to lead an attack on the neighboring non-combatant planet of Veroh, her death is expected. Instead she is taken prisoner during the battle and is held by the enemy.

With her own people seeking her sacrifice, Firebird must choose between two worlds before she can carve out her new destiny. This is the story of Lady Firebird’s personal battle and its eternal consequences, not only for herself but for everyone around her, and especially the man who loves her.
