The publishers blurb says this book is a thrilling new down-and-dirty military science fiction series set in a world of mercenary actions and covert operations. Think Suicide Squad for lovers of Aliens. There are not many reviews out yet but one that did catch my attention said that it had really good world building, an inventive story line and well developed characters so this definitely looks like one to get a hold of.
It's only available in Audiobook and on the Kindle at the moment but the hardcopy should be availble in October 2017.
The Bastard Legion: Book 1
by Gavin G. Smith
Four hundred years in the future, the most dangerous criminals are kept in suspended animation aboard prison ships and "rehabilitated" in a shared virtual reality environment. But Miska Corbin, a thief and hacker with a background in black ops, has stolen one of these ships, the Hangman's Daughter, and made it her own. Controlled by explosive collars and trained in virtual reality by the electronic ghost of a dead marine sergeant, the thieves, gangsters, murderers, and worse are transformed into Miska's own private indentured army: the Bastard Legion. Are the mercenaries just for fun and profit, or does Miska have a hidden purpose connected to her covert past?
