All hell is breaking loose in the edge-of-your-seat follow-up to Havoc and Perdition from New York Times bestselling author Ann Aguirre…

The prison ship Perdition has become a post-battle charnel house with only a handful of Dred’s soldiers still standing and now being hunted by Silence’s trained tongueless assassins. Forging an uneasy alliance with mercenary commander Vost—their only chance at escape—the Dread Queen will do whatever it takes to end her life sentence on Perdition and keep the survivors alive long enough to cobble together a transport capable of getting them off station.

If Dred and her crew can win the deadly game of cat and mouse, the payoff is not only life but freedom—a prize sweeter than their wildest dreams. Yet the sadistic Silence would rather destroy Perdition than let a single soul slip from her grasp…


“But wait, I’m not done gushing! I still have to talk about the writing. In one word it’s GRIPPING! The dialogue, the descriptions, the action sequences….is there anything that Aguirre cannot do well? I’m so impressed with this series. If you’re looking for an epic sci fi journey that also packs an emotional punch, you definitely need to check this series out. After reading the Dred Chronicles, I don’t think I could ever forget about Dred and Jael’s characters.” Annie @ Under the Covers Book Blog "Breakout is the series ender for The Dred Chronicles by Ann Aguirre and what a finish it was! Aguirre has created a spin-off series from her Sirantha Jax series, that may actually top the original, a rare feat. This is a science fiction series that has everything from bloody battles to tender love scenes and the sympathetic characters in the story, just happen to be a colony of murderers. Now, if that's not unique, I don't know what is! Fantastic ending to a great series." Debbie's Book Bag "Space opera fans, hold onto your seats because The Dred Chronicles are nothing if not a wild ride!" Niki @ The Obsessive Bookseller
