COVER REVEAL – THE ARACHNE SERIES


This is exciting. Two books in as many days, and they are both related, so we are featuring both of them in this post. We hope you enjoy the forthcoming releases by Christopher L. Bennett, Arachne’s Exile, and The Arachne Omnibus, which includes not only both books in The Arachne duology, but also the three existing short stories in that timeline and a special rendition of the author’s height chart for the aliens featured in the books.


Arachne's Exile 6 x 9

What a Tangled Web…

When the colony starship Arachne unwittingly destroyed a deep-space habitat of the Chirrn, her crew committed themselves to a lifetime of penance to repay their debt. But a brutal act of vengeance has now forced them into exile in a distant part of the galaxy.

Drawn into a cosmic conspiracy spanning millennia, the colonists learn that the Chirrn’s ancient choices have exacted a terrible toll on human history. Now, their only way to win true freedom may be to carry out a perilous theft aboard an extraordinary megastructure orbiting a neutron star.

Will Arachne and her crew pull off the heist of the millennium? Or are they being manipulated into committing a far more awful crime… one for which all humanity could pay the price?
