Karina Sumner-Smith’s DEFIANT and Michael J. Martinez’s THE VENUSIAN GAMBIT.

Courtesy of Skyhorse, Karina Sumner-Smith’s second novel, DEFIANT, and Michael J. Martinez’s third, THE VENUSIAN GAMBIT.

Pity I haven’t read either of Martinez’s first two, because I’m out of the habit of being able to pick up book three and not mind how little I can follow along.
