Skirmishes ebook cover

Diving fans and the Diving uninitiated have a lot to revel in this week.

Skirmishes, the fourth novel in the Diving Universe, is now available for preorder on Kobo and Audible. The official release date is Sept. 17.

Diving Bundle ebook coverThe Diving Bundle, including the six novellas leading up to the latest novel—Diving into the Wreck, The Room of Lost Souls, Becalmed, Becoming One with the Ghosts, Stealth, and Strangers at the Room of Lost Souls—is now available on Kobo.

And the first three novels in the series—Diving into the Wreck, City of Ruins, and Boneyards—are now available for sale in ebook outside the US and Canada and will be in print shortly in those regions, as well.

So, if you haven’t yet met Boss and her crew, now’s the time to catch up. And if you have, you’ll want to get a copy of Skirmishes in your hands the second it becomes available. Here’s what you’ve got to look forward to:

The answers Captain Jonathon “Coop” Cooper and the crew of the Ivoire seek lie in the Boneyards. But they must wait for Boss and her team to dive it, explore the wrecks, and piece together what happened in that faraway place.

Boss loves the challenge. Thousands of ships, centuries of history, all play to her strengths. In her absence, she trusts Coop to defend the Nine Planets Alliance against the Enterran Empire.

But an encounter from Coop’s recent past shows up to haunt him, an encounter he never told Boss about, an encounter that could threaten her future, his life, and the fragile peace between the Alliance and the Empire.

RT Book Reviews sums up Rusch’s latest Diving novel nicely in its four-star review: “A combination of first-person and third-person narrative and flashback segments makes this a complex and compelling story. It’s like having three tales in one, with an added peek into the bad guys’ activities, all of them intriguing, classic science fiction. It leaves the reader eager to explore this universe again and see what will happen next with these characters.”

I couldn’t agree more. I loved this one, and I can’t wait for the next one. And believe me, I’ll be bugging the author for it. 🙂
