Dark Shepherd

by Fred Gambino

Classic Space Opera for the Contemporary Age.

Renowned artist Fred Gambino's debut novel is a  thrilling and deftly told space opera that will have readers on the edge of their seats and leave them wanting more.

Breel is abruptly fired from her dead-end job at the Beach, dismantling junked spaceships – a job she only took to help support her ailing father. She's convinced things can’t get any worse; until people start shooting at her. 

Breel sees her father sacrifice himself so that she can escape, to be chased offworld for a secret she didn't know she possessed. Pursued by agents of the ruthless and politically powerful Church of Second Light, she falls in with the crew of the Scavenger, a rag-tag group of misfits determined to thwart the Church's ambitions, which threaten the future of humanity. Breel finds herself at the centre of events, as only she can locate a mysterious RIP – a wormhole that will leave humanity vulnerable to an ancient enemy – and only she stands a chance of closing it.

“With this novel – a fine piece of fast-paced slam-bang space opera – he {Gambino} shows himself to be as adept with words as he is with images.” – The Financial Times

“Kinetic, sassy, character driven, hard science fiction, galaxy spanning, space adventure – what’s not to like?” – Ricardo Pinto

Dark Shepherd is an enthralling, energetic and pacy example of space opera at its finest. Fred Gambino has shown himself to be as talented a writer as he is an artist.” – SFCrowsnest
