Two warriors—one mission: Survival….

Sergi Lazaroff is a weapons expert and a member of the Russian FSB, also known as Federal Security Service—a nice term for his true profession as a spy. Assigned to the Project Gliese 581g exploration team, his job was supposed to be simple—find out what was in space, retrieve the technology, and return home with it, if possible. When he wakes up on an alien planet, Sergi knows the last part of his mission will be impossible. Instead, he must use his military skills to survive in a world where he doesn’t know the rules.

La’Rue Gant’s search for the mysterious occupant of the pod that landed on the assassin planet of Turbinta quickly turns into a game of predator versus prey. She found what she was looking for—and discovers that the legends may be true when the tables are unexpectedly turned, and she becomes the hunted. What she doesn’t expect is the powerful reaction she has to this man from another world.

When word reaches them that another member of the Gliese’s crew was found, Sergi and La’Rue embark on a mission to save that member at any cost. Caught in the middle of an alien civil war, two fighters from vastly different backgrounds must come together to fight for the survival of the Gallant Order even as the Legion forces close in around them. Can they slip through the traps set up to snare them, or will the Legion Director finally capture not one, but two of the prophesied ancient Knights of the Gallant?


“I’m really beginning to hate you,” she informed him through clenched teeth.

“I can assure you that the feeling is not mutual,” he retorted in a voiced filled with amusement.

La’Rue snorted at his comment. His soft, chuckled response to her disbelief heated her blood while his warm breath brushed against her neck. She tilted her head back when he squeezed her wrist. His thumb hit a nerve in her hand that caused her fingers to go numb. The blaster fell to the floor of the cockpit.

“That is much better,” he murmured, his lips brushing against the warm skin of her neck.

“Are you kissing me?” she demanded, stiffening in surprise.

“I’m simply making sure you are real,” he answered, releasing her.

      Survivor Skills is out! I’ll have to admit, I love the series but wasn’t sure anyone else like it as much as I do. LOL. I have to write the stories though to find out what happens.

  3. Dean M. says:

    Seems like a really neat idea. I’m in the middle of the murderbot series – the first one is called ‘All Systems Red’. It is an excellent read. There are four novellas in the series.

    So this book seems really cool and I love the idea of exploring Gliese 581g. I first learned about Gliese from this article:
    Wish I could go there!

      I am thrilled you are enjoying Project Gliese 581g series. I don’t have a release date yet, I am sorry.

  6. Linda says:

    Are there more books in this series?

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Hi Linda, Yes, I have two more books in the series coming out (Julia and Mai’s stories). 🙂

  7. Linda says:

    This is an amazing read and I cannot imagine that someone would NOT like it. Its almost 12:30am and I just don’t want the book to end.

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Yay!!! I love this series, LOL. I came up with it while going through the McDonald Observatory in Ft. Davis, TX during a Star Party. It is a more grounded scifi then my other series, but that is why I love it so much—it is grittier and the action/adventure, along with the romance, have a different feel. The next two books are Honor Bound and A New World.

  8. Valeria D White says:

    My name is Eva and I live in Sweden. I just love your books! There are fantastic worlds and characters, with very good stories. Above all, I love that characters from different worlds meet each other, it’s magical. The show I’m listening to right now is Project Gliese 581g, and I love it! It’s a little different to other books you’ve written, but so great!
    So exciting that I’ve been listening to all three on Storytel. I hope the last two books in the series come out soon. Would love to hear how it will turn out for all of them. I also love Magic, New Mexico. Such good stories, really hope you will write more in that series as well.
    Thank you for your imagination, and well-written books, they fill my everyday with excitement, romance and many laughs.
    Sincerely, Eva Sangheim from Sweden
