Word Branch Publishing Announces the Release of Sons of Amethyst

Stacy Bender’s fourth book in the popular Sav’ine Guard series is now available.

A dark and environmentally damaged planet can hide many secrets including murder and corruption, but does it conceal even more? When the mysterious Sav’ine Guard lurks in the shadows, it is almost certain to be shielding a mystery, and this time their future depends on protecting a strange police detective and his family.

Stacy Bender’s signature style of noir overlaying science fiction offers readers the best of both genres. Her fourth novel in the Sav’ine Guard series continues the story of the elite private army of human/machine hybrids whose loyalty and battleground skills are legendary across worlds. Bender carries on her tradition of weaving suspenseful action, heroism and a little romance into a well-told tale.

To celebrate the release of Sons of Amethyst, Word Branch Publishing will be giving away the original artwork for Hands of Onyx, book two in the series.
