An assignment on a backwater world turns deadly for a combat vet and her AI tank. Military SF with heart and humor from up-and-coming author Marisa Wolf.
Sometimes the only way forward is to burn it all down.
Talinn Reaze and Bee serve as “Breezy,” part of the United Colonial Force’s elite Artificial Intelligence Troops. Trained for full integration since before Talinn’s birth, they exceeded expectations and became one of the premier heavy tanks, leading assaults on several fronts of the long war against the Interstellar Defense Corps.
When they’re thrown to a backwater base without cause, boredom becomes their main enemy—until the world falls out from under their treads and they begin to question everything they’ve ever known.
As they orient to their new reality, they have a decision to make: Uphold the status quo, or risk burning civilization to the ground?
Talinn and Bee always did have a fondness for fire.
About the Author
Marisa Wolf is a second-generation nerd whom started writing genre stories at six. At least one was good enough to be laminated, and she's been chasing that high ever since. Over the years, she's taught middle school, been headbutted by an aligator, earned a black belt in tae kwon do, and finally decided to finish all those half-finished stories in her head.
She's currently based in Texas, though she lives in an RV with her husband and their two absurd rescue dogs, so it's anyone's guess as to where in the country she is.
“Beyond Enemies is a masterful (and at times gut-wrenching) examination of the nature of love and loyalty, cleverly disguised as a non-stop military adventure with a healthy dose of intrigue and mystery.” — Kacey Ezell
“Marisa Wolf’s talent as a storyteller takes center stage as she deftly weaves an enthralling tale of intrigue and discovery. . . . Beyond Enemies is a stirring, evocative novel of the bond between those who soldier together, be they real or artificial, biological or synthetic.” — Kevin Ikenberry
