When all other options run out, never let go of your gun.

In a few hundred years, the Algol system becomes humanity’s new home. The question is: is it a better one? When a crew of arms smugglers botches their latest job, Corps-deserter and crewmember, Aly Erikson, is separated from her brother, the only person she can trust, and left behind to fight for her life. In the aftermath, as she tries to piece together what happened, a crew of roughneck settlers pressgang her into a dangerous mission in the heart of Corps territory. Time is running out to get back everything she’s lost: her crew, her brother, her options. But no one is taking her gun.

Praise for Contract of Defiance:

“Arm yourself for a riveting quest on the galactic fringe in Contract of Defiance.” ~Motley Chronicles

“With Contract of Defiance you feel every punch, every bullet.” ~Radiant Attack

“Salyer’s writing is tight; she knows how to write and she knows how to soldier. I just bought the second book.” ~Amazon Review


“In Contract of Defiance you hit the ground running, thrust straight into the action, and it never really lets up.” ~Goodreads Review

“One of the most well written books I’ve read this year.…Grab a copy of this great read and dig in.” ~Author Ron McCabe

“Fast-paced and fun sci-fi space adventure with a great protagonist, Contract of Defiance by Tammy Salyer starts with a running gun fight and doesn’t let up until the explosive conclusion.” ~Author Scott Whitmore

“Contract of Defiance is a top-notch addition to the Sci-Fi action/thriller genre. It contains the kind of action that makes it hard to turn off the light and go to sleep.” ~Amazon Review

“I was completely impressed by this book. From the first page you are sucked into an action-filled science fiction adventure that keeps you on the edge of your seat, just dying to find out what happens next.…I cannot recommend it enough.” ~It is a Bookish Kind of Life

Tammy is an inveterate verbarian, who spends her day surrounded by the written word, both hers and others’. As an ex-paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division, her stories are often as gritty as a grunt’s pile of three-week-old field gear. Her military science fiction novel Contract of Defiance is the first book in the Spectras Arise Trilogy and debuted to acclaim in Spring 2012. Contract of Betrayal is the second in the trilogy, and the final book, Contract of War, completes it (out in July 2014). When not hunched like a Morlock over her writing desk, Tammy runs and bikes silly miles in the playground of Southern California and spends an inappropriate amount of time watching Henry Rollins videos on YouTube. Feel free to visit her blog and sign up for her newsletter {http://eepurl.com/Trzh1} to be the first to know of contests, new releases, and special events you might enjoy at {www.tammysalyer.com}, or stop by and say hi on Twitter {@TammySalyer}.
