The Concord Coalition by Kenley Davidson
He was branded a liar, a murderer, and a traitor…
But he may be humanity’s only hope.
As heir to Earth’s most powerful corporation, Phillip Linden had the world — and most of explored space — under the heel of his very expensive boot. But that was before his ambitions and a handful of determined rebels rose up and kicked him in the teeth. Now, after a galactic-sized screw up, he’s been branded a failure and kicked out — of his family, his home, his job…even his planet.
Living under an assumed name on the fringes of human civilization, Phillip is adrift, drowning in his bitterness and loss until he stumbles over a discovery so monumental, it could change the course of humanity’s future. For Phillip, it could be the key to regaining what he’s lost. Or it could be the new beginning he never knew he needed.
Persephone is running away — from her family, their expectations, and the destruction of her hopes for a new life on Daragh. Trouble is, she has no idea what she really wants, except her freedom. Now homeless and jobless, she’s stuck on Concord Five, the busiest space station in a rapidly expanding galaxy, hoping to find work. What she finds instead is a bitter, compelling man in search of redemption, and a mystery that could be their undoing — or their salvation.
