The Nova Incident (#3)

Previous: The Aleph Extraction (#2) | Next: The Armageddon Protocol (#4)

When a bomb explodes in the bustling Commonwealth capital city of Salaam, responsibility is quickly claimed by an extremist independence movement. But after a former comrade, an ex-spy with his own agenda, is implicated in the attack, Simon Kovalic and his team of covert operatives are tasked with untangling the threads of a dangerous plot that could have implications on a galactic scale. And the deeper Kovalic digs, the more he’ll uncover a maze of secrets, lies, and deception that may force even the most seasoned spy to question his own loyalties.


"Moren’s meaty storytelling capitalizes on Kovalic and his crew’s complex relationships and improvisational teamwork and buzzes with well-earned surprises. Moren proves there’s plenty more life in this series with an entry that satisfies in its own right and sets things up nicely for the next installment."

Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review!

"Moren spins an intricate spy story hinging on technology and character depth to draw the reader along. The Nova Incident will keep readers on edge as the team works through relatable trust and relationship issues."


"[A] high-octane, cloak-and-dagger adventure from start to finish, ending on a cliff-hanging that will have me watching for the fourth instalment like a meerkat on lookout."
