Novel by Blaze Ward

$3.99 available in bundle


Rick Pine—veteran, ex-convict, and now, chef and part owner of a French bistro—needs a cigarette and about twenty hours of sleep after working all day at the restaurant.

He does not need this cute Japanese-American woman coming into the bistro and asking for him by name. Particularly not returning his coffee mug. The one he lent the alien. Just before she blasted off in her spaceship.

And he really does not want to know what sort of trouble this woman has gotten herself into. However, like the last time, he has no choice.

“Imposters” introduces us to Rick Pine and the fascinating universe of The Collective in this fast-paced near-future science fiction novel.
