About the Book

There’s a price on her head,

and it has everything to do with the brand on her arm.


Tertian Space Coalition has blessed every planet in the quadrants with high technology, save one: Drosero. But in spite of their tenuous treaty with the ruling clans, TSC has plans for the backward planet. And they’re not alone.

After a catastrophic explosion, Kersei Dragoumis awakens in a derelict shuttle, alone, injured, and ignorant of the forbidden technology that has swept her into a nightmare. The brand she’s borne since childhood burns mysteriously, but the pain is nothing to that when she learns her family is dead and she is accused of their murders.

Across the quadrants, Marco Dusan responds to the call of a holy order—not to join them, but to seek a bounty. Gifted—or cursed—with abilities that mark him a Kynigos, a tracker sworn to bring interplanetary fugitives to justice, Marco discovers this particular bounty has nothing to do with justice and everything to do with prophecy. One that involves the hunter as much as the hunted.

This book has everything: intricate worlds steeped in rich culture and twisted politics, broken treaties, secret prophecies, and heart-stopping revelations that will keep you turning pages long into the night. Kendig delivers a brilliant blend of pulse-punching action, heartache, and hope. BRAND OF LIGHT is the space opera I’ve been waiting for. A masterpiece.
Complex and compelling, with enough intriguing characters to power several novels. An exciting start to a space opera series that promises action, mystery, and romance to come!
With the iron of Machitis in her blood, Kersei Dragoumis is out to prove she’s as fierce a warrior as they come. With kingdoms at war in a galaxy full of strife and intrigue, BRAND OF LIGHT is the first in a science fiction saga you won’t want to miss out on!
I loved every second spent in this complex, beautiful, intense world. Ronie Kendig is a master storyteller.
