Tarver still has nightmares about the night, six months before the Icarus crash, when he rescued civilian researchers held hostage by brutal mercenaries. Now he and Lilac reconcile his memories of that night with the truth uncovered after the crash.

Short connects first two novels. Includes preview chapter from This Shattered World.
I now a some readers don't like novella because of the prices, but I absolutely love novella's and don't mind for paying for them. But I am glad and happy to say This Night So Dark novella is now free on amazon so grab it when you still can while it is still free. I absolutely and thoroughly love and enjoy this amazing novella! It starts off with Tarver having a horrible nightmare about what happen too him months before the Icarus crash on a research lab. Where a group of brutal mercenaries takes hostage civilian researchers at there lab. And it was up to Tarver and a lab researcher named SanJana to safe the rest of the other civilian researchers and escape the mercenaries and get help. Tarver is talking with Lilac about everything what happen too him in through that terrible predicament he had on that research lab. I am so glad and happy I read This Night So Dark because it help me understand more better how Lilac evil father Roderick LaRoux would go to the extend too protect and hide his dark secret from his people.
