A floating prison is home to Earth's unwanted people, where they are forgotten... but not yet dead, in this wild science fiction adventure

Deep space penal colony Oubliette, population: scum. Lena "Horror" Horowitz leads the Daughters of Forgotten Light, one of three vicious gangs fighting for survival on Oubliette. Their fragile truce is shaken when a new shipment arrives from Earth carrying a fresh batch of prisoners and supplies to squabble over. But the delivery includes two new surprises: a drone, and a baby. Earth Senator Linda Dolfuse wants evidence of the bloodthirsty gangs to justify the government finally eradicating the wasters dumped on Oubliette. There's only one problem: the baby in the drone's video may be hers.

Praise for this book

"High octane and hard hitting. Daughters of Forgotten Light is exactly what I want from sci-fi: badass women getting it done... with unapologetic grindhouse glam." - K C Alexander

"Grab your energy boomerang and get ready for a wild ride! Grigsby's latest book is a full-throttle nightmarish sci-fi Mad Max: Fury Road. It's violent, intense, and packed with passion as exiled women fight for their very right to exist." - Beth Cato

"A fun, fast, foul-mouthed thrill ride with more than its share of real surprises and pathos." - Spencer Ellsworth

"Put your helmet on! Grit, grease, and fast-paced futuristic action, complete with hardbitten women throwing energy boomerangs while speeding on motorcycles, makes this a riveting ride." - Cat Rambo

"Rollicking pulp action around a deep, dark heart brimming with barely-contained rage. The book balances brutal deprivation and violence against moments of pride, joy, and sadness. Even pitted at deadly odds against one another, the women of Daughters of Forgotten Light form powerful relationships that shine against their bleak world. The book never apologizes and never pulls a punch, and neither do its characters." - Caitlin Starling

"An incredibly diverse cast of villains who all just happen to be female, motorcycles that run on light and a glass prison in space, Daughters of Forgotten Light is a joyride into anarchy and out the other side." - Anna Stephens
