A novel by

Ten Low and her ragtag comrades take on an ultra-rich tycoon who owns entire planets in this high-octane clash of law and lawlessness across the stars, for fans of Gideon the Ninth, Anne Leckie and Becky Chambers.

Who controls the future, controls it all...

Ten “Doc” Low is a medic with a dark past, riding the wastes of the desert moon Factus, dispensing medicine to the needy and death to those who cross the laws of the mysterious Seekers. Cursed by otherworldly forces, she stays alone to keep herself safe, and to keep others safe from her...

But when she experiences a terrifying vision of conflict and the deaths of those she once called friends, she must drag herself back to the land of the living to stop a war before it begins. With rebellion brewing, the Accord’s grip on the Outer Moons weakening and a sinister tycoon buying up all land in sight, Ten must find allies where she can and face the past in order to save the future. The cost will be greater than she could ever have imagined...

A wild, adrenaline-packed, whip-smart crash of storytelling and shoot-outs, ideal for fans of Becky Chambers'
Wayfarers and Alex White's Salvagers.

Praise for this book

"A gritty, transgressive cyberwestern adventure that feels like Sergio Leone crossed with Mad Max. Glorious!" - Paul Cornell

"Splendidly inclusive and innovative sci-fi." - Joanne Harris

"With scalpel-sharp prose, Holborn carves beauty out of a brutal world where possibilities are both a blessing and a weapon. For all the sand-blasted action and brawls against an unknowable terror, it's ultimately the tale of a main character - a double-sided coin of grace and gruffness - on a journey for redemption. 'Hel's Eight' holds all the grit of 'Mad Max: Fury Road' with a smoky mezcal chaser that lingers long after the final page." - Nathan Tavares

"A real brutal tour de force, pulse pounding action and eye-opening ideas." - Adrian Tchaikovsky
