“Those who can destroy a world can control the universe.”
Everyone wants the Star of Erebus. Space-pirate Nyx Marcus is no exception. With it, she can prove to her father that she is worthy of his legacy. But she’s come up empty-handed aboard the space-ship Thanatos, and now Malcam, her father’s First Officer, is mutinying. As Nyx flees with a loyal skeleton crew, she discovers that the planet-killing weapon, named after one of the seven gods, is more than what it seems. Erebus isn’t a simple weapon, but an ancient AI and a technological god.
With the oppressive Queen of the Protectorate and new pirate captain Malcam searching for the Thanatos and Erebus, the AI god has more surprises for Nyx. Waking dormant AI code in Nyx’s blood, Erebus reveals they are family and Nyx is the head of the Seven Stars pantheon. But while Nyx’s only choice is to protect Erebus, she wants no part of her AI responsibilities. Now Nyx must learn to control her power without sacrificing her own humanity or give her enemies a new way to oppress the known universe and lose the family she holds dear.

Erebus Dawning has everything a space opera should: a kick-ass protagonist navigating new terrain and abilities, a misfit band of heroes, an evil superpower bent on ruling all, fast-paced action, and a wondrous blend of science fiction with fantasy.
...a great, high action, space opera. Blending ideas of human belief (mythology) with new beliefs about technology (AI) and what it can do/be...

Even in space, dysfunctional families exist (and somehow, I find that reassuring).

A story about wrestling with identity, power, and family, this incredible first book in a thrilling sci-fi saga sets the stage with heart, action, and a LOT of moral ambiguity.
