Intergalactic empires fall, but one faction will rise from its ashes to conquer the galaxy,
in this extraordinarily diverse epic space opera.

Intergalactic empires fall, but one faction will rise from the ashes to conquer the galaxy.

Once the mighty Lazax Empire ruled all the known galaxy from its capital planet of Mecatol Rex, before treachery and war erased the Lazax from history, plunging a thousand star systems into conflict and uncertainty.

Now the Great Races who span the galaxy look upon their former capital hungrily – the power and secrets of the Lazax await a new emperor…

To lay claim to the throne is a destiny sought by many, yet the shadows of the past serve as a grim warning to those who would follow in their footsteps.

“there’s chases, betrayals, punching, a planet full of death traps, ragtag crews, and found family.”

– Tim Pratt

“Cool aliens, weird planets, neat weapons, chases and betrayals and threats. They all come at the genre from different angles though. The Fractured Void is a found family / ragtag crew adventure; The Necropolis Empire is a lost heir story against a backdrop of ancient galactic danger; the third book will have a strong espionage element.”
Paul Semel, Interview with Tim Pratt, author of The Necropolis Empire

“It’s got heists, jailbreaks, pursuits, reversals, jokes, banter, attempted murder, successful murder, kissing, and weird alien stuff galore.”
Paul Semel, Interview with Tim Pratt, author of The Fractured Void

“If you know about the game, it’ll be a kick to see the various species in action, and there are lots of name drops and easter eggs, but it is designed to work as a stand-alone, accessible space opera.”
Paul Semel, Interview with Tim Pratt, author of The Fractured Void

“My interest in writing is to explore human character and emotions in extreme situations, and space opera is full of extreme situations. Also, space science is cool, and while I’m definitely not a hard science person, I have a deep love for black holes and wormholes, goldilocks zones and strange matter, string theory and stellar formation. Telling stories against a backdrop that vast creates so many opportunities for great fiction.”
