Publisher's Summary

A young woman with cybernetic upgrades, Mari Moonrazor has decided to flee the restrictive machine-worshipping cult she was raised in.

She longs to know what it’s like to live among normal humans and experience simple biological pleasures like consuming alcohol, kissing a boy, and — most importantly — eating chocolate.

But her mother, the infamous astroshaman leader Kyla Moonrazor, is determined to get her back, even if it means sending a bounty hunter after her. Mari’s only hope for freedom is to be granted asylum from the leaders of the powerful Star Kingdom. First, she must prove that she has knowledge and resources she can offer them. Second, she has to earn their trust.

This all would have been easier if her people hadn’t bombed their planet....

Asylum is a stand-alone novel in the Star Kingdom universe. It introduces new heroes, but fans will enjoy visits with Casmir, Kim, Qin, Laser, Oku, and other favorites from the series.

The Universe is back!

I'm not sure what about these characters Lindsay likes so much, but they are different than the characters she constructs in her other books - better, more personal, unique - special. Even though there are new ones, they continue seamlessly in this world she has built.

Also - She writes male characters incredibly well. The same way male authors cringe write women characters, most female authors cringe write male characters. Could be she and I see the world the same, but more likely she's emotionally intelligent in a way other female authors are not - which is what it takes to tell great stories.

Normally, I won't invest in a series when the books are less than 12 hrs long - Lindsay is the only exception I make to this arbitrary rule. Her stories are that good. I'm guessing this sites business model is the same as most of the USA, where the entity creating the goods/services make a fraction of what the distributers make, thus authors are unfairly compensated, rich get richer and there are no easy ways to break the chains. Linsdsay - after the Revolution, I'm gonna make sure you get a fair cut of your amazing work, so writing longer books makes financial sense again - so tired of this broken system:)

Thank you Lindsay Buroker

Sigh, I didn’t realize just how much I have missed this universe. Love the new characters along with the familiar ones. It is a fun storyline. Thank Lindsay for a great story. If you have listened to Star Kingdom you must get this one as well, you won’t be disappointed.

Even after 9 books...

I still can't pick a favorite character!! It's so rare to find a series that stay so stellar through 9 books, but I am going to miss the characters in this awesome series.

a nice addition to the set

the story was a little less interesting than the previous books, but I suppose it was just a setup for the new characters.

Fred Berman brings so much life

I am an avid reader and listener of Lindsay Buroker’s novels. I have read and/ or listened to almost every one of her series. I love her writing. In this series, Fred Berman brings so much life to the characters.

This book is wonderful as a stand alone or as a continuation of the Star Kingdom series as all of our favorite characters make appearances.

Please, Lindsay, continue to write this series. Please continue to have Fred narrate. It’s a wonderful match. I will listen to the entire series again just to be transported to the adventures of Star Kingdom by the combo of Lindsay and Fred.
