Trans Liberty Riot Brigade: Book One

Trans Liberty Riot Brigade: Book One
Pierce, L. M.

"Andi knows being born an intersex "Transgressor" and then choosing to stay that way can have lethal consequences. After all, surgical assignment is mandated by law. But she ain't going to spend her life hiding from the Society, hooked on Flow, and wanking tourists just to make a few bucks. She's a member of the Trans Liberty Riot Brigade, an underground faction of Transgressors resisting the government's war on their illegal genitalia. But it's not enough to tag their messages on shithouse walls and sniff down the next high. The government has found their headquarters, decimated their ranks, and they're crushing the resistance. Though Andi might be nothing but a junktard, she embarks on a desperate dash to stay alive and send a call for help before they're all killed--or worse, surgically assigned. Andi, together with Brigade leader Elenbar, must get beyond the communications block preventing all radio transmission, which means crossing the seaboard Wall barricading the United Free States borders. It's designed to keep enemies out and the citizens in, but amid increasing earthquakes and deadly pursuit, Andi will discover there's a far more dangerous secret hidden deep within the Wall itself."--Provided by publisher.

Siege Line
Cole, Myke

The Gemini Cell took everything from Jim Schweitzer: his family, his career as a Navy SEAL, even his life. Hounded across the country, Schweitzer knows the only way he can ever stop running, the only way his son can ever be safe, is to take the fight to the enemy and annihilate the Cell once and for all. But the Cell won't be easily destroyed. Out of control and fighting a secret war with the government it once served, it has dispatched its shadowy Director to the far reaches of the subarctic in search of a secret magic that could tip the balance of power in its favor. Schweitzer must join with the elite warriors of both America and Canada in a desperate bid to get there first--and avert a disaster that could put the Cell in control.
