Breaking Point

Silky, Siv, and Mitsuki are now willing to do whatever it takes to find and rescue Ambassador Galen Vim. But government agents, criminal organizations, and bounty hunters swarm the Titus II system. Getting to the planet alive may be the easiest part of this mission since no one has seen the ambassador since he was captured by Tekk Reapers.

Thanks to a vision from Oona, the young hyperphasic messiah, they know he’s alive and in the company of a mysterious young woman with unusual abilities. They also know that he has information essential not just to Oona’s survival but to the survival of human civilization itself.

Description

The Benevolency Universe

For over three thousand years a superintelligence called the Benevolence guided humanity through an age of unprecedented peace, prosperity, and technological advancement. Now, a century after its collapse, our enemies multiply as we struggle to maintain our starfaring civilization and recover technology we once took for granted. But the Benevolence kept many secrets to itself, secrets that could shape the future of humanity

1) Which Outworld Ranger book should I read first, ONE or ZERO?

Either one.

They were written at the same time, so either one can be read first without giving away spoilers about the other. Book One: Rogue Starship was originally intended as the entry point for the series. However, Book Zero: Forbidden System was originally intended to be a prequel short story and written as a world building exercise. Clearly, it got away from me a bit.

2) If Forbidden System is a prequel, do I need to read it?

Forbidden System may be a prequel to the Outworld Ranger series, but it works as an excellent starting point for diving into the books. Plus it has a lot of important backstory, both for the world and the characters. So you definitely should read it. You just don't have to read it first.

3) Why does the cover say that Forbidden System is Book Zero but Amazon says that it is Book 1?

That confusing bit of numbering is because Amazon does not allow authors to add prequels to a series (or books between books, like a book 1.5). The only way to get Forbidden System to appear on the Outworld Ranger series page is to shift the numbering in their system.

With the main character being a nigh on sentient compute chip with a jaw dropping back story coupled with a fast moving ever changing situation, what's not to love? Superb yarn, well written that grabs you and doesn't let go until the very last word.
