If Cira and her stowaways can’t catch the attacker sabotaging her mother’s cargo ship, the entire ship, everyone on board, and the stowaways she’s been hiding may simply disappear.

Cira Antares is deeply loyal to two things: Pax Novis—her mother’s ship that transports supplies across war-torn star systems—and her personal mission to save war orphans. But hiding them as stowaways on the ship is illegal, and if any of them were found, not even her mother could protect Cira from the consequences.

She has successfully kept her secret…until supplies start to go missing. Food. Clothing. Tools. All signs point to her stowaways, but they wouldn’t do anything to risk exposing themselves—or her. Especially not Riston, the oldest of the group and someone Cira has grown close to. Someone she might even be falling in love with…

And petty thefts are only the beginning—whole ships are disappearing now.

Not caught in a firefight. Not destroyed by another planet. Vanishing. Without a trace.

And Pax Novis is next.


“PAX NOVIS is an engaging YA sci-fi novel that takes place in the future, when humans have colonized other planets.” –Olivia, Goodreads

Pax Novis is an intriguing young adult sci-fi thriller. I can't wait for the next book in The Pax Archives.” –Lovely Loveday, Goodreads

“If you're looking for a thrilling sci-fi mystery with wonderful representation and scenes guaranteed get your pulse racing, Pax Novis checks all those boxes.” –Teri, Goodreads

“I really liked this book: its space setting, on a huge space-ship who delivers goods to planets in need, and its current themes about war orphans, refugees, and illegal stowaways. The story is solid and compelling, the characters well rounded and interesting, in addition to actual non binary characters!” –Francesca, NetGalley

“The world building was detailed. Once I got into the flow the story moved along. I liked the characters and Cira and Riston were realistic. It was open ended for the next story. While not an easy read it was worth the extra work.”—Tammy, Goodreads

Oh, how I love a space adventure! Even better? A high stakes space adventure, which is exactly what we have here! I am going to get the one thing that I struggled with out of the way so ...more

This book nails a lot of things:
Writing style

But where it substantially lacks is: characters.

And the characters, I could argue, make or break a story. If I don’t feel any type of attachment to any of the characters—if I simply just do ...more

Ships missing in space?  Stowaways?  Yes, please.  And that cover?  A must read.

With a third gender pronoun set created by the author and incorporated into the story and several LGBTQ characters, the representation is outstanding.  Admittedly, I stumbled over the new terminology (ze, zem, zir) early ...more

Content warnings: (view spoiler)

I’m not really sure how to define this book. The general plot – Pax ships are losing contact, and the Novis may be next – reads like a thriller, but the pacing is very slow. As an example, the book s ...more

PAX NOVIS is an engaging YA sci-fi novel that takes place in the future, when humans have colonized other planets. Most of the planets are at war, creating a lot of orphans, death, and destruction. The Pax ships are essentially humanitarian, with the crew having given up all allegiance to any planet ...more

*squeals* Yesss! 5 stars :D
Oh my goodness where to start, I loved every part of this book. I loved the setting (space - yes!), particularly the ship itself, I am a huge sci-fi fan. I loved the story, and I loved the character/world building. Most especially, I loved the way this book made me feel! E ...more

By Jamie October 28, 2019

I had trouble connecting to the story and the characters. Not a whole lot happened in the first half of the book. However, when everything started to fall apart, that's when it really piqued my interest. And judging by the ending, book 2 is going to start right in the action.

Good rep though, there' ...more

This one was a bit difficult for a speed reader to read. The new pronouns threw me quite a bit at first. I had to reread many of the pages which took away from the flow of the book. The first part of the book was slow (even with the rereading). The world building was detailed. Once I got into the fl ...more

By Kat November 30, 2019

This book was interesting. 

We are thrown into a scifi thriller set in space, and to make it more engrossing, there's a killer loose on the cargo ship!

It's an adventure story of a girl who smuggles orphans through the galaxy aboard her mother's ship, but when things go missing, everything begins to p ...more
