"NAMELESS is a sci-fi treat filled with action, romance and the eternal quest of remembering who we really are. Gritty at times, poignant at others, with a touch of hilarity in between." ~Tosca Lee, NY Times Bestselling Author of The Legend of Sheba: Rise of a Queen

A girl with no memories. A man with too many. And an assassin who starts a war to find them.

On the seedy backwater moon where a NUSovian ship dropped Xander off to scratch a living among the mines and brothels, true friends are a luxury she can't afford. What kind of person doesn't know her own name? Waiting tables and fending off amorous drunks barely earns Xander enough to survive, let alone escape to the civilized colony of NUSaxony to find a neurotherapist who can help her regain her lost memories.

But help often comes from unexpected places.

An ex-assassin on the run from his own past, Kale and a team of bounty hunters as eclectic and derelict as their ship saves Xander from a syndicate operative who started a space colony war to find her. They race against time, seeking the spaceship that holds the key to Xander's memories before the syndicate catches up with them.

As the net closes in, Xander faces a choice.

Is finding herself worth the price her friends will pay? Or does true friendship mean sacrificing Xander's memories-walking away from everyone she loves-to keep them safe?

After all, some things are more important than a name.

In the first book of the Destiny trilogy, a woman’s lost memories bring mysterious syndicates to her doorstep, willing to ignite a war to capture her. Xander’s only hope is to find a neurotherapist who may be able to unlock her secrets, but her journey is fraught with questionable loyalties, sociopathic hunters, and rocky romances. When Xander is saved from an ambush by bounty hunters on a rickety ship, she desperately clings to them despite her suspicions that they have ties to those who chase her. Central to Williams’s story are two questions: how much should one sacrifice one’s present life because of mistakes or forgotten memories, and how much does the past define current and future identity? The religious elements of the narrative feel jarring and forced, but they are far and few in between, though foreshadowing suggests further development of those elements in subsequent installments. Williams’s prose is serviceable, and she straddles the lines between conventional and unconventional science fiction thrillers, offering an easy-to-read but thoughtful and dark tale that holds promise. (Dec.)
