Okay, so there were hitches. Lots of hitches. But Jarek got his exosuit back, and Rachel managed to—

Hey, wait a second...

You don't wanna read a bunch of spoilers, do you? Suffice it to say, that stupid alien egg was not full of candy. Now, [REDACTED] is in a coma, and our heroes have a tight-lipped raknoth telling them some fresh new hell is about to come raining down on their heads. One that gives even the raknoth nightmares.

And that's when the strange ship shows up...

Don your power armor, grab the popcorn, and join Jarek and Rachel for another rip-roaring adventure today!

Happy Readers Around The World

Meet The Author

Hi there! Thanks for swinging by my book store.

I'm Luke, and in addition to being a full-time sci-fi pen monkey and dad of two, I often temp as a melted puddle of goo on the living room floor.

When I'm not busy being crushed by the myriad pressures of life, I delight in all manner of reading, gaming, powerlifting, and even occasionally spending time with my family. (I know, right?)

Anyway, I live in Rhode Island with my wife, Marina, and those two aforementioned feral wildmen we call children. But that's probably enough about us. If you're looking to be entertained, you should probably just go grab one of my books and tuck in. You won't regret it. (Probably.)

Great! But Seriously… How Does It Work?

Buy Direct. Fight the Power.

By cutting out the big retailer middlemen and buying directly from Luke on this store, you pay less and he makes more! It's like magic, except really it's just less hands grabbing at your money.

Get Your Books in 7-14 Days

As soon as you purchase, your books will be printed on demand and shipped your way by the wonderful folks at Book Vault.

Enjoy with Confidence.

We're currently not equipped to handle returns on print books, but rest assured that we do offer a 100% money back guarantee on lost or damaged books.

Still Prefer Amazon, Apple, Kobo, etc?

No worries. Our store does work with all of the above apps, eReaders, and ore, but if buying direct just isn't for you right now, you can find a complete list of retailer links for all of Luke's books right here!

This book, along with the previous one in the series is cramming weeks worth of action into a few days. It's also the warm up to the upcoming super bad guys that they need to get prepared for.I am enjoying the interaction between the characters and the growing love story between Jarek and Rachel is well done and not out of place even with all of the crazy action going on.

The likelihood that the humans and the Raknoths will solve their war and be able to decide how the new group will enter the conflict has become an unknown. Hurry up and arrive August.


My rating is 3.5. I’m disappointed in the direction. There was so much excitement in book one. With the sporadic action and Jared and Rachel constantly in their heads, I lost interest in the story. I found myself rushing to the conclusion. The battles were so chaotic. Made it difficult to focus. I hope Reaping Day is much better. I really loved book one and wanted that euphoria to continue through the series. Hope the next book is better.


I am not normally a fantasy reader. I tend to favor the military space opera genre. But I picked up Red Gambit on a 99 cent special and I am glad I did. The story is good, the characters are fun, and the writing is awesome. Hell to Pay is better than Red Gambit and I am about to start on Reaping Day. The only down side is I have to wait for book four...Update: I have finished all 4 Harvester books and 2 of the new Enochian war books which is a prequel to the Harvester series. They are just as good as the original series with a couple of the Enochian characters you learn about in the Harvester books .
