'Birdie Down' is the first in the New World Rebellion series. It fits right in around chapter 100 of the bigger story, 'Scat'.

The third generation residents of the resource-rich New Worlds are seeking to throw off the yoke of corporate rule. Ex-Resource War veteran, Sebastian Scatkiewicz and his colleague, Andrew 'Birdie' Goosen, have dared to take on the biggest company of them all. Hot from attacking the Lynthax Corporation head offices on Trevon and then on G-eo they're planning to attack a third. But there's friction in the rebel camp. Scat's ignoring the advice of colleagues. His personal beef with Jack Petroff, Lynthax's head of security, is affecting his judgement; his friends and political masters are doubting his motives; and the loyalty of the newest recruits is far from certain ... “the best independently published science fiction E-book I’ve read.”

'The story had me turning pages as fast as I could and I was sad when it ended' “The story is fast paced and action packed, the rebels racing to stay ahead of the powerful Petroff and his security forces. They have lots of great gadgets and weaponry to keep sci-fi geeks happy. And the novel is chock-full of interesting characters: the creepy Petroff who leads from behind; the slightly psychotic security specialist Cummings who has several "enhancements," including eye implants, that enable him to do his job better; and Lieutenant Alfred H. Day, a quintessential Englishman who figures that he may as well not be paid by the rebels as by his former masters. Everyone has a backstory, most of which are cleverly stitched into the novel, and their own reasons for picking or changing sides.”
