Titans by Edward W. Robertson
Rob Dunbar is the world’s best history professor. And with good reason: he’s been alive for three thousand years, keeping his existence a secret since before the days of Athens.
But a stranger named Baxter has a better use for Rob’s vast expertise. Baxter’s looking to found a mining company in the Asteroid Belt. In exchange for Rob’s help, he’ll try to unravel the mystery of Rob’s origin.
As they’re getting their outfit off the ground, they come under covert attack by HemiCo, a powerful Mars-based corporation. And Rob learns Baxter has a secret of his own–he’s not human. He’s a highly illegal AI.
Developed by HemiCo in the wilds of Mars, the first AI escaped decades ago. They’ve been fighting a shadow war against their creators ever since. Dragged to Mars, Rob is thrown into the center of the fight–and becomes the unlikely leader of a revolution that will change the course of human history amongst the stars.

Orphan Tribe, Orphan Planet by Jonathan Vick
Darkness is a place; a planet without a sun; an ice giant drifting through the void; lost andalone; searching for an orbit to call home. The orphan planet is blind but alive. There are creatures without eyes or color or light, living on the mountains, in the caves, beneath the crust.
On an icy planet with no sun, no light and no sight, an immature young warrior leaves his village for the first time on his very first hunt. His father and brothers don’t think he’s ready. When he has to be rescued not far from home, he seems to have proven them right. But when a storm divides the hunt team and they are attacked from below, the young warrior has to travel through an unfamiliar world to save his dying father, fight unimaginable creatures to save his own life, and warn his village about a devastating future only he knows is coming.

Nether by Jason Beymer
Keep your demon alive, win the sweepstakes.
Burklin had it all — a spacious house, a shapeshifting wife, a wide open future — until his father ripped out his soul and trapped it inside a dog. Now he’s a slave, mopping up after a homicidal teenage demon. His father is sleeping with his ex, the possessed dog won’t shut up, and the cleanup jobs keep getting messier. Burklin would give anything to have his life back — even if it means forfeiting his chance to win the Nether’s sweepstakes.
Opportunity knocks with a dead woman’s hand. When the demon’s latest victim won’t stay dead, the rules of life and death change. Freedom lies within Burklin’s reach, but to get it he’ll have to defy his father, the ex-wife he still loves, and the Nether itself. Just how far is he willing to go?
