Bullied, tested, dismissed. This hero won't give up.
Biological children are an unwelcome anomaly on a colony ship approaching its final destination. Shunned and bullied for the method of her birth, Errai Avila keeps her head down and hides in the ship's kitchen.

But when the captain calls for volunteers to explore their new home planet, she has a difficult choice: brave applying to gain the crew's notice and respect?  Or remain anonymous and ignored at her menial job?

Tension rises as the exploration team's controversial methods split the crew, and Errai's choice gets even harder.

How far will the dissenters go to get their way, and what can Errai do to stop them?

The Approach is the first book in a gripping YA sci-fi series. If you're a fan of The 100 and The Hunger Games, and if you like intense power struggles, difficult choices, and strong, intelligent heroines, then you'll love Holly Ice's Courage Colony books.

More details can be found under News and WIP.



System Nanites are a medical marvel. These tiny computers cure disease and heal injuries beyond a doctor’s skill. They save millions every year, and they’re broken.

Liana thinks the glitch is beneath her expertise. She’s focused on a fix for chronic overpopulation – terraforming nanites – while her fiancé dreams of a future in the stars. He wants to book a berth on a generation ship, and bring her with him. When nanites attack their hosts, they must make a choice: stay, or go? Without a cure, humans could be wiped out.

If you like impossible choices and dizzying stakes, then you’ll love this heart-wrenching prequel to Holly Ice’s page-turning Courage Colony books.
