Another quick plug—this one for Sean Robins. I had the pleasure of editing the sixth book in The Crimson Deathbringer series and The White Republic: An Epic Space Opera/Alien Adventure does not disappoint. It’s as enjoyable a read as the previous (great title, too).
If you’ve been following, you know about the brilliant battles and enemy invasions and the fun cast of characters, including: Jim (the hero), Kurt (his friend, and the President), Xornaa (a stunning warrior), Tarq (the four-legged prankster), Maada (the enemy-turned-ally General).
This time the question is: what happens if the technologically superior Akakies develop into the villainous Klingons in a parallel universe?
The ship itself was built before the widespread use of SAM had changed the Akakies into a warrior race, but they had recently added layers upon layers of offensive and defensive weaponry to her hull, turning her into a lethal killing machine that could destroy an entire planet with ease. With a few thousand escort space fighters, she could stand against the entire enemy force and prevail.
When the White Republic’s navy decimates the Federation’s forces in a surprise attack, Jim and his friends must unite once more to expel the invaders and liberate their worlds. Unfortunately, they have only a few thousand ships left and, to make matters worse, they’re under a tight deadline—with time rapidly running out.
How will they accomplish this incredible feat? You’ll have to read The White Republic to find out. You can find it and the other books in the series here:
