Synopsis

Of Fire and Night : The Saga of Seven Suns - Book 5 by Kevin J Anderson

After many years of hardship and bravery, the human race faces its greatest challenge. The sweeping war between titanic races -- a conflict that has obliterated planets, extinguished entire stars, exterminated whole races -- is reaching its end game. Allies become betrayers, strangers become fast friends, and enemies clash in a struggle that will rock the galaxy.

For years, the alien Klikiss robots have pretended to be humanity's friends, but their seeming "help" has allowed them to plant an insidious Trojan Horse throughout the Earth Defense Forces, and the sudden rebellion of Earth's own compies leaves millions dead and the Terran Hanseatic League defenseless. In a desperate attempt to save his own race, the Ildiran Mage-Imperator Jora'h is forced into a devil's bargain with the evil hydrogues, which will require him to ambush and destroy what remains of the human race. But the gypsy Roamer clans and the green priests of the towering worldforest -- scattered stepchildren of humanity -- have found innovative ways to fight, as well as strange allies of incomprehensible power.

As the climactic battle is engaged, the Ildiran Solar Navy, the Earth Defense Forces, the Roamers, green priests, Klikiss robots, and hydrogue warglobes collide in a fury that will destroy many and change the landscape of the Spiral Arm forever.

Reviews

‘The scope is vast and the plot is just revealing enough to keep you on the edge of your seat. It is impossible that the Saga of the Seven Suns will be anything less than a hit’ – ENIGMA

‘Weaves action, romance and science with a rousing plot reflecting the classics of the Science Fiction of Arthur C Clarke and Frank Herbert with some glossy cinematic influences of Lucas and Spielberg’ – PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

‘Space opera on a grand scale. Anderson has created a fully independent and richly conceived venue for his personal brand of space opera’ – SCIFI.COM

‘A rip-roaring space opera full of treachery, mystery, adventure, intrigue, suspense, aliens, super science, space travel, and just about everything else you can imagine’ – CHRONICLE
