Yukikaze

by Chohei Kambayashi

Part of the Yukikaze Series

Yukikaze Synopsis

In the midst of a war with an enigmatic alien host - a war with no end in sight - Second Lieutenant Rei Fukai carries out his missions in the skies over the strange planet nicknamed Faery. Attached to Tactical Combat and Surveillance Unit 3 of the Special Air Force, his duty is to gather information on the enemy and bring it back - no matter the cost. His only constant companion in this lonely task is his fighter plane, the sentient FFR-31 Super Sylph, call sign: YUKIKAZE.

Yukikaze Press Reviews

Yukikaze may be the perfect bridge between anime and the sort of military SF which I write. The novel is a clean, detached look at war and warriors: fast-moving, poetic, and precise even when describing passion. A remarkable book, unique in my experience. -- Dave Drake, Author of Hammer's Slammers
