Interstellar war hits the planet surface - Starship Troopers EVE style.
Tony Gonzales is the author of two EVE Online novellas. His first published work for Gollancz, EVE: THE EMPYREAN AGE has been hugely successful.
As a brutal war rages in the Genesis region of the Eve Constellation, the New Eden system of worlds has become the battleground where galactic governments jockey for political and economic power. Vince Barabin, an ex-prisoner of the Amarr Empire, now serves the Empress as Templar One, an immortal soldier committed to protecting the Imperial way of life. But the Empire has embarked on a clandestine program tied to secrets locked in the past that could change the course of the war, and Templar One is the key. VERDICT Setting the stage for the launch of CCP Games's Dust 514 expansion of its popular multiplayer EVEr Online game phenomenon, Gonzalez's (EVE: The Empyrean Age) latest novel is heavily weighted toward fast-paced military action, but the characters are nevertheless well developed. Strong storytelling makes this an informative and entertaining choice for fans of the game and for military sf readers in general. (c) Copyright 2011.
