Down Among the Dead

K. B. Wagers,

Down Among the Dead
 
 
Gunrunner empress Hail Bristol must navigate alien politics and deadly plots to prevent an interspecies war, in this second novel of the Farian War space opera trilogy.
 
In a surprise attack that killed many of her dearest subjects, Hail Bristol, empress of Indrana, has been captured by the Shen -- the most ruthless and fearsome aliens humanity has ever encountered. As she plots her escape, the centuries-long war between her captors and the Farians, their mortal enemies and Indrana's oldest allies, finally comes to a head.
 
When her captors reveal a shocking vision of the future, Hail must make the unexpectedly difficult decision she's been avoiding: whether to back the Shen or the Farians.
 
Staying neutral is no longer an option. Will Hail fight? Or will she fall?
 
Praise for The Farian War Trilogy:

"Action- and emotion-packed, folding political tension, personal relationships, and trauma into a vivid space opera that does not pull any punches." —Library Journal (starred review)

"An exciting dose of space opera and political intrigue peppered with hard choices. Highly recommended!" —Booklist

"Twisty and clever and magnificent, full of political maneuvers, space action, and genuine feeling."  —Beth Cato, author of The Clockwork Dagger
