Fortune of War
Death slumbers in the ashes of silent planets,
waiting to be awakened and unleashed….
Twenty years have passed since the interstellar scourge known as the Husnock were exterminated without warning by a being with godlike abilities. Left behind, intact but abandoned, their desolate worlds and derelict ships brim with destructive potential.
Now a discovery by a Federation cultural-research team has drawn the attention of several ruthless factions. From black-market smugglers to alien military forces, it seems every belligerent power in the quadrant hopes to capture the Husnock’s lethal technology.
All that stands between the galaxy and those who have come to plunder the cruelest secrets of the Husnock are Admiral William Riker, Captain Christine Vale, and the crew of the Starship Titan.
FORTUNE OF WAR
A VOYAGE OF THE STARSHIP TITAN
BY NEW YORK TIMES
“…a lightning-paced novel…”
“The final book in the Titan series is one of the best. … Fortune of War goes all-in on the space opera angle, delivering non-stop action and adventure.”
“Fortune of War is a lightning-paced novel in which starships chase each other across space and suns are destroyed by ancient weaponry. … Titan has been the backbone of the Litverse for a decade and a half, and Fortune of War sums up brilliantly all of its best aspects.”
“A heist novel, with plenty of action in the signature style of David Mack.”
“Mack is an extremely comfortable and confident Star Trek novelist, and it shows. He weaves a tight narrative of the race between several parties to secure the Husnock technology, and continues to advance the rich characters of the Titan crew and their individual storylines.”
“Fortune of War is an exhilarating action adventure — the kind we have come to expect from Mack.”
