Product Overview

In a desperate attempt to save his race, the Ildiran Mage-Imperator, Jora'h, is forced into a devil's bargain with the evil hydrogues. Meanwhile, the gypsy Roamer clans and the green priests of the worldforest are discovering innovative ways to rebel. Forces collide in a fury that will destroy many and devastate the landscape of the Spiral Arm.

From the Publisher:
One of the most successful science fiction writers in the world today, Kevin J. Anderson is the author of many popular Star Wars and X-Files novels, as well as the coauthor, with Brian Herbert, of the bestselling Dune prequels. Now, in a boldly imagined new chapter, Anderson's The Saga of Seven Suns reaches a feverish crescendo of interstellar war and intrigue...

The extermination of Earth is at hand. With his increasingly irrational leadership Basil Wenceslas, chairman of the Hansa, has driven humanity into a corner. His punitive treatment of the Hansa colonies and the Roamers as well as his refusal to aid an embattled Theroc have made enemies for the people of Earth. Enemies that the Hansa cannot afford. Not when Wenceslas is struggling against revolt by soldier compies, who decimate the military by stealing ships and slaughtering soldiers; and betrayal by the Ildirans, led by Jora'h the Mage-Imperator, who is secretly scheming with the hydrogues to annihilate Earth.

Now disparate factions of humanity must plan for their own salvation. Worldtrees allied with humans on Theroc have rallied hulking, thorny tree battleships. Roamers work with powerful water entities, the wentals, to seed planets everywhere with a growing force to challenge the hydrogues.

But when the final battle with the hydrogues is joined, who will aid the people of Earth?

About the Author:
Kevin J. Anderson has over fifteen million books in print in 27 languages. Anderson's original work has appeared on numerous "Best of the Year" lists and the final ballots for the Nebula and Bram Stoker Award. In 1998, he set the Guinness World Record for "Largest Single-Author Book Signing." He has written many popular Star Wars and X-Files novels, and numerous bestselling comics.

An avid hiker, he dictates most of his fiction into a microcassette recorder while out exploring the wilderness. He has climbed all 54 peaks over 14,000 ft in the Colorado Rockies. Research for his novels has taken him to the deserts of Morocco and the cloud forests of Ecuador, Inca ruins in the Andes and Maya temples in the Yucatan, inside the Cheyenne Mountain NORAD complex, NASA's Vehicle Assembly Building at Cape Canaveral, a Minuteman III missile silo and its underground control bunker, onto the deck of the aircraft carrier Nimitz, onto the floor of the Pacific Stock Exchange, inside a plutonium plant at Los Alamos, and behind the scenes at FBI Headquarters in Washington, DC. He also, occasionally, stays home and works on his manuscripts.
