What’s your pleasure? Military Science Fiction, swords and sorcery, dungeons and dragons, fights against impossible odds? Would you like battles in New York City between soldiers and orcs, magic using elves riding dragons versus NYPD, sword, sorcery and automatic weapons? They are all there when man’s world is invaded by an ancient foe. This book has it all. The best advice I can give you is this book is really cool and you have gotta read it. (And it looks like more to come!) Well done John and Lucas!
You're a Mecha, a mechanical fighting machine with a human pilot. The guy that the infantry curse at in training and pray for in combat. The machine that the last hopes of your people ride on. The construct that strikes fear deep into alien hearts as they hear your turbines power up. The one able to pass through hell and come out the other side victorious, or die trying.
Cannon Publishing brings you ten stories from current masters of military science fiction that will take you from the magic of a Medieval village to the edges of the galaxy to fight inhuman foes.
Several hundred years from now, brutal combat between humanity and a deadly alien species drags the non-combatants of the Valkyrie medevacs into a fight for their lives. "The Valkyries are coming!", no matter how hot the Landing Zone, have become words to live by.
On the planet nicknamed "Desolation", no quarter is given after the enemy slaughters the men and women of the 378th Forward Resuscitation Team, the front line medics that risk their lives to drag casualties back from the brink of death. The only survivors, Flight Nurse Captain Elizabeth Suarez and Combat Medic Sergeant Brian Agawa, find themselves trapped behind enemy lines, fighting to survive. Overhead, the 17th Spaceborne drop in and start mayhem only paratroopers can cause, and the Second Armored Cav counterattacks, their heavy tanks rolling hot into enemy lines. As word spreads of the destruction of the hospital, "Remember the Valkyries!" becomes a cry of vengeance for the Earth troopers.
Follow the Valkyries as the war against the Elia progresses from planet to planet, each a different version of hellacious warfare.
