Mars is supposed to be dead...Bizarre quakes are rumbling over the
long-dormant tectonic plates of the planet, disrupting its
trillion-dollar mining operations and driving scientists past the
edges of theory and reason. However, when rocks shake off their
ancient dust and begin to roll--seemingly of their own
volition--carving canals as they converge to form a towering
structure amid the ruddy terrain, Lt. Jain and her JSC team realize
that their routine geological survey of a Martian cave system is
anything but. The only clues they have stem from the emissions of a
mysterious blue radiation, and a 300-year-old journal that is
writing itself. Lt. Thomas Weatherby of His Majesty's Royal Navy is
an honest 18th-century man, doing his part for King and Country
aboard the HMS Daedalus, a frigate sailing the high seas between
continents...and the immense Void between the Known Worlds. With
the aid of his fierce captain, a drug-addled alchemist, and a
servant girl with a remarkable past, Weatherby must track a great
and powerful mystic, who has embarked upon a sinister quest to
upset the balance of the planets--the consequences of which may
reach far beyond the Solar System, threatening the very fabric of
space itself. Skyhorse Publishing, under our Night Shade and Talos
imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of titles for readers
interested in science fiction (space opera, time travel, hard SF,
alien invasion, near-future dystopia), fantasy (grimdark, sword and
sorcery, contemporary urban fantasy, steampunk, alternative
history), and horror (zombies, vampires, and the occult and
supernatural), and much more. While not every title we publish
becomes a New York Times bestseller, a national bestseller, or a
Hugo or Nebula award-winner, we are committed to publishing quality
books from a diverse group of authors.
