The sequel to acclaimed The Daedalus Incident. “Hard science fiction in one corner and Alchemy in the other . . . You’re in for a wild ride” (GeekDad).
Lt. Commander Shaila Jain has been given the assignment of her dreams: the first manned mission to Saturn. But there’s competition and complications when she arrives aboard the survey ship Armstrong. The Chinese are vying for control of the critical moon Titan, and the moon Enceladus may harbor secrets deep under its icy crust. And back on Earth, Project DAEDALUS now seeks to defend against other dimensional incursions. But there are other players interested in opening the door between worlds…and they’re getting impatient.
For Thomas Weatherby, it’s been nineteen years since he was second lieutenant aboard HMS Daedalus. Now captain of the seventy-four-gun Fortitude, Weatherby helps destroy the French fleet at the Nile and must chase an escaped French ship from Egypt to Saturn, home of the enigmatic and increasingly unstable aliens who call themselves the Xan. Meanwhile, in Egypt, alchemist Andrew Finch has ingratiated himself with Napoleon’s forces . . . and finds the true, horrible reason why the French invaded Egypt in the first place.
“Continues the first novel’s mix of alchemy, intrigue, mystery, science fiction and high adventure . . . A follow-up that manages to improve on the first in significant ways.” —SF Signal
“A great adventure tale that combined elements of a spy thriller with that of a space opera, with a bittersweet ending reminiscent of The Empire Strikes Back. I recommend Enceladus, and the series as a whole.” —Matt Mitrovich, Amazing Stories
