Assault on the Gods

Free sample

Starship captain Ardeva Korrell is used to fighting prejudice, both
because she's a woman in what's normally a man's line of work and
because she's from a world with a misunderstood religion. But
now, on a trading mission to a backwater planet, she finds herself with
another kind of fight on her hands; she and her small crew must battle
an army of robots and defeat the tyrannical, god-like beings who have
enslaved the native population.

The task before them is straightforward: to storm the gates of Heaven itself!

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Grand Admiral Thrawn and Darth Vader team up against a threat to the Empire in this thrilling novel from bestselling author Timothy Zahn.
“I have sensed a disturbance in the Force.” 

Ominous words under any circumstances, but all the more so when uttered by Emperor Palpatine. On Batuu, at the edges of the Unknown Regions, a threat to the Empire is taking root—its existence little more than a glimmer, its consequences as yet unknowable. But it is troubling enough to the Imperial leader to warrant investigation by his most powerful agents: ruthless enforcer Lord Darth Vader and brilliant strategist Grand Admiral Thrawn. Fierce rivals for the emperor’s favor, and outspoken adversaries on Imperial affairs—including the Death Star project—the formidable pair seem unlikely partners for such a crucial mission. But the Emperor knows it’s not the first time Vader and Thrawn have joined forces. And there’s more behind his royal command than either man suspects.

In what seems like a lifetime ago, General Anakin Skywalker of the Galactic Republic, and Commander Mitth’raw’nuruodo, officer of the Chiss Ascendancy, crossed paths for the first time. One on a desperate personal quest, the other with motives unknown . . . and undisclosed. But facing a gauntlet of dangers on a far-flung world, they forged an uneasy alliance—neither remotely aware of what their futures held in store.

Now, thrust together once more, they find themselves bound again for the planet where they once fought side by side. There they will be doubly challenged—by a test of their allegiance to the Empire . . . and an enemy that threatens even their combined might.

Praise for Thrawn: Alliances

“It’s a science fiction beach read in the best way, brisk and amusing, with some cool additions to the Star Wars galaxy.”—Den of Geek
“Like all of Zahn’s novels set in a galaxy far, far away, it’s an essential read for anyone looking for an artistically done adventure.”—CNET
”Blasfemo... altamente ofensivo” y MUY divertido. Herodotus Shapiro ha tenido una semana increíblemente mala. Su mujer lo ha abandonado. Hacienda lo está buscando por unos miles de dólares. Su casa y librería terminó ardiendo. De camino a casa de su hermano le multaron por exceso de velocidad. Y ahora su coche lo ha dejado colgado en medio del desierto enfrente de una enorme mansión. ¿Qué podría ir peor? Ahora su mundo da un giro inesperado. La mansión tiene un muñeco de nieve en la entrada en medio del desierto en pleno julio. La casa, mucho mayor desde dentro que vista desde fuera, es propiedad de Polly, la más extraordinariamente bella mujer que él ha visto jamás. Polly es acróbata, chef, psicóloga, consultor financiero internacional, médico un mujer con Dios sabe que otros increíbles talentos. Posee una alucinante biblioteca, una colección de arte con obras de arte de todo el mundo y una copia de una película desconocida de los Hermanos Marx. El papel de váter es de seda. Y parece que tiene algunos planes misteriosos para él... *** ”¡Cuidado con el Decálogo! Los lectores no tendrán problemas en identificarse y empatizar con el protagonista, una historia clásica narrada con ingenio, sabiduría y un toque falaz, y con la estrella invitada más interesante que podrías tener... ¿por aquí? Quizás los escritores que quieran intentar escribir un libro como ¡Polly! Alucinarán con su audacia (aquellos que repiten hasta la saciedad siempre lo mismo).” Spider Robinson, coautor de ”Variable Star” por Robert A. Heinlein y Spider Robinson *** ¡POLLY! Con mucho orgullo recibió la Medalla al Mejor Autor Indie y recibió 5 estrellas como Favorito de los Lectores.
