By David Gunn

Fueled with high-octane testosterone and memorable for a kill price extra popular in desktop video games than in works of literature, David Gunn’s novels take no prisoners and make no apologies. Like battle itself, they're uncooked and violent, frightening but mysteriously relocating. those characteristics additionally signify Gunn’s hero and narrator, Lt. Sven Tveskoeg, a killing computing device whose DNA marks him as less–or probably more–than human. no matter what he's, he's consistently as captivating as he's lethal.

Sven has survived every little thing a opposed universe can throw at him. yet he’d be the 1st to confess that it isn’t smarts that experience stored him alive for thus lengthy. And it’s no longer good fortune, both. simply because good fortune wouldn’t have obvious him plucked out of obscurity to serve within the military of Emperor OctoV, a machine-human hybrid who seems to be a teenage boy yet is admittedly immeasurably older. perhaps Sven has survived out of sheer orneriness–although his artificially clever, unmistakably sarcastic, and kind of sociopathic sidearm may possibly argue otherwise–but Sven isn’t one to contemplate such questions.

In Day of the Damned, Sven and his band of misfit auxiliaries have arrived at Farlight, capital of the Octavian Empire, for a bit well-earned leisure and leisure. Sven visits his outdated pals Debro and Anton, whom he liberated from the criminal planet of Paradise, and their teenage daughter flair, whose husband he assassinated and who now has an immense overwhelm on him.

But what starts as a respite speedy becomes a massacre as civil conflict erupts. And in the back of the double crosses and Byzantine betrayals threatening to topple OctoV from the throne he has held for millions of years are the United loose, a galaxy-spanning empire with the know-how of gods and the morals of schoolchildren.

As traditional, great hassle seems following Sven. that's o.k. with him. He isn’t that keen on vacation trips, besides.
