Summary
  • "Steve White, co-author with David Weber of the New York Times best-seller The Shiva Option, joins with Compton Crook Award Winner Charles E. Gannon to carve another notch in the Starfire adventure saga. The war with the Arduans--profoundly alien invaders who originally arrived in STL ships--is over. Most of those attackers are now probationary (and very productive) citizens of the Rim Federation. However, many among the Arduans' warrior caste have neither accepted defeat, nor the personhood of any of the other intelligence races. Their leader, the ruthless admiral of the second Arduan exodus-- Amunsit--is in firm control of the Zarzuela system. Along with a fifth column among the peaceable Arduans, she hopes to find allies in subsequent refugee fleets that abandoned their race's now-dead home system long ago. But as the victors' diplomats attempt to soothe tensions with these warlike neighbors, two heroes of the last war--veteran Admiral Ian Trevayne and young trouble-shooter Ossian Wethermere--suspect they have stumbled upon a deeper Arduan plot: one which could shatter the Pan-Sentient Union, and perhaps interstellar civilization itself. About Extremis: "Vivid.Battle sequences mingle with thought-provoking exegesis."-Publishers Weekly About Steve White and David Weber's The Shiva Option: "[Leaves] the reader both exhilarated and enriched." -Publishers Weekly About Steve White: "White offers fast action and historically informed world-building."-Publishers Weekly About Steve White's Forge of the Titans: ". recalls the best of the John Campbell era of SF. White's core audience of hard SF fans will be pleased."-Publishers Weekly"--
