War in Heaven (Veteran 2) by Gavin Smith [New Cover]

Wow what a marvelous cover! Is that an alien city? or a ship? This one is a beauty! Veteran was my debut of the year 2010 and the sequel War in Heaven will be released this September. This is one of my most anticipated books of the year. Veteran had mysterious aliens, conspiracies, realistic battle scenes, fast pace, lots of wow moments and wonderful characters. I would say it was a mixture of Heavy Metal, Cyber Punk and Classic SF. It is Military Science Fiction at its best and I recommend it to a wider audience. I can’t wait for this new book.

This cover and blurb is fresh from the author. Thank you Gavin!

New Cover for War in Heaven

(Veteran book 2) by Gavin G. Smith (Gollancz) – Amazon UK | US

I should be dead.

The war with the aliens. Them. It’s over. Now we turn on ourselves. Human fighting human again, when we came so close to wiping ourselves out the last time and the bad guys, the true bastards like Rolleston, Cronin and the Grey Lady, hold all the cards. God may control the net, privacy is dead, but Demiurge is coming. We don’t stand a chance.

I’ve had enough. No more fighting for my life, last ditch assaults, putting my mostly machine body back together again. No more desperate chases, nearly dying in space when the integrity of the exo-armour starts to give. No more fear…

I’ve pushed my luck too far. I’m out. This isn’t my war, even if it means I’ve lost her.

Just one last piece of revenge.

But things never go as I plan.

If I could only stop thinking about Morag.

Jakob Douglas, damaged soldier and unlikely hero, returns in another desperate, adrenalin fueled adventure from Gavin Smith, author of the widely acclaimed Veteran.
