Synopses & Reviews
X-Men and Judge Dredd author Simon Spurrier offers a blood-drenched tale of crime and redemption, set inside the world of Elite: Dangerous Two lovers steal a spaceship and go on the run, attacking at random and reveling in the fame and glory their violence brings them. Celebrated by the jaded youth of the Federation and urged on to ever more flashy acts of destruction, they know it won't be long before they are caught and killed. But someone is following the couple—someone who knows why they are so obsessed with each other, where they are heading, and why. This someone knows more about them than they do themselves, and has another plan for their deaths. One of three distinct but subtly linked novels written by major authors who are fans of the game, this novel will be a must-buy not only the 25,000 plus people who funded the new game on Kickstarter, but also for those fans of the original game.
Based on the popular Playstation 2 video game from THQ, this is the action-packed tale of a young Fire Warrior sworn to protect the enigmatic rulers of the benevolent Tau empire who are known as the Ethereals. When one powerful Ethereal crash lands behind Imperial lines, the young Fire Warrior is sent to rescue him. But with the fierce troops of the Imperial Space Marines lying in wait, the success of the mission is far from assured.
