The day has finally arrived! Finally, Raven Stratagem, the superb sequel to Yoon Ha Lee's smash hit of the summer in 2016 Ninefox Gambit, is in the wild.
The highly anticipated Raven Stratagem has been garnering rave reviews all over the place, and has been on the receiving end of a huge amount of very well deserved buzz.
In case you missed it, here's what you can expect in Raven Stratagem:
by Yoon Ha Lee
War. Heresy. Madness.
Shuos Jedao is unleashed. The long-dead general, preserved with exotic technologies as a weapon, has possessed the body of gifted young captain Kel Cheris.
Now, General Kel Khiruev’s fleet, racing to the Severed March to stop a fresh enemy incursion, has fallen under Jedao’s sway. Only Khiruev’s aide, Lieutenant Colonel Kel Brezan, is able to shake off the influence of the brilliant but psychotic Jedao.
The rogue general seems intent on defending the hexarchate, but can Khiruev—or Brezan—trust him? For that matter, can they trust Kel Command, or will their own rulers wipe out the whole swarm to destroy one man?
