Andromeda's War will be released December 2nd. Pre-order now!
“Returning to his Legion of the Damned universe, Dietz illustrates why he’s a master of the genre" (RT Book Reviews). And in Andromeda’s War, his heroine will face her ultimate test—as a battle-scarred legionnaire and as an innocent young woman who once lost everything…
Now a platoon leader, Legionnaire Andromeda McKee seems to have successfully left behind her true identity of Lady Catherine “Cat” Carletto, one of the last two surviving members of the Carletto family targeted for death by Empress Ophelia.
After failing at her one shot at vengeance, Andromeda had been questioning her own resolve. But now her uncle has been killed in a government raid back on Earth, leaving her as the last Carletto standing—and the family’s only chance for justice…
A chance that comes when the empress’s ship crashes on a hostile planet and Andromeda is assigned to head up the rescue mission. As a legionnaire, Andromeda McKee has countless kills under her belt. But when faced with her greatest enemy, it will be Cat Carletto who has to pull the trigger on the one who really matters…
From the December 2013 RT Book Review of
by William C. Dietz
"Andromeda McKee is one hell of a heroine. Dietz is a rarity among male science fiction authors: He can write a steely, badass female protagonist without making her seem unreasonably stoic. He allows McKee a bit (but just a bit!) of softness and vulnerability, making this debutante-turned-army sergeant into a completely engaging three-dimensional character. Fans of military sci-fi will especially appreciate McKee’s head for strategy and the cleverness she shows in dealing with nemeses (like ruthless empress Ophelia and vindictive superior Heacox) and allies (like ne’er-do-well buddy Larkin) alike. If you don’t root for “the Steel Bitch,” I just don’t know what to do with you."
