List of the Dead (Armada Wars Book 2)

Following on directly from the climax of Steal from the Devil, the second volume of R. Curtis Venture's breakout series builds fruitfully on the foundations established in the first book. This veritable page-turner propels readers through the chaos of invasion, straight towards a savage final chapter.

What began as a border struggle has now erupted into open conflict. Humanity and the Viskr are at each other's throats, and for the first time in a generation war is a credible threat to the Many Worlds of mankind.

Operative Elm Caden however suspects the Viskr did not attack humanity first, and he is determined to root out the fugitives he believes orchestrated the hostilities. But they have fled into the barely charted Deep Shadows, and after the battle at Woe Tantalum it is clear they are allied with a previously unknown power... a power as hostile as it is mysterious.

While the Imperial Navy engages the Viskr fleets, Caden and his companions -- stoic soldier Rendir Throam, and redoubtable pilot Euryce Eilentes -- have received new orders from up on high: find and kill Maber Castigon, before he can assassinate any more Imperial Shards.

But with the Viskr making increasingly desperate strikes in Imperial territory, such things are easier said than done. And through the gathering chaos along the border come the rumours. Whole colonies are falling silent, great ships prowl in the darkness between the stars, and the wind whispers a warning across the Many Worlds:

Fear the Deep.

Advisory: this is the second book in a five book story.

List of the Dead is best read immediately following Steal from the Devil. The same story continues in The Ravening Deep and From Shattered Stars, also available in paperback and Kindle eBook formats. This story will end in apocalyptic style with Whom Gods Shall Fear, due 2018.

List of the Dead can now also be purchased in Kindle eBook and paperback formats as part of the Armada Wars Books 1-3 Omnibus, and is expected to arrive in audiobook format in 2018.

The Armada Wars series takes place in our own galaxy, centuries in the future. Populated with realistic characters, fascinating locales, and believable tech, the armadaverse is the perfect setting for the one thing we all want from the military science fiction genre: big bad battles.
