Description

"A gripping read that moves at warp speed." -- Jack Campbell on The Lazarus War: Artefact

For someone who has died and come back as many times as Conrad Harris, the nickname Lazarus is well-deserved. His elite military teams are specialists in death -running suicide missions in simulant bodies to combat the alien race known as the Krell.But now the Krell Empire has wreaked such devastation that military command is desperate for a new strategy. And Harris and his team are being sent on a mission that could finally turn the tide of the war.


Praise For The Lazarus War: Origins

"A gripping read that moves at warp speed."
Jack Campbell

"Gripping, gritty and unsentimental - Sawyer shows us how perilous future war can be."
Michael Cobley, on The Lazarus War: Artefact

"A hostile race of alien biomechs somewhat in the mould of H. R. Giger aliens . . . terrorism, subterfuge and traitors . . . starships sporting particle beam weapons, railguns the size of skyscrapers, laser batteries, missiles . . . And then there are the uber-human super-soldiers clad in powered armour and wielding plasma weapons . . . Is that enough for you? . . . This, dear readers, is the good stuff. Recommended."
