Overview

New York Times #1 best-selling author Timothy Zahn continues his exciting Cobra series with the last entry in a new Cobra trilogy. Cobra warriors: technologically enhanced and implanted with an arsenal of covert weaponry. Jasmine Moreau Broom, descendant of a now-legendary Cobra family, must rally the Cobras to war after a devastating attack on every planet with Cobra on it nearly succeeds in wiping them out entirely.

Cobra warriors, technologically enhanced and implanted with an arsenal of covert weaponry, are the most dangerous guerilla fighters humanity has ever produced. For Jin Moreau Broom, the war is the culmination of a lifetime of Cobra service. But it is also the height of danger for herself and her family as they struggle to survive a war that none of them ever expected to see.

The Troft invasions of Qasama and the Cobra Worlds has had at least one result: it has turned long-time antagonists into uneasy and unwilling allies. As the aliens battle to consolidate their conquered territories, a small group of Cobras and Qasaman Djinn work together to create a victory that will rock the invaders to the core, a victory designed to bring other Troft demesnes into the conflict on the humans' side.

Now one young Cobra must forge a new political order as a devastating alien enemy strikes—an enemy more deadly than any humanity has ever faced.

About Timothy Zahn:
“Zahn keeps the story moving at a breakneck pace, maintaining excitement.”—Publishers Weekly

"[Y]ou can count on Timothy Zahn for three things: clean, sparse prose; good pacing; and great action scenes. The first book in the Cobra War series hits all those marks in admirable style and makes for a quick, entertaining sci-fi novel." -Blogcritics

“[Conqueror’s Heritage] is another finely wrought space adventure . . . [with] social, political and emotional complications, all of which Zahn treats with his usual skill.”—Booklist

“Zahn paints every detail [in Angelmass] with gleamy realism . . . scientific dialogue that streams with starship hardware and military trooper talk . . . immensely appealing.”—Kirkus Review

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Genetically altered Cobra warriors, equipped with hidden weapons and advanced technology, serve as elite guerrilla warriors against alien invaders. When the Troft invasion of the Cobra and Qasama worlds unites former enemies, a small group of soldiers from both armies attempts to shatter the morale of the Troft and win their subject worlds away from their conquerors. VERDICT The conclusion of Zahn's second Cobra trilogy (Cobra Alliance; Cobra Guardian) features fast-paced battle scenes, military camaraderie, and political maneuvers reminiscent of David Weber's "Honor Harrington" series. Readers of the series and military sf afficionados will enjoy this action-packed space opera.
