Overview

It began with two men. They came from very different worlds—entirely different universes, in fact—one using sorcery and the other using mental powers and steam-age technology. They met in a virgin forest on a duplicate planet Earth. Neither side knows who shot first, but each blames the other, and it doesn't really matter, now, because war has begun.

War between the universes is the last thing responsible leaders on either side want. But the fury of their respective populations, xenophobic fear of the unknown, and cries for "justice" (or vengeance), are all driving both sides towards the brink. And unscrupulous, power-hungry men—and Arcana and Sharona alike—have agendas of their own.

The fuse has been lit, and a war stretching across the universes, fought between dragons, spells, and crossbows and repeating rifles, machine guns, and artillery is erupting in white-hot rage and fury. Where it will end—and how—no one knows

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In this new twist on the old story of worlds colliding, two planetary cultures are locked in a war that nobody wanted. The Arcana civilization relies on magic; the rival forces of Sharona use psi-powered science, but neither military force can permanently gain the upper hand or stop the slaughter. David Weber and Linda Evans's nuclear-propelled fiction about two parallel earths in combat promises to hold you hostage.

    Weber & Evans score again

    Hell Hath No Fury is the second in the Hell's Gate series and Weber & Evans kept building the suspense. Switching scenes between the two cultures is well done and moves the plot along at an enjoyable pace. I only wish that the readers didn't have to wait so long for the next installment.

    Excellent science fiction

    The Union of Arcana using magic as its energy source and the Sharona employing psionic technology as theirs have sent numerous expeditions exploring other universes without encountering any other sentient beings including each other. Each world understood the importance of control when that anticipated first encounter with an intelligent life form occurs as scientists on both orbs expect it to eventually happen one day. The Arcanian led by Hundred Jasak Olderhan enter a portal into the Sharona universe where one of his soldiers fires the shot heard around the multiverse (see HELL¿S GATE). --- Though Hundred Jasak Olderhan tries to prevent war, hostilities have broken out between the two societies over the incident and control of Hell¿s Gate. The Arcanian wizards ride their dragons with spells as their weapons into battle the Sharona counter with their steam driven trains and boats and weapons like machine guns. As mass deaths occur on both sides the likes of neither have seen before, the Arcanian and the Sharona demand vengeance for their fallen warriors. That includes many innocent civilians amidst the dead. Both sides are used to being on the top of the food chain and with grievances to inflame the rabble by power seekers, the multiverse is at war on multiple earths with more deaths added to the hostilities. --- Book 2 in the Multiverse can stand alone, but is much more enhanced by reading HELL GATE as that tale provides deeper insight into understanding the differing societies. Though more entrenched as a military science fiction story line than the first encounter plot of the previous thriller, HELL HATH NO FURY is filled with action on several earths as two societies collide due to both distrusting the other worsened by an inability to communicate. --- Harriet Klausner

    Good Story but Flawed in its Execution

    This title suffers from a familiar ailment which is having a good story concept flawed by a boring, over-taxing narrative. The concept may not be original (two sides, as different as night is to day, is at war with each other) but this story could have shined if narrative could have communicated the military battle and tactics, the political manoeuvring, and human drama more excitingly. The characters feel bland and why do they have such ridiculous names that sound like Bollywood actors or Neanderthals? Damn you Dungeons and Dragons influence, I'm surprise Goraxx wasn't a character's name. Why does everyone snort so frequently? Anyway, this title is completely average.
