Overview

Sequel to Sunset of the Gods and Blood of Heroes. Don Maitz cover (Captain Morgan's Rum artist).

Pirates of the Caribbean meets times traveling heroes and godlike aliens. Sequel to Sunset of the Gods and Blood of Heroes.

Special operations officer Jason Thanou of the Temporal Regulatory Authority must once again plunge into Old Earth’s blood-drenched past to combat the plots of the Transhumanist underground to subvert that past and create a secret history leading up to the fulfillment of their mad dream of transforming humanity into a race of gods and monsters.

Jason and his companions travel to the seventeenth century to encounter the real pirates of the Caribbean—including a beautiful she-pirate who turns out to be Transhumanist renegade. To Jason’s horror, he also learns that the Teloi aliens who were the grim reality behind the pagan pantheons of antiquity—aliens Jason believed he’d successfully destroyed—are still active, and aiding the Transhumanists in founding an unspeakable cult. What’s more, these are a different—and far more dangerous—breed of Teloi than before.

Jason must somehow thwart the plans of the sinister allies while at the same time preventing reality itself from falling into chaos. In the end he finds himself venturing into space with a totally unexpected ally: Captain Henry Morgan.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This rousing nautical adventure—the third novel featuring the Temporal Regulatory Authority (after Sunset of the Gods)—sees Cmdr. Jason Thanou leading a team back to the Caribbean of the 1660s to investigate an anomaly. As always, Thanou’s mission is to seek out and thwart the continuing Transhumanist efforts to conquer the future by subverting the past. Embedded as members of the legendary privateer Capt. Henry Morgan’s crew, Thanou and his companions embark on riveting escapades, running afoul of Transhumanist saboteurs and the enigmatic female pirate Zenobia. When the mission goes horribly wrong, Thanou must team up with some unlikely allies to make sure everything happens as it’s supposed to. White expertly blends historical and futuristic elements (including historically accurate depictions of white men’s treatment of women and people of color) to create a fast-paced, detail-rich tale, seamlessly inserting his own inventions into factual events. While the frequent info dumps are occasionally distracting, this remains an exciting, engaging story, accessible to new readers and thoroughly satisfying for established fans. (Aug.)
