Star Trek: The Fall - The Poisoned Chalice cover art
The cover artwork for my latest novel The Poisoned Chalice, the fourth book in the Star Trek: The Fall miniseries has now been officially released, along the with back-cover blurb, and it's looking very cool...
That's the U.S.S. Titan in Earth orbit, the ship designed by Sean Tourangeau and rendered here by Tobias Richter. It pleases me no end that I've got what a true-blue iconic Star Trek cover - a sleek starship over a planet!
The Fall books kicked off last month with David R. George's Revelation and Dust, to be followed by Una McCormack's The Crimson Shadow, David Mack's A Ceremony of Losses, my novel and then the finale with Dayton Ward's Peacable Kingdoms. The five-book series covers a sixty day period in which the United Federation of Planets suffers a tragic attack and its explosive political fallout...
Here's the blurb:
One simple act, and the troubles of the United Federation of Planets have grown darker overnight.
The mystery behind the heinous terrorist attack that has rocked the Federation to its core grows ever deeper, and William Riker finds himself beset by rumors and half-truths as the U.S.S. Titan is ordered back to Earth on emergency orders from the admiralty.
Soon, Riker finds himself drawn into a game of political intrigue, bearing witness to members of Starfleet being detained—including people he considered friends—pending an investigation at the highest levels.
And while Riker tries to navigate the corridors of power, Titan’s tactical officer, Tuvok, is given a series of clandestine orders that lead him into a gray world of secrets, lies, and deniable operations.
Who can be trusted when the law falls silent and justice becomes a quest for revenge?
For the crew of the U.S.S. Titan, the search for answers will become a battle for every ideal the Federation stands for...
