Walter Jon Williams’s epic space adventure, Dread Empire’s Fall, comes to its brilliant conclusion in Conventions of War
Working on opposite sides of the galaxy—one in deep space, the other undercover on an occupied planet—and haunted by personal ghosts, Captain Gareth Martinez and Lieutenant Lady Caroline Sula fight to save the Empire from the vicious, alien Naxid. In a desperate bid to stop the Naxid fleet, Martinez makes a move that could win the war . . . and lose his career. Meanwhile, Sula’s guerilla tactics may not be enough to stop the Naxid, so she’s forced to try one final, deadly gambit.
