The fifth book in Lisanne Norman’s Sholan Alliance long-running science fiction series of alien contact and interspecies conflictThe world of Jalna had revealed many secrets to the Sholan-Human teams sent there on a rescue mission. They had discovered one of the methods Valtegans used to control other races, had learned how deceitful one of their own allies had been, and were about to begin negotiations for an alliance with several newly met races. Yet the planetary conflicts had led to the injured Carrie and Kusac being placed in cryo on a non-Sholan vessel, with Kaid desperately trying to rush them back to Sholan medical facilities. But before they could reach their rendezvous point, the ship they were on was caught in a Valtegan trap, leaving Kaid barely enough time to send Carrie’s and Kusac’s life-pods into space, in the hope that they’d be found by friendly forces. Kaid was certain he and his people were doomed, until a massive vessel suddenly materialized, scooping up both Kaid’s ship and the Valtegan foe. Now all of them were prisoners of a completely unknown people. And only time would tell whether they’d fallen into the clutches of an even more deadly enemy than the Valtegans….

Praise for the Sholan Alliance series: “Series fans will have a field day (or two) reading this delightful, but complex tale with multiple subplots.” —Midwest Book Review “Dark Nadir is full of fast-paced adventure and has more alien species that the Star Wars cantina! Fans of Lisanne Norman’s Sholan Alliance series will love this newest installment. Science fiction catnip.” —B&N Explorations “Norman expands the exciting concepts of her first book into an extraordinary look into an alien culture, developing a rich variety of subplots that will leave you desperate to find out what happens next.” —Romantic Times Magazine “Norman is a masterful storyteller, and this is a gripping story.” —Kliatt “Lisanne Norman handles her material superbly—knowing just when to ease up on drama and go for humor.” —Starlog Magazine “This is a big, sprawling, convoluted novel sure to appeal to fans of C.J. Cherryh and others who have made space adventure their territory.” —SF Chronicle
