Maximum Offense (Death's Head, Book 2)

David Gunn


With Death’s Head, David Gunn rocketed onto the scene within the so much explosive and wonderful technological know-how fiction debut for the reason that Richard Morgan’s Altered Carbon. Now Gunn is back–and so is Sven Tveskoeg: delinquent, antihero, anti-you-name-it, a one-man killing spree whose ally is an clever handgun with a nasty perspective and whose worst enemy is, good, with reference to every body else.

And if Sven weren’t harmful adequate already, upload within the deadly alien parasite that is living in his throat . . . and is able to bending house and time. Then there’s the truth that Sven’s genetic make-up is barely 98.2 percentage human, the remainder being undetermined yet in all probability contributing to his more suitable therapeutic skills, more desirable power, strange agility, and awesome sociopathic trends. the result's one heavily badass soldier with a hair-trigger mood and a chip on his shoulder the scale of a small moon. those are features that might doom a guy to felony or worse in any good society.

Luckily, Sven doesn’t reside in an honest society. He lives within the empire of OctoV, a tyrant who's half computing device, half boy, half god, and all evil. Sven’s traits have introduced him to OctoV’s own realization and earned him a lieutenant’s fee within the Death’s Head, the elite corps of assassins and enforcers whose objective in lifestyles is to kill and die for the better glory of OctoV.

Sven’s new task? Lead his ragtag band of Death’s Head rejects–the Aux, brief for auxiliaries–to the unreal global of Hekati. apparently a citizen of the United loose, an empire not just vaster than OctoV’s yet way more technologically complicated, has long gone lacking there. Now it’s as much as Sven to rescue the negative soul.

But Hekati seems to be a vicious den of backstabbing and betrayal, the place not anything and nobody will be depended on, least of all of the greenhorn colonel installed cost of the project on the final second. It appears like an individual wishes Sven Tveskoeg dead.

So what else is new?
