Two amazing science fiction adventures by bestselling author L. E. Modesitt, Jr.
What lies beneath the millions of orbiting nanotech satellites that shroud the world called Haze?
Major Keir Roget's mission reveals a culture on Haze seemingly familiar, yet frighteningly alien. But he isn't certain how much of what he sees is real--or how to convey a danger he cannot even prove to his superiors, if he can escape Haze.
"The Hammer of Darkness"
Martin Martel is an exile in trouble with the gods.
"You know about the gods, Martel. The ones like Apollo who can kill with a gesture, manipulate your feelings with a song, throw thunderbolts if they feel like it..."
Are the gods really gods? Or men and women with larger-than-life powers playing god over a planet that wasn't really a planet?
Whatever the answer, Martin Martel must battle the gods for his life, love, and the fate of the galaxy.
