The Hammer of Darkness
(TOR, Mass Market)
Interstellar adventure in a galaxy of gods and spaceships!
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."
Praise for Hammer of Darkness
