All three volumes of The Sigil Trilogy in one print book: Siege of Stars, Scourge of Stars, and Rage of Stars.
From Nature Editor Henry Gee comes a story of breathtaking scope and beloved characters. Spanning millions of years and the breadth of the universe, The Sigil Trilogy is an epic tale that explores the nature of humanity, belief, and love.
The Universe is dying from within. No one knows how to save it, so the Elders give a young Drover a last ditch chance to stop the rot. If only she knew where to begin.
Unaware of the threat to the universe, Ruxhana Fengen Kraa, Admiral of the 17th Rigel Fleet, is about to be cashiered for a stupendous tactical error. But Special Ops has an important and most bizarre job for him.
Eons away in time, Jack Corstophine is an archaeologist on Earth with an intuition about the land that he can't put into words--until the beautiful and brilliant Jadis Markham comes into his life. Together, they discover that the landscape of Europe is far from natural. The Earth bears the scars of an ancient civilization that goes back millions of years--and has terrible implications for the future of mankind.
The Sigil Trilogy traces the lives of compelling characters--people... entities... and... species...--through time and space. It's magnificent in background, beautifully written, and with the most memorable characters. The Sigil Trilogy is spellbinding, funny, thoughtful, and touching all at the same time. Complete with complex mysteries, massive battles, romance, hot aliens, steampunk cities, good scotch, armageddon, it's all here--you won't be able to put it down.
Praise for THE SIGIL TRILOGY:
"Great stuff. Touches of Douglas Adams, Barrington Bayley, David Britton and Steve Ayelet only emphasise the splendid originality of this book. Henry Gee is thoughtful, funny, original. And pretty thoroughly mind-expanding in the tradition of Wells, David Lindsay, Stapledon and Clarke. In fact everything you yearn to find in a very good contemporary SF novel. Really enjoyed it!"
--SFWA Grandmaster Michael Moorcock
"Siege is compelling, grandiose, and breathtaking in its spacetime and its characters are intriguing, personal, and complex....This book of Henry's is going to be high on the charts."
--Greg Laden, scienceblogs.com
Cosmically deep and sensually rich, here is a very warm, enthusiastic and human book about great issues of our own world and of the whole universe, beautifully written. What can I say but: Gee Whiz! (unless somebody already has...)
"One of the very best books I've ever read."
"Henry Gee serves up a tasty stew of sex, science and space opera. Or should that read romance, rationality and retro-SF? Either way, the book is great entertainment."
--Vaughan Stanger, author of Alternate Apollos and The English Dead
"A great very-wide-screen story, with many interesting characters I cared about...the writing--and the palaeontology--are beautifully executed"
--Jack Cohen, author of Wheelers and Heaven
"Henry Gee paints a stunning, thriving universe in which readers will delight."
"I got so engrossed in it that I could not put it down."
--Lee Gimenez, bestselling author of The Nanotech Murders
"The Sigil Trilogy is magnificently panoramic in breadth--a quirky, erudite and often hilarious tale of adventure mingling epic science fiction, archaeology, palaeontology and romance. Vividly entertaining!"
--Cecilia Dart-Thornton, bestselling author of the Bitterbynde series
"SIEGE OF STARS is a fascinating story from start to finish, with great ideas, neat set pieces, and interesting characters. Gee knows his stuff."
--Eric Brown, author of Engineman
