More About The Enceladus Crisis by Michael J. Martinez
 
 
 
Overview
Two dimensions collided on the rust-red deserts of Mars--and are destined to become entangled once more in this sequel to the critically acclaimed The Daedalus Incident.

Lieutenant Commander Shaila Jain has been given the assignment of her dreams: the first manned mission to Saturn. But there's competition and complications when she arrives aboard the survey ship Armstrong. The Chinese are vying for control of the critical moon Titan, and the moon Enceladus may harbor secrets deep under its icy crust. And back on Earth, Project DAEDALUS now seeks to defend against other dimensional incursions. But there are other players interested in opening the door between worlds . . . and they're getting impatient.

For Thomas Weatherby, it's been nineteen years since he was second lieutenant aboard HMS Daedalus. Now captain of the seventy-four-gun Fortitude, Weatherby helps destroy the French fleet at the Nile and must chase an escaped French ship from Egypt to Saturn, home of the enigmatic and increasingly unstable aliens who call themselves the Xan. Meanwhile, in Egypt, alchemist Andrew Finch has ingratiated himself with Napoleon's forces . . . and finds the true, horrible reason why the French invaded Egypt in the first place.

The thrilling follow-up to The Daedalus Incident, The Enceladus Crisis continues Martinez's Daedalus series with a combination of mystery, intrigue, and high adventure spanning two amazing dimensions.

The riveting but somewhat whiplash-inducing sequel to The Daedaelus Incident flips between an alternate 1798, where Napoleonic and English frigates battle in outer space, and 2134 stemming from our present, in which Lt. Cmdr. Shaila Jain is leading the first human survey of Saturn. A corporate Chinese ship is trying to beat the military there, only to discover something unpleasant in the ice of Saturn’s moon Enceladus. In 1798, Capt. Thomas Weatherby of the HMS Fortitude, who has “plumbed the jungles of Venus... tasted the ice of Europa, explored the mines of Mercury,” pursues a French ship to Saturn’s rings and becomes embroiled in a partisan struggle between rival factions of the alien Xan, some of whom are allied with the French. Split timelines with multiple characters make for a disorienting first half, but readers who stick with it will be rewarded with a uniquely imaginative science fantasy tale. (May)
