Overview

Nebula Award-winning author Walter Jon Williams returns to the sweeping space opera adventure of his Praxis universe with Impersonations, an exciting new novel featuring the hero of Dread Empire's Fall

Having offended her superiors by winning a battle without permission, Caroline Sula has been posted to the planet Earth, a dismal backwater where careers go to die. But Sula has always been fascinated by Earth history, and she plans to reward herself with a long, happy vacation amid the ancient monuments of humanity's home world.

Sula may be an Earth history buff, but there are aspects of her own history she doesn't want known. Exposure is threatened when an old acquaintance turns up unexpectedly. Someone seems to be forging evidence that would send her to prison. And all that is before someone tries to kill her.

If she's going to survive, Sula has no choice but to make some history of her own.

Thousands of years in the future, Captain the Lady Sula is a war hero who almost single-handedly defeated the alien Naxids when they attempted to seize the empire of the Praxis from the vicious Shaa, who rule the Earth with bloody tyranny. She’s been exiled to Earth, now considered a backwater planet, as punishment for renegade actions. Sula has always wanted to see Earth, and now she’ll have her chance, but when someone from her past contacts her, she’s terrified that her secrets just might catch up with her. Nebula-winner Williams returns to the world of the Dread Empire’s Fall series (The Praxis, etc.) for a new tale featuring a flawed, brilliantly tenacious woman who is determined to succeed no matter the cost. Sula’s globe-hopping and almost obsessive interest in human history and behavior (including a future version of live-action role-playing) provide an exciting backdrop for crackling action scenes and vivid storytelling. Readers will savor this intriguing glimpse into the life of a woman who struggles with her own identity and the price of her actions, and who may be up against an enemy even more cunning than she is. (Sept.)
