Cover & Synopsis: HARDSHIP by Jean Johnson (+ A “THEIRS NOT TO REASON WHY” Cover Gallery)

Thanks, Amazon. You just reminded me that I’m behind on my reading. I just found a listing for the upcoming novel Damnation by Jean Johnson, the fourth book in her military sf series Theirs Not to Reason Why, the first two of which I enjoyed.

See a larger version of the cover below.

Here’s the synopsis:

It began with a terrible vision of the future. Compelled by her precognitive abilities, Ia must somehow save her home galaxy long after she’s gone. Now Jean Johnson presents the long-awaited epic conclusion to her national bestselling military science fiction series…

Demoralized, their ship destroyed, Ia’s Damned must fight their way out of a planet-bound blockade and back into space. But there is more happening here on Dabin than meets even Ia’s inner eye.

Some of the Feyori, energy-based beings of vast power and arrogance, are moving to block her efforts under the direction of her counter-faction foe, Miklinn. The Terran Army Division stationed on Dabin is not cooperating with her battle plans. Events are not happening as Ia has foreseen, and too many people are now in grave danger, thanks to alien Meddling.

All these hardships are threatening to derail Ia’s carefully laid plans. The Meddlers, however, have made one fatal mistake:

They’re just making Bloody Mary mad.

  1. I thought you were tight with Jean…why didn’t she tell you herself? 🙂

    Another series I really should read…

  2. Hate the covers. Looks like she spends way too much time on her hair.
