“Elvians” Released

“Elvians,” the eighteenth novel in the Silver Ships series, is now available on Amazon U.S. The print version will be delayed two to three days. Expect the audiobook in late December or early January.

Summary: Alex Racine’s fleet draws a first-contact conflict. The Omnian fleet sails from alliance space in an effort to interdict an alien ship that arrives at the Worlds of Lights, the Ollassa system.

Alex’s fleet arrives too late to prevent the Ollassa from attempting to oust the interlopers. The ill-equipped Ollassa attack the harvesting machines, and alien fighters destroy every Ollassa ship.

      Brilliant opening to Elvians…dives right into the story; ie, business at hand. It raises the seriousness of the story, the critical level of the situation, etc.

      I am only 38 pages in and had to comment. This IS and will be a notable entry in The Silver Ships saga.

      Brilliant, Scott…just brilliant.

      (note: I’ll update when done with book)

        Done. So well written Scott. It is one of my fav books in the series, in good company with Haraken, Sol, Nua’ll, and Alliance and Pyreans series, with The Silver Ships book #1 King. Elvians is positive and always forward moving. For me, it created a good amount of suspense. Alex held his cards closer to his chest, even from his inner circle I thought. He also showed a new side, a more ‘this is how it has to be or we wash our hands’ than we’ve maybe seen before. I realize it was meant to drive parties to the path he wanted to take but it felt like it was aIso a change in his patience level or attitude; ie, no nonsense. Older age perhaps, maturity, tired? I also thoroughly enjoyed revisiting the Vinium.

        Thank you again Scott.

    Scott,
    Just finished my second read of Elvians. First time through, I get so caught up in the story I tend to rush, second time I can go a little slower and enjoy all the little nuances. Many thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable and thought provoking tale full of interesting characters and ideas.
    I must admit that I look forward to the next installment of Silver Ships with mixed feelings. I want to read the darn thing but know the series is coming to end. Sad times for all of us Silver Ships fans.
    Many thanks for another great book.
    Steve

      I’m glad you enjoyed the book, Steve. I’ve a thought for you about the Silver Ships series. Don’t lament the end of the series. In concert with the Pyreans, the twin series will encompass 24 novels! Instead, you might want to get excited and encourage me about my next series, Gate Ghosts. Just a suggestion. 🙂

    I am late in writing a comment… (I read it the same day it was published)…
    I thoroughly enjoyed the book, no surprises there as the quality of the writing is something I have come to expect… Congratulations on another smashing success!!!!!!
    I can’t wait to read how you will finish the series and now very intrigued to see where you will go with gate ghosts… (any hints as to when it will come out?)

    Congratulations once again!!!

      I’m glad you enjoyed “Elvians,” Enrique. If I maintain my writing tempo, I’ll probably end the Silver Ships series with two books in early 2021. This would mean that the Gate Ghost series would begin in the summer. Thanks for the generous comments and the encouragement. 🙂
