JUST RELEASED: Winged Hussars

Tuesday , 18, July 2017 4 Comments

The newest Four Hoursemen novel by Mark Wandrey arrives.

For more than a century, Winged Hussars has been the richest of Earth’s mercenary companies, as well as the only one to specialize in space warfare. Led by Alexis Cromwell, they have carved out a reputation in the galaxy for being dependable, unflappable, and lethally efficient. Until people began shooting at them everywhere they went.

Rick Culper left Earth in the hopes of finding a job as a merc. A natural at fighting in the armed suits known as CASPers, he finally caught on with one of the premier Four Horsemen companies, but it’s with the Winged Hussars, and the company’s prospects are beginning to look bleak.

Traps have been laid throughout a number of systems, and Commander Alexis Cromwell and her flagship, Pegasus, will be hard-pressed to make it back to their secret base. Even with Rick’s help, the situation is much worse than anyone in the Hussars could have imagined. The Four Horsemen are being hunted, and the Hussar’s future is dark. But there’s one thing Alexis’ enemies didn’t count on—Alexis Cromwell is nobody’s prey.

Reviewer praise for the Four Horsemen series:

“This is the kind of book that makes me want to get into that suit, load onto a drop ship, and head to a planet. What could be better really? Books like this made me want science and engineering to open up new doors for human exploration and adventure. I’m glad to find that feeling again.”

“Fast paced, extraterrestrial villains you love to hate, military sci-fi with armored suits. What’s not to love about this book?”

“If you want the taste of adventure and mercenaries (and more!) then this is the thing for you.”

    Three generic giant robot covers and now you got a weasel with a raygun on cover 4?

    If you got a story with raygun weasels, put those suckers front and center on book 1!

    A buddy of mine who saw the cover was like,
    “Space ferrets? Sign me up.”

    Wandrey listed Heinlein, Weber and Drake as influences. If only he had mentioned Poul Anderson, that would’ve been a homerun in my ballpark. Weber has some Anderson in ‘im, but not enough, IMO. That said, this series looks very cool. Good covers as well.

    Agreed. They have my attention.

  • Mike says:

    The first three covers need to be changed asap. They are come-off as boring and generic. If you had put the weasel the gun I would have bought them sooner
