Weston Ochse, the new titan of modern military science fiction, returns with a brand new offering and it is everything we’ve been waiting for! Weston is known for his thought-provoking and action-packed Task Force Ombra series published by Solaris books.
New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry has called Weston ‘the new voice of action science fiction’ and we couldn’t agree more. Weston’s Burning Sky fulfills on the promise first seen in the Task Force Ombra series and raises the bar for thrilling, emotive, impossible-odds-that-must-be-overcome kind of military science fiction.
On this latest acquisition, Solaris Editor-in-Chief commented:
“No one writes like Weston Ochse. There is a veracity to his writing that tells the reader he knows of which he writes. Coupled with a great sense of how to tell a story and a commitment to portraying the travails of combat truthfully, this makes Ochse one of the most significant writers of military genre fiction around. Burning Sky is an extraordinary new work, and may well be Weston’s best novel yet.”
Burning Sky will be published by Solaris in Ocotber 2018.
by Weston Ochse
Everything is dangerous in Afghanistan, nothing more so than the mission of an Operational Support Team or O.S.T. Comprised of active duty military, civilians, and contractors, all veterans, these men and women spend seasons in hell to not only try and fix what’s is broken in each of them, but also to make enough bank to change their fortunes.
Seven months after their last mission, now safely back on American soil, they feel like they’ve left something undone…like maybe they’ve left something, or someone, behind. And the feeling is driving them mad. One by one they come together, and discover that they’ve all been having the same dream…a dream of a woman, a goat, and a sky that won’t stop burning.
