Laura Lam introduces Seven Mercies
18 January 2022
Laura Lam joins us at Forbidden Planet TV to talk about the second novel in her epic duology co-created with Elizabeth May: Seven Mercies, the sequel to the brilliantly-reviewed Seven Devils!
THE MOST-WANTED REBELS IN THE UNIVERSE ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN SAVE IT: After an ambush leaves the Novantae resistance in tatters, the survivors scatter across the galaxy. Wanted by two great empires, the bounty on any rebel’s head is enough to make a captor filthy rich. And the seven devils? Biggest score of them all.
To avoid attacks, the crew of Zelus scavenge for supplies on long-abandoned Tholosian outposts.
Not long after the remnants of the rebellion settle briefly on Fortuna, Ariadne gets a message with unimaginable consequences: the Oracle has gone rogue. In a planned coup against the Empire’s new ruler, the AI has developed a way of mass programming citizens into mindless drones. The Oracle’s demand is simple: the AI wants its daughter Ariadne back at any cost.
Time for an Impossible to Infiltrate mission: high chance of death, low chance of success. The devils will have to use their unique skills, no matter the sacrifice, and pair up with old enemies.
Get to the heart of the Empire.
Destroy the Oracle.
Burn it all to the ground.
