The Very Last Book in the Imperial Hammer Series Is Here

I’ve managed to finish quite a few series in my writing career.  And usually, when I do write “the end” at the end of the last book, I have a moderate-to-severe letdown sensation.  The story is done and I’ll no longer be spending time with those characters.

Depending on how long I’ve been writing the series (and under my other pen names, some of my series are in double digits and I’ve been writing them for years), I can actually go through withdrawal pains.  That’s usually when side-stories get written, too.  🙂

However, with the Imperial Hammer series, I didn’t get quite the same letdown as I normally do, because I already knew, before “the end” that I would roll right into the next series in the same universe.

As I write this email, that is, in fact, what I’m doing:  World building, character building and series-arc building for the new, spin-off series to this one.

But in the meantime, book 5 (and the last) in the Imperial Hammer, Destroyer of Worlds, is now out for pre-order.

The Empire is crumbling and humanity is on its knees.

The petulant, self-aware Array has retaliated.  It has destroyed a space station, home to a million people, and stranded Danny and her crew on the surface of the tidally locked Nijeliya II.  They must scratch for survival as best they can.

While Danny works to save the city and her people, her fury over the Array’s murder of her friends and loved ones stews deep inside.  She will have her revenge, no matter what the cost.

Only Nijeliya is a red star and notorious for throwing out superflares that can threaten the life of everything living thing.  Time is running out, not just for Danny and her crew, but for everyone in the galaxy.

Destroyer of Worlds is the fifth and final book in the Imperial Hammer space opera science fiction series by award-winning SF author Cameron Cooper.
