(2013)
(The ninth book in the Annihilation series)
A novel by

 
From the International Bestselling Author, Saxon Andrew, comes the newest book in the Annihilation series, Dahlia's Deception. The Star's Realm is faced with a coming invasion from another universe that will overwhelm the Realm. The Planters are doing all they can to delay the invasion but the Five Major Civilizations are too powerful for them to take on alone. The invasion appears to be unavoidable.

The Planters are also beginning to suspect the Realm has an agenda that poses a threat to their continued existence. They are being set up to take a fall and no one sees it coming. Dahlia is caught in the middle of the intrigue and knows if the truth is revealed, her people will be isolated and left in a universe where a doomsday device is planned to be launched by the Gardners. If the device is activated, no intelligent life will survive.
She is walking a very tight line between saving her people or allowing the trillions in the Stars Realm to die. She's caught in the middle and doesn't know that everything she believes to be true is going to be shattered by an ultimate evil no one sees coming.
Excerpt from; Dahlia's Deception
The Twelve Mites arrived in a star system with a blue and green planet glowing brightly inside the habitation zone. Ten silver starships hung in orbit above the planet and it was clear they were doing serious business with the planet's inhabitants. A large city on the surface had fires raging out of control; it was hit from space with heavy blaster beams and thirty buildings had been vaporized in the center of the huge city.
"You will start sending the shipments now!"
"We'll do it, but many of us will starve if you take most of our food storage."
"We can resolve that issue for you by simply finishing the destruction of your city. That should relieve the pressure of feeding your population."
"No, that won't be necessary; we'll start loading the shuttles immediately."

The Rageon Wing Commander smiled. This planet had been visited by the Royal's Tax Collectors six months earlier and he knew how efficient they were at stealing the planet to the point of poverty. However, his wing had some time off and he decided to conduct a raid to increase his wealth. The Royals would never know about the raid and, if the locals told them, they wouldn't have any way to find out who did it. The food stores he was taking could be converted to rare metals in the periphery of the Kingdom and would make him wealthy. He leaned back in his command chair and smiled. He was already counting how much he would make from the theft.

"Brian, do you have your targets."
"Yes Sir; those Rageon Ships are being pretty heavy handed with the inhabitants."
"Let's get this done before they start the shuttles lifting; on my mark; three, two, one, MARK!"
The ten silver ships hung in orbit with their landing bays open and their force fields down to receive the shuttles lifting from the planet. Twelve blue-green pulses reached out from empty space and hit every Silver Ship. Each of the two Major Battleships in the Rageon Wing was hit by two pulses. The ten ships glowed brilliant green and then started disintegrating. In less than ten seconds, there was nothing left in orbit above the planet. The twelve Mites jumped away leaving the planet's leaders in total confusion wondering what had happened. Three weeks passed and they began unloading the shuttles. It appeared no one would starve this year.

This review is from: Annihilation Series-Searching for a Hero Saxon Andrew has developed a much better story and even better characters. Ping and Delilah became great friends and warriors in the inter-galactic war. New stage is set for a war of a different kind in the next book. I can't wait to get it.
