2014-03 final cover THE ENCELADUS CRISISThe second book in Michael J. Martinez’s science fiction mash-up series is now available in mass market paperback!!

THE ENCELADUS CRISIS picks up where Book #1, THE DAEDALUS INCIDENT, leaves off – with an adventure that spans worlds and rides sailing ships through space.

GeekDad says, “Martinez delivers again — wooden sailing ships battling it out in space, Earth astronauts discovering an ancient alien temple on one of Saturn’s moons, and an evil alien warlord preparing a takeover of two worlds…This is something new and unique and completely entertaining. Hard science fiction in one corner and Alchemy in the other.”

Michael talks about this re-packagaing and release on his blog here!

Lieutenant Commander Shaila Jain has been given the assignment of her dreams: the first manned mission to Saturn. But there’s competition and complication when she arrives aboard the survey ship, Armstrong. The Chinese are vying for control of the critical moon Titan, and the moon Enceladus may harbor secrets deep under its icy crust. Back on Earth, Project DAEDALUS now seeks to defend against other dimensional incursions, but there are other players interested in opening the door between worlds . . . and they’re getting impatient.

For Thomas Weatherby, it’s been nineteen years since he was second lieutenant aboard the HMS Daedalus. Now captain of the seventy-four-gun Fortitude, Weatherby helps destroy the French fleet at the Nile and must chase an escaped French ship from Egypt to Saturn, home of the enigmatic and increasingly unstable aliens who call themselves the Xan. Meanwhile, in Egypt, alchemist Andrew Finch has ingratiated himself with Napoleon’s forces . . . and finds the true, horrible reason why the French invaded Egypt in the first place.
