by Matt Betts
When a mysterious enemy attacks his adopted nation of Korva, Earthman Carson Napier discovers his own arrival on Venus years ago may have unknowingly triggered the strike. The invaders’ trail of death and destruction leads Carson and his beloved princess Duare headlong into battle against a seemingly invincible, primordial race. But that is not Carson’s only challenge, for an uncanny phenomenon has entangled him with two strange individuals from beyond spacetime. Will Carson be able to solve the mysteries of his past and the enigmatic visitors before the entire planet descends into chaos?
Bonus Novelette: “Pellucidar: Dark of the Sun” by Christopher Paul Carey
Includes an all-new novelette introducing the Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe’s newest heroine, Victory Harben.
When the very principle of physics behind the Gridley Wave mysteriously fails, cutting off all communication between the hollow world of Pellucidar and the outer crust, inventor Jason Gridley seeks help from his brilliant young protégé, Victory Harben. Together they recover timeworn records from deep in the ruins of a dead Mahar city, hoping to use knowledge of Pellucidar’s former reptilian overlords to jumpstart the Gridley Wave. But when their experiment goes terribly wrong, Jason and Victory suddenly find themselves drawn into the inscrutable machinations of an ancient evil.
