Cursed Command

Captain Kat Falcone owes her life and career to her former right-hand man, William McElney, and she did everything in her power to make sure he was front and center for a promotion. But now that he has it, she fears he’ll have to watch his back. Captain McElney has been assigned to HMS *Uncanny* —nicknamed *Unlucky* —a heavy cruiser tainted by the mysterious deaths of two former captains and rumors of mutineers. Nevertheless, as the interstellar war with the Theocracy rages on, the *Uncanny* will travel in tandem with Kat’s starship, HMS *Lightning* , to the notoriously lawless Jorlem Sector to forge alliances for the Commonwealth and quash rampant piracy. As Captain McElney struggles to whip a hostile crew of miscreants into a disciplined fighting force, Kat is saddled with an undermining new executive officer—an untested aristocrat whose bigotry colors his sense of duty. Both captains wage war against ruthless pirates while conspirators aboard the *Uncanny* plot to seize the ship. When the starships find themselves locked in a death match with an enemy juggernaut, Kat must make a desperate and devastating sacrifice. **

### L’autore
Christopher G. Nuttall has been planning science-fiction books since he learned how to read. Born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland, he studied history, which inspired him to imagine new worlds and create an alternate-history website. Those imaginings provided a solid base for storytelling and eventually led him to write books. He has published at least fifty novels and one novella through Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing, including the bestselling Ark Royal series. He has also published twenty-seven novels with small presses, including the Royal Sorceress series, the Bookworm series, *A Life Less Ordinary* , and *Sufficiently Advanced Technology* with Elsewhen Press, as well as the Schooled in Magic series through Twilight Times Books. *Cursed Command* is his third book in the Angel in the Whirlwind series, following *The Oncoming Storm* and *Falcone Strike*. Chris resides in Edinburgh with his partner, muse, and critic, Aisha. Visit his blog at www.chrishanger.wordpress.com and his website at www.chrishanger.net.
