New York Times bestselling author David Weber and nationally bestselling author Jacob Holo have teamed up again to bring sci-fi fans the next installment in the Gordian Protocol series. Both authors join Books on Tap Live to discuss their new, action-packed sequel, The Valkyrie Protocol, hitting shelves this September.

This explosive, time-traveling, space opera opens with a shocking discovery made by Agent Raibert Kaminski and the crew of the Transtemporal Vehicle Kleio. Out in the unknown reaches of the multiverse the crew finds a temporal implosion has claimed two whole universes, and time is running out to solve the mystery. While Raibert and his crew don’t know what caused it, they do know one thing. Reckless time travel was involved.

Back on their home universe, SysGov, Raibert’s old colleagues propose an expedition into the past to branch the timeline by preventing the Plague of Justinian, one of the worst pandemics in human history. Meanwhile, SysGov’s ostensibly friendly multiverse neighbor, the xenophobic Admin, is amassing a fleet of advanced, heavily armed time machines with SysGov firmly in the crosshairs.
