Today, I want to show off the full original cover art for The First Officer in all its glory. Fred Gambino is the man behind it, and as always, he’s created a piece of art that is fascinating in and of itself. I like for a cover image to tell a story of its own in some way, which has been the driving inspiration for my Alpha Protocol covers, and it’s something Fred always pulls off with flair.
Here’s the complete image, which will form the full cover of the paperback version.
The story picks up shortly after the end of book one. It’s a self-contained story, so although it’s part of a bigger story arc, you can pick up this book and enjoy it even without having read part one. Here’s the back cover copy to give you an idea of what it’s about:
Forgotten treasures lie waiting in deep space. So too does the greatest threat humanity has ever encountered…
Assigned to a new warship with cutting-edge technology, Jack Samson returns to the Frontier, determined to cast off the question marks over his previous conduct.
The Navy ventures ever farther beyond the Frontier, with fantastic new discoveries becoming a daily occurrence. As humanity reaches for these technological riches, it enters a deadly contest with a lethal adversary, the very survival of the human race being at stake.
Samson and his crew face the fight of their lives as they seek to secure ancient technological wonders and humanity’s place amongst the stars.
