Fueled by the Soul. Commanded by the Dead.

Jack Donolon is the most powerful pilot in existence, a hero of Earth with a mind fractured by his seraph. On the far side of the galaxy, he uncovers a terrible truth about the seraphs and their pilots. Now he must return on a mission no one will understand, to face and kill the people who once called him friend and comrade.

But the death he will bring is insignificant next to the destruction that will follow, should he fail …

From national bestselling author Jacob Holo comes an action-packed read for fans of Gundam, Evangelion, Pacific Rim, and other kick-butt giant robot adventures!

Praise for Bane of the Dead

★★★★ “…Feels like a love letter to the mecha space genre. If you’re a fan of anime and wonder what a novel written the same way would look like, this is the book.”
– anonymous, Amazon Review

★★★★★ “Do you like Star Wars? Did you think it needed more giant robots? Well, if you did, this is the book for you!”
– icedsoftball, Amazon Review

★★★★ “A fun read in line with most Japanese mecha mythos.”
– James, Amazon Review

★★★★★ “Overall, this is an action-packed book! If you’re looking to scratch that mechs itch (like I was), look no further. The book is basically Gundam with a more space opera twist.”
– anonymous, Amazon Review

★★★★ “This was a well-written book. I can definitely recommend it to fans of the genre.”
– D. Braithwaite, Amazon Review

★★★★★ “You have single giant robot suits which can destroy entire fleets, an ancient evil who may not be as bad as all that, and a pathway to another dimension that’s just coming onto the scene… What else do you want, really?”
– Ben Fitzpatrick, Amazon Review
