A sudden attack. A mysterious stranger. And deadly secrets.

In this nonstop action thriller, a small team of human workers terraforming a lifeless world is attacked by a ruthless menace. Their only hope for survival is Jon Ranger, a mysterious stranger who arrives at the same time as the threat. Ranger has a history with what is attacking, but he has a secret. And Ranger suspects the workers are hiding something too. Between their cunning adversary and dissension among the workers, trust is at a premium.

Something has come to this remote, barren world for a reason. It's determined. Deadly. Calculating.

About the Author

JD Williams started writing fiction in first grade, and he hasn’t stopped. He enjoys exploring characters as much as locales. Adhering to the idea that perspective is everything, he likes to write about protagonists who have things to discover about themselves and the world they live in. He prefers writing science fiction and fantasy, but makes no promises not to try something new anytime in the future. (Uh oh, a double negative...)

JD is also an artist and sometimes draws his characters and other elements to help the writing process.

When not writing… well, apparently JD does a lot of writing, of one kind or another. He has also resisted the siren call of video games (almost) successfully for 25 years (he’s a Halo fan who knows what Marathon was), but his will power is weakening. And he owns every Spider-Man comic from 1966 on. (Yes, even the platinum edition of McFarlane’s Spider-Man #1.)

JD is married, has an adult son and a daughter in college. He is a dog lover, so naturally they have 4-6 cats, depending on how many of the neighborhood strays you count as theirs.

Relentless 3.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.
SpaceMarine_367 More than 1 year ago
Relentless is a snapshot of life in the Imperial Navy. The main character, Captain Becket, is transferred to the Relentless after the passing of its previous captain, much to the displeasure of the acting-captain Ward. Ward then plans a coup against Becket, which backfires and ultimately allows Becket back onto the Relentless. After much effort and intrigue, Becket reclaims his command in the midst of a dark eldar attack, against which he rallies the crew and repulses, at great cost. This book is great for anyone looking to take a break from reading about the Imperial Guard or Space Marines, and provides a [pretty] good look at how life is in the Imperial Navy.

¿Relentless¿ is Richard Williams¿ first full novel outing for the Black Library and he does a rather respectable job. There was good characterization and action throughout the novel, and it was fashioned far better than I would have expected in an author¿s first work. What I especially liked about this novel was that it took a new direction that I have not seen in other 40K novels, there was a definite sense of Hornblower and his seafaring nautical ilk here, which was enjoyable and comes as a fresh breeze to this reader. There were little annoyances that were irksome, like the overuse of the phrase ¿had had¿ which drives me up the wall but that is more a personal foible than Mr. Williams¿. The Black Library appears to have a decent novelist here and I hope to pick up Mr. Williams¿ next tale soon.

I got the book based off the other reviews talking about imperial navy references. Ignore them. Wrong book. This book isn't bad, but it is pretty derivative. The description is accurate, so if you find it interesting this may be fine for you

"Relentless" by Richard Williams is one of my highlights from the "Warhammer" Universe. Tightly scripted narrative is "relentless" in the pursuit of adventure! Revenge, twas said's, "a dish best served cold", but "Relentless" is hot! I hope Williams has further installments in the life and times of the Imperial Navy!
