Conquered by the Jao twenty years ago, the Earth is shackled under alien tyranny - and threatened by the even more dangerous Ekhat, who are sending a genocidal extermination fleet to the solar system. Humanity's only chance rests with an unusual pair of allies: a young Jao prince, newly arrived to Terra to assume his duties, and a young human woman brought up amongst the Jao occupiers. But they are under pressure from all sides - a cruel Jao viceroy on one side, determined to drown all opposition in blood; a reckless human resistance on the other, perfectly prepared to shed it. Added to the mix is the fact that only by adopting some portions of human technology and using human sepoy troops can the haughty Jao hope to defeat the oncoming Ekhat attack - and then only by fighting the battle within the sun itself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[1632 is a] rich complex alternate history with great characters and vivid action. A great read and an excellent book."
"[Wentworth writes] old fashioned heroic adventure, mixing sf and fantasy with a reckless abandon that makes it fun."
"[1632 is] gripping and expertly detailed . . . battle scenes depicted with power . . . distinguishes Flint as an SF author of particular note, one who can entertain and edify in equal, and major, measure."
"K. D. Wentworth is an uncommonly good writer. If you value a striking tale very well told, you need look no further."
