A mysterious race from an alternate universe has allied itself with the Jotunn, and the alliance is set on destroying the Aesir and bringing about Ragnarok. With an ability to jump between universes and unstoppable time-based weapons, the Efreet seem invincible. The Vella Gulf is the only ship to survive its first meeting with the Efreet...but only through a fluke of luck.

Worse, Lieutenant Commander Shawn 'Calvin' Hobbs has just found out the Efreeti home world is the same planet in their universe as Terra is in ours. If true, the Efreet could cross into our universe at any moment and annihilate the Earth without any warning. Terra lies defenseless!                                                                                        

Calvin and the crew of the Vella Gulf have a surprise for the Efreet, though; they have returned to Terra with the ability to cross between the universes like their enemy. Armed with personal transporters and jump modules for their ships, they're now able to take the fight to the Efreet. But will they be in time to prevent Terra's annihilation?  

As the Efreet continue their inexorable onslaught on all fronts, Calvin only knows one thing. The answers to all of their questions lie beyond the shroud of the universe.

Editorial Reviews

"Chris Kennedy's "Beyond the Shroud of the Universe" is, above and beyond anything else, an unabashed, no-holds-barred roller coaster of space opera action. If you like your Star-Wars-meets-John-Ringo thrills direct, undiluted, and not overly convoluted or complicated, this may well be the book for you. Seat belts required." - Charles E. Gannon, Author of the Award-Winning "Fire with Fire" series"The action starts from the first few pages and doesn't stop until the end. There were a few twists to the plot that definitely weren't expected, proving the old saying "the enemy of my enemy could be my friend." Loved this, the second book in the series and am looking forwards to the third installment!" - Marcus Murphy
