What to expect

Artefact is book one of The Lazarus War, an explosive new space adventure series from one of the brightest new stars in science fiction – perfect for fans of The Edge of Tomorrow, Alien and James S. A. Corey’s Expanse series.

Jack Campbell, author of the Lost Fleet novels calls it ‘a gripping read that moves at warp speed’.

Mankind has spread to the stars, only to become locked in warfare with an insidious alien race. All that stands against the alien menace are the soldiers of the Simulant Operation Programme, an elite military team remotely operating avatars in the most dangerous theatres of war.
Captain Conrad Harris has died hundreds of times – running suicide missions in simulant bodies. Known as Lazarus, he is a man addicted to death. So when a secret research station deep in alien territory suddenly goes dark, there is no other man who could possibly lead a rescue mission.
But Harris hasn’t been trained for what he’s about to find. And this time, he may not be coming back . . .

Artefact is an action-drenched tale of elite space marines, deep space exploration and galactic empires. Discover The Lazarus War – the thrilling new space opera series from one of the most exciting new voices in science fiction.

‘An adrenaline shot of rip-roaring military SF packed with cinematic action sequences and tightly drawn characters’ Stephen Deas, author of Elite: Wanted, Empires: Infiltration and Extraction

Critics Review

  • Artefact is a gripping read that moves at warp speed

    Jack Campbell, author of THE LOST FLEET novels
  • Gripping, gritty and unsentimental – Sawyer shows us how perilous future war can be

    Michael Cobley, author of the Humanity's Fire series
  • The Lazarus War: Artefact is an outstanding novel . . . fresh and exciting and gripping . . . I eagerly look forward to the next installment. I think I’d follow Conrad “Lazarus” Harris anywhere

  • An entertaining slice of retro sci-fi adventure

  • A hostile race of alien biomechs somewhat in the mould of H R Giger aliens . . . terrorism, subterfuge and traitors . . . starships sporting particle beam weapons, railguns the size of skyscrapers, laser batteries, missiles… And then there are the uber-human super-soldiers clad in powered armour and wielding plasma weapons… Is that enough for you? . . . This, dear readers, is the good stuff. Recommended

    Neal Asher, author of the Agent Cormac novels
  • A ripping yarn . . . a wholly unique adventure
