It is a time of trials for the Marik-Stewart Commonwealth. Besieged by enemies on all sides, their once-mighty forces are struggling to survive—as is their leader…
Anson Marik is at his wit’s end. His Lyran enemies—aided by the mercenary warriors of Clan Wolf—are pressing on the borders of the Commonwealth. His chief tactician has resigned in the midst of the chaos. And his abilities as a leader are failing him. He’s unable to summon up his legendary rage to focus his mind, and the loss couldn’t have happened at a worse time.
For his enemies are already on the move, taking the Commonwealth planet by planet, forcing Marik to pull his forces back in a bravely-fought running retreat. And if Marik cannot gather his strength to stop the invasion, his people will be doomed…
