The adventure begun in Janissaries continues.
Kidnapped from Earth as they were about to die in battle, Rick Galloway and his band of mercenaries, like the other human slaves on the planet Tran, will not be missed. Subjects of the Shalnuksi slave masters, they are forced to harvest the priceless drug surinomaz. Now, even as slaves, Earth's transplanted warriors are locked in battle - against one another. But an epoch is ending. As the Demon Star sweeps toward its devastating apex, the slave masters flee the planet to await its annihilation in safety. Soon all life on the planet will cease, leaving it ripe for repopulation.

In sales and on the road a lot. Love SciFi, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, and the occasional Non-Fiction. Funny. Opinionated.
Now be cautioned. Be forewarned.
There is no book 4. This story ends in a cliffhanger. I Wikipedia'd it the day I finished and saw that there was no release date or status update since 2005. And here's the kicker, the author had a stroke the week before. I wish him the best in his recovery, hopefully he can crank out a finale for the series.
Had I known this was an incomplete story with no payoff, I can't say I would've invested in all three books. The third does improve over the second, although I really enjoyed the first because it remained easiest to follow.
It's a good series, not great. It is what it is.
