It is AD 2565. When 17-year-old Marine cadet Arun McEwan forges an unlikely friendship with an alien scribe, he crashes into a world of treachery and conspiracy. How can he possibly survive three more years until graduation when every day brings a new deadly threat? But survive he must because his new alien allies show him glimpses of his destiny - a vision of a better future that only he can forge. A dream called the Human Legion.
AD 2568. As Major Arun McEwan readies the newly formed Human Legion to retake his home planet of Tranquility, loyalties are wafer thin, and morale is low. Even his closest friends harbor poisonous secrets. And he needs everyone beside him, because the legion must strike boldly and win allies rapidly if it is to defeat the overwhelming numbers of an enemy led by Arun's old nemesis. What the legion discovers will scar Arun's heart and change the meaning of the word human forever.
2566 AD. Unlike the other Marines on board the troop ship Beowulf, when 18-year-old Arun McEwan is woken from cryo to board an enemy ship, he already knows that he will survive: his destiny to lead the Human Legion has been foretold. But there are other factions who will stop at nothing to bring about their rival dreams for humanity's future. Isolated on a ship rocked by mutiny, betrayal, and murder, Arun must find new allies amongst the most detested of the Navy crew: the freaks.
