The world has fallen to ash. Governments have collapsed, police and armies no longer exist and the people of the world have been left behind to fend for themselves in the midst of escalating violence and nuclear fallout. One community of survivors find each other, come together, and try to rebuild, to start over.

Great potential to the book and to the series, think the narration needs some help. Story is a bit short to use a credit on, but if it hits a sale it would be worth getting.

A strike group of the dozen most advanced ships in the Alliance is assembled and sent to a summit of the remaining great powers of Orion. It is a measure of the reputation and military prowess of humanity that they are to be allowed to participate in joint exercises with the Naru Navy, a combined military force made up of ships from the five alien empires. At the same time a diplomatic mission lands on the surface of the planet to meet with the leaders in the Helion Council.

The legions of Rome were in full withdraw, fighting as they went, surrounded by enemies in a multi-front war that was proving too costly for the empire to sustain. Briton, the last land conquered, became the first land abandoned, and would be left to fend for itself against the ever-encroaching barbarian hoards of Picti, Saecsons, and Hybernians - all eager to fill the vacuum that Rome left behind.
