Publisher's Summary

Secrets both ancient and new.
Powers great and greater -
with Terra caught in the middle.

Humanity's first colony is a project neither the Duchy of Terra nor the A!Tol Imperium can allow to fail. The planet Hope in the Alpha Centauri system has been lavished with resources and attention - but when an unknown alien force attacks the system, all of that is in danger.

An ancient alien artifact is the apparent target of the attack, an artifact older than known galactic civilization. Suddenly, the backwater colony of a second-rate power is the gathering point for a confrontation of the galaxy's greatest powers.

Duchess Annette Bond might be pregnant. She might be five light years away. She might have another galactic power on her doorstep demanding she surrender their rebels who've settled on Earth.

But she speaks for both Terra and the Imperium - and the galaxy will listen.

EXCELLENT.

Very good storyline. Annette Bond, Duchess of Terra saved her world again!. Very exciting adventure. I hope there will be more book s to come in this series. Hillary Huber performed well and the voices were quite distinct . Worth a credit.

What great entertainment !!

I have read almost all of this author’s works, the exception being the ONSET series (just not my type of story line). That said, I have found them all to be what I seek - entertainment for my mind and a way to relax. Thanks Mr. Stewart - carry on!

Yada yada

I'm writing this @ chapter 40...I kept zoning out & replaying. I enjoyed the first two but most of this book is a space battle. A waste of time & money. BORING!

Great continuation of a fantastic series

Glynn Stewart delivers another fast paced, yet well-balanced tale in this series. His expertly crafted universe is a joy to live in and experience. I especially enjoyed the onion-like layers that were woven into the political landscape of the galaxy in this book. They're touched on in previous books, but the core-powers finally get to flex their muscles. The battle scenes, both space-born and planet-based, were masterfully done.

Believable, yet not overly technical, this series really draws you in and makes you care about the main cast and the fate of the universe the author provides to them.

Last thing, Hillary Huber OWNS this series. She's the perfect fit for tone of the books and the Dutchess in particular. 5-Stars all around!
