Publisher's Summary

In the colonial cities and towns of Fatrasta, peace has never been easy. Immigrants fight amongst themselves or turn on the native population, while the governing power of the Kez Army steps in only to enforce the will of apathetic local governors assigned by a distant crown.

Young war hero Ben Styke commands a colonial garrison in a sleepy frontier suburb. When the governor's cruel brother stops for the night, rising continental tensions force Styke to protect the people of his town in a brutal escalation that threatens to destroy everything and everyone he has fought for.

Occurs 12 years before the events in Sins of Empire.

Not worth the credit , and it pains me to say it.<br />

I am a huge fan of this series and can not wait for the next full book... but I could barely get through this audio book because of the narration. The sad part is that this fatal flaw was completely avoidable because this is the same reader the author has had read all his short novellas and the feedback from listeners could not have been more straight forward and brutal that the reader was killing his story. I don't know if he didn't care to listen to the fan base of his new book series or if he had no choice. But this is the last chance I give to a book read by this person and I sure hope that doesn't keep me from buying the next audio book in this series... but I just can not take another book read by her even if it is a great book.
