Publisher's Summary

In this thrilling new installment in the Far Stars saga, a reluctant hero with a bloody past must reunite with an old love to battle an evil emperor willing to destroy all their worlds if he cannot control them.

When the Far Stars came under imperial attack, Astra Lucerne - the daughter and successor of the Far Stars’ greatest conqueror - Marshal Augustin Lucerne - rallied her father’s confederation forces to defend their worlds. They were joined in the fight by former imperial general Arkarin Blackhawk, a warrior whose skills and brutality made him infamous, and who has, for two decades, sought the redemption he knows is unreachable. 

Now, with the imperial foothold in the sector eliminated, the Far Stars is free and almost united. While Astra’s forces continue to depose local tyrants and warlords, Ark and his crew have slipped back into the shadows. Though his heart belongs to Astra, Ark cannot get too close. His imperial conditioning remains under control, but it is still volatile, and the temptation of power threatens to unleash the dark compulsions that made him the most merciless of the emperor’s servants. He cannot risk allowing Astra to see the darkness inside him.

But while the battle has been won, the war may not be over. A petty smuggler makes a discovery that can enable the emperor to strike back and crush the resistance - unless Ark and Astra join forces again to stop him.

A Thrilling Story!!!

The only thing I did NOT like about this book was a lesbian romantic dalliance at the beginning of the third chapter. When I got the Audible version, I simply skipped over that part. The rest of the book is PURE GOLD! Breathtaking action, edge of your seat conflict and suspense are Jay Allan’s trademark, and Jeffrey Kafer does it all justice with his impeccable narration. As for the characters, I especially liked the confrontation between Blackhawk and the General whom the Emperor sent to find him! And there’s another interesting character taken aboard the Wolf’s Claw, who is not quite a prisoner, yet not quite a guest! You’ve got to read the book to find out who and what he is!

I don’t think you’ll be disappointed by anything Jay Allan writes!
