Publisher's summary

The clouds of war continue to build...and not everyone is blind.

Bjorn Tovesson III, the owner of Bjorn’s Berserkers, is a man tied to the past but who’s not afraid to innovate. Whether it is new tactics or new equipment, Bjorn is willing to try anything once, in an effort to grow his company into the status of the fabled Four Horsemen.

Looking to the future with his eyes open, though, he has seen a series of unfortunate occurrences running through the ranks of Earth’s mercenaries. Companies in financial troubles, some taking huge losses on contracts...and others not returning from their contracts at all.

His father always taught him to prepare, and Bjorn is working to diversify his operations, including moving the company to a planet with a sizable portion of aliens who are already members of the Galactic Union. Nothing bad could happen to them there, right?

But as the storm clouds continue to gather, his past is on a collision course with the present, as another of Earth’s mercenary companies is out to get him...and with the support of the Mercenary Guild, they have the forces to overwhelm him! Will Bjorn’s preparations keep the Berserkers safe, or will they become yet another unfortunate occurrence?
