The galaxy flees in vain before the vengeance of the Ynos. Four thousand years ago, their peaceful cousins were viciously hunted down and exterminated in a glut of greed. Now they have returned, seemingly undefeatable and hell-bent on destroying everyone in their path. The reluctant Emperor finds himself the military leader of not one, but two distinct species, at war with each other. Persistent and conflicting memories from both groups vie for his brain’s attention. But it’s the present he must force himself to focus on, even though unremitting discoveries of atrocities committed on his behalf also threaten his mental stability. The core group of supporters who escaped with him from the penal colony, with a few new additions, is fragmenting quickly. Intrigues, betrayal, murder, and insanity stalk the Imperium, the religious Houses, and the new Restoration. It’s anyone’s guess what happens next. Dark Throne, the third book in the Dark Pilgrim series, is excellent. I highly recommend this extraordinary series to anyone who enjoys science fiction or political intrigue.
