The Annexation War rages across hundreds of Triaxian systems. Naero Amashin Maeris serves as the valiant, headstrong young fleet captain of Strike Fleet Six, spearheading the Alliance advance. They battle against Triaxian zealots, Hevangian assassins, and every deadly trick, tactic, and surprise their ruthless enemies can hurl at them.
Hundreds of fleets clash to decide the fate of trillions enslaved to corrupt tyrants–tyrants devoid of all honor. Terrible losses mount on both sides. The stress of the brutal, interstellar naval war tears at everyone. Triax unleashes horrific genocide devices to scorch their worlds as they retreat. Naero's crews and their brave Spacer Marines struggle to defeat the implacable foe, and save what lives they can.
Yet one thing remains certain. No matter who falls. No matter who dies.
