The last message from Central Command was more a plea than an order, and run is exactly what the last remnants of humanity did to escape the Death as Earth was destroyed.
Among the survivors is James Ursidae, a fearsome warrior whose despair now outweighs his expectations for the future. After months of drifting through intergalactic space, Ursidae and what humanity remains have found a spark of hope on the planet Lintalla and in the company of its native Illani.
Unfortunately, starting anew comes at a price, and even in a strange system, violence and war are a constant. A new enemy, the Tarin’Tal, holds the system’s inhabitants in a vicelike grip that continues to tighten.
Can Ursidae and the Earthlings burn bright yet again and save their new world from the destruction they’d hoped to leave behind?
