War was coming to Barnes World.
All because of one 18 year old girl … and a special secret she didn’t really understand
It was the greatest secret in the known universe. Folded space technology, the ability to travel between the stars in days or weeks. A secret that only the Guild possessed and through it controlled all interstellar travel. And through that power were very, very rich.
Now this mere Earther girl threatened all that.
For the Guild it was simple. They had dealt ruthlessly with the spies and scientists who threatened to uncover their secret. They would do the same again, but preferred ‘others’ do their dirty work. The Xarthans were the perfect weapon for this. Brutal, merciless killers who had no love for the Earthers having lost the last war twenty years before. Their thirst for revenge would be extremely ‘useful’ to destroy the Earther fleet, defeat the Colonial Marines and take the planet. When that was done, the Guild would come and restore order and ensure their secret was safe once more. It did not matter if everyone on the Earther colony was dead or an Xarthan slave.
A simple plan. A perfect plan.
But they did not consider who stood in their way, Colonel “Mad Max” Roberts and the 25th Brigade of the Colonial Marines.
And one girl.
