Synopses & Reviews
The new novel of The Legion of the Damned...from the bestselling author of By Blood Alone and By Force of Arms. "When it comes to military science fiction, William Dietz can run with the best, " says Steve Perry. And he proves it once again in his newest novel about the foreign legion of the far future--and the battles no one else can fight but General Bill Booly. Now, in the wake of a great universal war, he's found himself struggling to balance his military, political, and humane obligations. But neither Booly nor his men realize on the remote world of LaNor, another revolution is brewing. There, a career Legionnaire with a reputation for bucking authority and an inexperienced, overly-ambitious diplomat will become key to defending the deadly LaNorian web of terrorism that threatens not only the Legionnaires, but the entire Confederacy. Praise for Dietz's Legion of the Damned novels:
"Dietz has created an intricate tapestry of local and star-faring culture with topnotch action sequences."—Publishers Weekly
You're only a hero until your next battle.
Legion General Bill Booly knows that peace is just a pause between wars. He's just crushed one uprising, and now a new rebellion is already brewing on a remote world light years away--spawning a web of terrorism that is close enough to catch the vulnerable Confederacy in its grasp.
