The Forbidden Army
by Henrik Rohdin
For fifty years the Human Alliance and the Krokator Star Empire have been locked in a cold war, neither side willing to return to the open conflict that raged for centuries. Though uneasy, the peace has been amicably maintained–until terrorist attacks against both powers, leaving the Alliance’s capital shattered and the Emperor dead, threaten to reignite hostilities.
From the Alliance, the task of hunting down the perpetrators falls to intelligence officer Major John Gresham, whose background offers not only insight into galactic terror cells but also anonymous access to the labyrinthine defense establishment. The Empire sends Akgu Zurra, unquestioningly loyal and determined to hunt down those who murdered his sovereign. Their investigations lead in the same direction, forcing the two into unwelcome cooperation as they try to disrupt the network of their common enemy.
