"Never again attempt to develop this kind of technology."

It is with these words that an unknown alien attacker destroys the Earth cities of Tehran, Sydney and Beijing. Fifty million people die... and nothing is ever the same again.

Some call them Demons, some call them Aliens, but to Chinese Naval Captain Melissa Liao they are the enemy. She is given command of one of three great warships built to fight the "demons", the TFR Beijing.

Her task is simple. Find who attacked Earth and why... then stop them.

My name is Mike "Magnet" Williams. I'm a lot of things: fighter pilot. Ugly bastard. Lord of all I survey.

I fly the F-88 Wasp, although recently I've been doing a stint as a gunner in the Broadsword gunship Piggyback. I was back on Earth on an important mission after a long time in space.

Real important.

But now Fleet Command have another special mission for me. Apparently I'm a glutton for punishment. See, there's a Toralii freighter, somewhere deep in space, and it's vulnerable. Someone got the bright idea to steal it. Guess all their best people were unavailable, since they picked me and the crew of the Piggyback.

Since, you know, we did so well at the last mission.

We're going way out of my comfort zone for this one. I'm happiest when I'm in a cockpit, but this is something else. Something important.

If we succeed, we're doing to be doing something special, living out on the edge, hitting the Toralii where it hurts. We're taking the fight to them, and we're taking something they use to fight.

If we fail, nobody will ever find our bodies.

17,200-word story in the Lacuna universe, set after the events of Magnet and Magnet: Special Mission but suitable for reading as a stand-alone story.
