“Space opera the way it ought to be [...] Bujold and Weber, bend the knee; interstellar adventure has a new king, and his name is Walter Jon Williams.” -- George R.R. Martin

At last, the climactic final episode of the Dread Empire’s Fall trilogy--what started with The Praxis and The Sundering comes to the brilliant conclusion in Walter Jon William's epic space adventure.

Working on opposite sides of the galaxy--one in deep space, the other undercover on an occupied planet--and haunted by personal ghosts, Captain Gareth Martinez and Lieutenant Lady Caroline Sula fight to save the Empire from the vicious, alien Naxid. In a desperate, audacious bid to stop the Naxid fleet, Martinez makes a move that could win the war...and lose his career. Meanwhile, Sula’s guerilla tactics may not be enough to stop the Naxid, until she tries one deadly, final gambit.

And make sure to see what happens after, in the first new Praxis novel in ten years, The Accidental War, available Fall 2018!

National bestselling science fiction master William C. Dietz continues his Legion of the Damned series as the balance of power on a remote planet may decide the fate of the battered Confederacy...

Second Lieutenant Antonio Santana had earned respect and honor battling the Thrakies—until he refused an order to fire on unarmed civilians. Now he’s been busted down a rank and posted to the isolated planet of LaNor.

Since its recent discovery, LaNor has attracted the attention of every political and economic power of every species in the still-precarious Confederacy of Sentient Beings—all with an eye to exploiting both its location and its natural resources. As for the native LaNorians, little concern is paid to them except as a steady supply of cheap labor.

But the LaNorians have had enough of this unwelcome colonization—and are ready to strike back at those who have corrupted their homeworld. Led by their Empress, they launch an all-out rebellion in against the invaders. Surrounded by a fanatical horde, all the competing interests are forced to band together for survival in an unlikely alliance held together both by the courage of Santana and the diplomatic prowess of his sometime lover Christine Vanderveen.

But even as the Legion and its newfound allies struggles to fend off wave after bloody wave of furious attacks, Santana slowly begins to suspect that they all may be pawns in a much greater and deadlier campaign. That someone or something else is behind the uprising. And that their true objective is to spread the chaos of war far beyond LaNor...
