When they lose contact with a system at the edge of the Empire, they quickly realise nothing will ever be the same again.
Nelsen Rybek, a Captain of Imperial Naval Intelligence, finds himself an unwitting companion to Andreya, a woman with no idea who she is, both caught up in the pivotal moment which threatens to push this mighty Empire into a war it cannot possibly hope to win.
Together with their formidable stealth ship, the Valkyr Sneak Thief, somehow they have to unravel the mystery of this implacable foe, whose numbers defy all odds, and whose actions defy all logic. There are no threats, no parley, do demands, just devastation and ruin.
As the Empire strives to contain the escalating destruction, they find every single technological advancement they can bring to bear against this new enemy is rendered futile, and virtually worthless as the enemy seize control of their fleets, and slaughter their crews without pause.
Insurmountable Odds is part one of the trilogy, When Stars Fall - an epic saga set in the Dominium computer game universe - and is the culmination of a 20,000 year long backstory that will change the nature and shape of the Dominium Globular Cluster forever.
They have no idea what's coming...
