Meanwhile, a Desotoan task force is poised to stage a military takeover of the Achaean System. The Assassins and their employers, Desotoan Foreign Intelligence, are on the move in a blatant grab for power and territory. But the aggressors have succeeded in one thing already. They have gotten the undivided attention of the entire Hawke Clan. Things are about to get very messy.

About the author

I want to write stories that are fun to read and fun to write. Science fiction and fantasy have always been favorites of mine. I grew up reading Robert Heinlein, Roger Zelazny, Keith Laumer, and J. R. R. Tolkien. I also found that sci-fi and fantasy frequently have a basis in real historical events. My reading branched out into theoretical physics, ancient history, biography, and military history. Of course, when I started writing my own material, I did what I could to combine all these elements. That's why you'll find history and science even in stories that are nominally fantasy. And it's why you'll find fantasy even in my historical fiction. That's not to mention the mysticism that I weave into my science fiction. I like to put all the things that interest me into the blender and just let 'er rip. I hope you have as much fun reading my stories as I have writing them!
