WE HAVE A JOB FOR YOU ... Just a routine day in lunar orbit. That's all Lieutenant Commander Colin Maclntyre, USN, expected. Only a simple training mission to test a new survey instrument intended for the first manned American-Russian interstellar flight. What he got was just a bit different. First, there was the fact that Earth didn't actually have a Moon. Then there was the three thousand-kilometer diameter alien starship pretending it was the Moon. And the millennia-old cybernetic intelligence that shanghaied him to serve as its crew. Colin might have been forgiven for thinking that those were enough surprises for any one man, but there were a few other small problems. Like the deadly mutiny which had been raging longer than the human race had existed on Earth ... and still wasn't over. Or like the millions of other starships, crewed by genocidal aliens dedicated to the extermination of all possible competing life forms, which just happened to be headed straight towards Earth. Or like the interstellar empire whose aid offered humanity's only hope for survival... except for the minor fact that its last emperor and all of his subjects had died forty-five thousand years ago. Add in the occasional homicidal terrorist, religious fanatics convinced that the only good Maclntyre was a dead Maclntyre, a bic-weapon capable of killing every living thing on any planet, a super-bomb which could take out whole worlds, a starship drive which could destroy complete solar systems, and the need to organize the entire planet Earth¾ and all of its warring, mutually murderous factions¾for a probably hopeless last-ditch defense, and Colin was convinced that things were just about as bad as they could possibly get. Until he found out whose job it had just become to fix all those problems, of course.... At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Fifty years have passed since the Dark Lord was beaten, and little of what once was the Empire of Light remains. Humanity has risen high to take the reins of power in the vacuum left once the Imperial Grand Council, and is relentless in its pursuit to assert human kind as the new dominant force with all who oppose them running in fear. And tops in their list of enemies is the Harbinger himself; Aen. Aen withdrew completely from all life, and though he is mightily hunted, he has hidden in a place so isolated he cannot be found. Here, he obsesses over the promise he made to Iana. His soul broken from his losses, he sees the truth in all that has happened, and all that is beginning to transpire. He has awakened from his slumber and he is angry. A stranger appears, and her very presence threatens to unwind eons of carefully crafted plans. Her mission: seek out Aen, push him to complete this promise to Iana. But to do that, they will uncover secrets old enough to be forgotten by history, and meet races so ancient, they had become myths.
