"When it comes to military science fiction, William Dietz can run with the best," says Steve Perry. And he proves it once again in his newest novel about the foreign legion of the far future--and the battles no one else can fight but General Bill Booly. Now, in the wake of a great universal war, he's found himself struggling to balance his military, political, and humane obligations. But neither Booly nor his men realize on the remote world of LaNor, another revolution is brewing. There, a career Legionnarie with a reputation for bucking authority and an inexperienced, overly-ambitious diplomat will become key to defending the deadly LaNorian web of terrorism that threatens not only the Legionnaires, but the entire Confederacy.

In the aftermath of an interstellar war, General Bill Booly and his team are unaware that a new revolution is brewing on the remote planet of LaNor, where a career Legionnaire with a talent for bucking authority and an ambitious but inexperienced diplomat must defend the world against a web of terrorism that threatens the entire Confederacy.

It's been six months since the Confederacy - and every one of its reluctant allies - united to face an invasion waged against all sentient creatures. Spearheading the battle was Legion General Bill Booly. But now, in the wake of the war, the general has found himself struggling to balance his military, political, and humane obligations ... and a daunting set of priorities.
First: accommodate the five billion Ramanthians, an insectoid race in need of a new planet. Second: work with Hudathans, new allies who fought on the Confederacy's side but who have not yet proven themselves to be completely trustworthy. Third: crush the last remnants of the mutinous Legionnaires who are still in possession of dangerous armaments.
And what Booly doesn't know is that light-years away, another rebellion is brewing on the remote world of LaNor. There, Lieutenant Antonio Santana, a career Legionnaire with a reputation for bucking authority, and an overly ambitious diplomat named Christine Vanderveen are key to the defense against a deadly LaNorian plan of siege: a far-reaching web of terrorism that threatens not only all other non-native races on the planet, but the vulnerable Confederacy as well.
