The national bestselling author of The Vâ€™Dan
returns to her gripping military sci-fi series set in the
same world as Theirs Not to Reason Why.
The First Salik War is underway, and the Alliance is
losingâ€”their newest allies must find a way to win, or
everyone will be slaughtered.
Though committed to helping their Vâ€™Dan cousins, the Terrans
resent how their allies treat them. The Vâ€™Dan in turn feel
the Terrans are too unseasoned to act independently. And the
other nations fear that ending the Salik War means starting
a Human Civil War.
Even as Imperial Prince Liâ€™eth and Ambassador Jackie
MacKenzie struggle to get their peoples to cooperate, they
still face an ethical dilemma: How do you stop a ruthless,
advanced nation from attacking again and again without
slaughtering them in turn?
