A thrilling spin-off from Jack Campbellâ€™s The Lost Fleet
series, The Lost Stars: Tarnished Knight delivered
â€śexcellent tales of space battles and struggles against
tyrants and aliens.â€ť* Now the New York Times bestselling
author returns with the next chapter in the overthrow of the
Syndicate Worldsâ€™ oppression.
Following a successful coup, the leaders of the rebel Midway
Star System struggle to forge a government free enough to
please its citizens yet strong enough to secure power. But
in a world where former rulers have become new foes, an
alien threat to humanity may turn old adversaries into
General Artur Drakon knows three words describe someone who
confides in a Syndicate CEO: Stupid. Betrayed. Dead. Despite
his misgivings, he partnered with another former CEO to
overthrow Syndic forces. Now, with an enigma fleet menacing
their hard-earned independence, he can ill afford to trust
herâ€”or lose her support.
President Gwen Iceni believes Midway is humanityâ€™s defense
against the enigmas. Syndicate training taught her
self-preservation in a crisis, yet sheâ€™s determined to fight
for the star systemâ€™s fate-even if it means joining forces
with Drakonâ€”and an officer of the hated Alliance.
Their plan places the Midway flotilla at great risk in hopes
of greater reward: recruiting the personnel necessary to man
warships against the enigmas. But before facing the alien
advance, Drakon and Iceni must survive hidden dangers closer
to home: all-too-human threats that could jeopardize
Midwayâ€™s freedom-and their own lives.
