Summary
From the national bestselling author of Battle Hymn comes the conclusion to the electrifying sci-fi thriller duology begun with At Empire’s Edge... On the surface, the Uman Empire seems as glorious as ever, with its citizens reveling in their proud civilization, the Legions defending its borders, and the Emperor ruling benevolently over all. Yet it is a facade. In truth, the alien Vord are pushing deeper into Uman space even as the noble families maneuver for power within a waning Empire. But for Xeno Corps Centurion Jak Cato, all that matters is that he’s still alive. After a disastrous mission that almost cost him everything, he’s returning to the Imperial capital of Corin with his beloved Alamy for some well-deserved down time—which soon becomes no time. For as Cato watches a grand procession, he catches a glimpse of his mighty Emperor—and in one horrifying instant, Cato’s enhanced senses recognize that while the Emperor looks the same, it is not him. It is Fiss Verafti, the murderous Sagathi shape-changer Cato had just hunted down. The creature he thought was dead! As the Empire strains under attacks from within and without, Cato doggedly investigates the mystery of how Verafti made his way from the grave to the throne and who is behind the astounding plot. And when he does discover the truth, it will change Cato—and the entire galaxy—forever... “When it comes to military science fiction, William Dietz can run with the best.”—Steve Perry, author of the Matador series “Adrenaline-fueled, Clancy-esque adventure.”—Publishers Weekly
Summary
Looking at the Emperor, Jack Cato realizes that a Sagathi, a powerful shape-shifter who had supposedly been eliminated, is still alive and on the run, and the fate of the Uman Empire, and Jack's reputation, are at stake
