In eternity, there was no hurry. In the year A.D 3196 humankind is thriving and striving for the stars. Among them stand the Mortalis, flesh and blood beings who can live extensively by xulon, a life-preserving plant that gives health and vitality when ingested. Then there were the Ascended, immortal transcended beings that can reside in both the natural and supernatural elements. Follow Lieutenant Colonel Marion, a two-hundred and something (friendly warning: never ask her real age!) woman who is the third centennial officer and the commander of the famed Black Warrior Battalion, a small squadron elite skilled in every art of battle. And she runs a tight ship. "I want everything to run smoothly once we reach Midway Station. We don't have room for mistakes on our mission." She leads an expedition to colonize new planets. Along the way she stumbles into politically charged alien kingdoms, war, loss, and betrayal that questions the purpose of her military life time and again. Marion can live a long life, but that doesn't mean that she is immortal. "Oh, I remember everything... Every wound, every cut, every disappointment. I may heal physically, but emotionally the pain is still there." Years pass and the peace Marion worked so hard to achieve, personally and intergalactically, is under threat when Galactic war is declared. It is her sworn duty to take up arms with her comrades. So, her faith is put to the test once again. So is her control. "The enemy threatens to destroy our way of life. We cannot let this happen. Shortly we'll be boarding our transports and heading into battle. I will be there to lead you to victory. There will be no mercy because our enemies have shown no mercy!" Get to your posts! Battle Stations!

In El Salvador, a young American faces his troubled past—and a dangerous present Jude McManus has landed on his feet. Following time in the army, he scored work as an “executive protection specialist” in El Salvador, where he safeguards a hydrologist for good money and gets to surf during his downtime. But this slice of paradise comes with post-civil-war dangers, and distance won’t erase his cruel memories of Chicago. Ten years earlier, his cop father was outed as part of the Laugh Masters, a group of police officers investigated for robbing and brutally beating drug dealers. In the wake of the scandal, the family fell apart, and his father died under suspicious circumstances. When McManus gets a call from Bill Malvasio—one of his dad’s closest friends and an escaped member of the Laugh Masters, now living in El Salvador—the past comes knocking in a big way. Malvasio opens up about what really happened, and seeks help for another member of McManus’s father’s old crew. Is the disgraced ex-cop being straight with McManus? Hidden corruption abounds, and it will take all of McManus’s wits to come away with the truth—and his life—intact.
