The long struggle is over at last. The demon dactyl is no more, its dark sorceries shattered by the gemstone magic wielded by the woman known as Pony. But victory did not come easily. Many lives were lost, including Pony’s lover, the elf-trained ranger Elbryan Wynden. Despite the dactyl’s demise, the kingdom still seethes in the same cauldron of plots and machinations. But when a deadly sickness suddenly appears among the people of Corona, Pony must undertake a pilgrimage that will test her powers–and her faith–as never before. Watching her every step of the way is the man she hates above all else: Marcalo De’Unnero, the villain responsible for Elbryan’s death . . . who would desire nothing more than to lead Pony down that same treacherous path to destruction.

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!
