Overview

#4 in former U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Tom Kratman’s popular and relentlessly hard-hitting Carrera’s Legion military science fiction series. With male soldiers lured away, the planet Terra Nova raises a tough and gritty home-guard of women warriors to repel an invasion.

The ruthless freedom fighter and liberator of Terra Nova, Patrick Carrera, believed he could rest with a local victory. But now Earth’s religious totalitarians intend to hold Carrera’s world as a nuclear hostage. It’s time to take the nuclear war to Earth. But those who remain must endure the brunt of Earth’s revenge attack and find a way to stand and defend. They are the old, the sick and the very young–all led by a battle-tested cadre of warrior women determined to save their planet from tyranny yet again.

An amazing new chapter in former U.S. Army lieutenant-colonel Tom Kratman’s popular and relentlessly hard hitting Carrera series, a military science fiction masterpiece in the making.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The powerful Tauran Union controls the Transitway between Terra Nova and Earth, while above the independent planet of Balboa, the United Earth Peace Fleet, armed with nuclear weapons, keeps watch. Massively outnumbered by the occupying Tauran forces, the Balboans enlist everyone to fight for freedom—and their strongest and fiercest force is a unit of women soldiers, the Amazon Regiment. Through the voice of one young soldier, who has left her child in the care of an older woman to take up arms, Kratman (A Desert Called Peace; Carnifex; The Lotus Eaters) continues his tales of interplanetary warfare with an excruciatingly visceral story of bravery and sacrifice. VERDICT Series followers and fans of the military sf of John Ringo and David Weber should enjoy this sf action adventure.
