Overview

WHAT DO YOU OWE THE FUTURE, AND WHAT DO YOU OWE THE PAST?

With the hated totalitarian System on the verge of collapse and the dreaded alien Omnis observing an unexpected truce, veteran soldier of the Legion Thinker has finally found happiness with his wife Priestess in a cozy home raising his children and teaching new Legion recruits. It is a dream he never thought possible, a haven of peace and comfort. It is also short-lived, as a savage massacre of Outworlder settlers on the Outvac planet Fortuna leads the Confederation of Free Worlds to all out war with the Gassies world Asumara. Only not everything is as it appears, and soon the Legion finds itself fighting for the survival of its civilization against a shadowy enemy willing to do the unthinkable to destroy ConFree.

Return to the legion for this final episode in the heart-pounding military adventures of the Soldiers of the Legion Series--where virtue is worth dying for and honor is all that remains when the smoke clears.

Editorial Reviews

Laurel Johnson
“I’m a little sad to see this excellent sci fi series end...With skill and compassion, the author brought these characters to life for me. I’ll miss these courageous Legion immortals, forever young and strong as they seek truth and justice throughout the known universe.”

    A good read to get you through until a great read becomes available.

    I enjoyed the book for the most part. I've been reading the series through my nook and so it's been very convenient to down load it. All in all, it's not a bad book.

    Good book but with an annoying quirk

    I'm still reading this book, the sixth in a series of Space Opera SCI-FI warfare at it's best. This is wrapping up several of the plot line issues. One thing I would really like fixed it that most new paragraphs/segements of the book start with the same wording. The wording is: Three days later, a courier delivered the urn containing my mother's ashes. I placed it on the coffee table. She' like coffee, and we'd spent a lot of time sitting there with our feet propped up, talking---mugs of fragrant brew in hand. I really don't even see where in the book this fits in. It takes up a large portion of the word count. the story itself is great but I only gave it 3 stars because of this terrible editing error.
