Overview

A plague convulses Damusiku, a small colonial world in the Frontier, and Kodomir, the closest world, responds to its cry for help. Only a small handful of survivors remain on Damusiku and, as the Kodomiri medical team, guarded by the Wild Geese, races to find a vaccine and a cure, it becomes clear that there is something very unnatural about the plague called Black Fire. Even as tragedy strikes Alisti Mahmud al-Kheyntamenti, the Wild Geese’s commanding officer, they learn Black Fire is a terrorist weapon of the Church of First Destiny and it is already unleashed, sweeping across the Settled Worlds. Separated from their friends and families, all targets of Black Fire, the Wild Geese track the terrorists to New Sudan, a world known to Gwielgi and Kheyntamenti as that is where, decades before, they met. Disguised as a rogue mercenary unit, the Wild Geese find the armed forces of New Sudan and its own legendary warriors, the Lords of Destiny, protect the Church of First Destiny. Gwielgi encounters ghosts of past decisions made on New Sudan coming back to haunt him in the present while Kheyntamenti struggles with grief and a terrible level of responsibility as he faces the prospect of sacrificing the Wild Geese to prevent another terrorist attack. This is a conflict involving more than Kodomir and its Wild Geese and rivals become allies against the common danger. But the Geese cannot wait to strike, for the next terrorist attack is readying and it will be worse than Black Fire. Mercenary’s Destiny, the fifth Wild Geese novel by Steven M. Silver, finds the former mercenaries known as the Wild Geese, encountering love and loss, implacable righteousness and terrorism in God’s name, and the true meaning of what it is to be a warrior. Mercenary’s Destiny makes use of Silver’s background in the military, history, and psychology, to develop worlds of the future grounded in human experience.
