Overview

Mercenary’s Redemption, the seventh Wild Geese novel by Steven M. Silver, takes place a year after the annihilation of the Sixth Guards Regiment of the Free Union by a battalion of the Kodomir Militia – the Wild Geese. During that year, the Portaka Desert was the home of Gwielgi, former soldier of the Kodomir Militia, where he lived alone after the death of his wife. Slowly, he is brought out of that bleak land by Victoria Sparrow, at first an academic colleague. Believing that his wife’s death was some kind of punishment for his sins, he immerses himself in being a teacher and turns his back on being a warrior. As Gwielgi tries to find his way, gathering storms threaten the stability of the Free Union. President Peter Mavis Carmichael, after stopping one conspirator, falls at the hands of another, Thomas Balsten, a man of utter ruthlessness who intends to plunge the Union into chaos and conquer it one piece at a time. He selects Kodomir as a stepping-stone from which to attack the Union and seizes it with Stalin-like brutality. Slowly the question rises: is Carmichael really dead and, if he is not, where is he? Balsten desperately needs Carmichael dead, for it will take someone as cunning and ruthless as Carmichael to stop him. Only a handful of people know that Carmichael, narrowly avoiding Balsten’s assassins, is hiding in Kodomir’s Portaka Desert, protected by two Wild Geese. The race between Balsten’s hunt and Carmichael’s maneuvers has the potential to turn Kodomir into ash.

Gwielgi watches these events take place as he tries to rebuild his life. With the Militia’s weapons controlled by Balsten, there seems to be no way to respond to his killing of hostages. But there is more than one cunning and ruthless person on Kodomir. Gwielgi and Charles Tsunasdi find a desperate way to strike back, though it will mean going after Balsten himself and, for Gwielgi, confronting his demons. It may also mean sacrificing the Wild Geese to save Kodomir. Steven M. Silver, drawing again on his experience as an historian and combat veteran, presents a story that sweeps across worlds but ultimately is about the decisions individual men and women make and the risks they run.
