Overview

This great set contains the first three books of the Merkiaari Wars Series plus an exclusive preview of Operation Breakout, the recently released fourth book of the series:

Hard Duty (Book1)
Our last encounter with an alien space fleet saw sixteen-point-two billion people killed when the Merkiaari's galactic empire declared war, and sparked an alien invasion of humanity's colony worlds. Thousands of ships, millions of our finest soldier and space marine assets, sacrificed themselves in battles that spanned decades in an effort to throw the aliens back.

Captain Jeff Colgan joined the navy looking for action and adventure among the stars, and found it in a life of space exploration and discovery. His passion for his mission is rivaled only by his sense of responsibility to the Alliance and his crew, but despite the danger of encountering a Merkiaari warship in unexplored space, his duty to investigate a transmission from an unknown source is clear. Will the Alliance make new friends or will he be responsible for another sixteen billion deaths?

What Price Honour (Book2)
Our last encounter with aliens saw sixteen-point-two billion people killed by a galactic empire war machine built by the Merkiaari, but with the use of nanotech and by the grace of God, the alien invasion was defeated. The result of that nanotech? Vipers, a regiment of super soldier s tasked with protecting the Alliance. It was a job they performed with distinction, a job they completed almost two centuries ago, a job that cost them their humanity.

Thurston wasn't the sort of place that Gunnery Sergeant Gina Fuentez had expected to find one of the fabled viper cyborgs, but that's what she finds when a mission to extract an operative from a terrorist camp leads to a firefight and two of her squad dead. Live a life of action and adventure the recruitment vid had proclaimed, join the space marines, see the galaxy, meet new and interesting people... and kill them, but that last part had been left out. Fifteen years on, battle hardened and much wiser, with friends dying around her and a world coming apart at the seams, she must decide if the Marine Corps is just a waypoint to where she really belongs.

Operation Oracle (Book3)
Shima is a Shan hero of great renown, but she cuts a tragic figure living in the ruins of Zuleika. Blinded at the closing stages of the cleansing of Child of Harmony, her days as a soldier and resistance fighter are over. She has survived many trials. First contact with Humans, the alien invasion of her planet, and almost being incinerated by the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons in atmosphere! Few people could boast such achievements, and she knows her father would have been proud of her, but pride is small  consolation when she has to live the rest of her life in darkness.

Meanwhile, deep under The Mountain on Snakeholme, vast computer networks are running simulations, but they're flawed and General Burgton's self-imposed mission to safeguard the Alliance is in jeopardy. Without reliable intelligence, he cannot protect the Alliance from itself, let alone the Merkiaari. The missions he authorises are blacker than black, so secret that only he and the agents performing them know of their existence, but every operation relies upon his seemingly miraculous fore-knowledge of events, and he's making mistakes.

Needing a solution, Burgton breaks the Alliance's artificial intelligence ban and spends trillions of credits on Project Oracle, but when the project fails and desperation sends him looking for an for an answer, he compounds his crime. If he can't build an A.I, he'll just have to steal one!
