Overview

The first volume of an epic new science fiction trilogy. Constantine Blas, Captain of a Federation Battlecruiser, is imprisoned when the sole surviving allied fleet is defeated by the religious fanatics of Axia. But Blas is not without allies. During the journey to the prison planet Nabucco I, a small group of rebels helps him to escape. Together with two other Federation leaders, they begin to plan the fightback.

Their rebellion begins to win victories, and more and more recruits clamor to join the fight for freedom. Even the mysterious and powerful Orphexians, women with the power of mind control, come to their aid. One of them is the beautiful and enigmatic Evelyn. A girl whose mind has the power to enrapture any man’s heart. Or to destroy it.

Constantine forms a strong bond with Evelyn and together they become a vital part of the spearhead of the new rebellion. Sword of Axia is a lavish tale of battle and catastrophe where freedom is the prize. A story of heroes and cowards, of beautiful women and the men who would covet them. A story of treachery, betrayal, ambition and power with fleets of ships that clash in the blackness of space. It is a saga of the politics that have built and destroyed empires since the very dawn of man. Yet ultimately it is a story as old as life itself. A story of a man and a woman who loves him.

The dialog is clumsy and repititious. The editing is fair but errors are glaring. Motivations of characters are unrealistic at best. This book had potential but needs a lot of work.
