Though they have suffered a setback, the Malwa Empire of India led by a human-computer with the mind of a demon from the future regroups to plan a new attack on the Byzantine Empire in order to change the future so that the 'New Gods' will rule. General Belisarius leads the forces opposed to the Malwa scheme. He too has an entity from the future to guide him, but that being will not direct him so Belisarius must make life and death decisions he also has the armies of the known world behind him. --- The Malwa know that if they can eliminate Belisarius, the opposition will crumble as he has become the rallying cry as well as the prime strategist. Assassins try, but fail. Meanwhile Belisarus prepares for the final confrontation that will decide humanity¿s fate as slaves to the New Gods of Malwa or remaining the prime species on the planet. --- The climax to the six-book Belisarius legacy is a terific military alternate history thriller. As always in this series, the action is non-stopped yet faster than the speed of light. Fans of the previous novels will immensely enjoy the finale while pondering what if historical questions newcomers should start at the beginning to taste the full flavor of this epic saga. Accolades will go out to Eric Flint and David Drake for this excellent science fiction rendition of the renowned sixth-century General Belisarius, who comes off the history pages during the reign of Justinian, to try to save the world. --- Harriet Klausner
