Tal Peters is a wild-talent telepath and conman; Jandro Dalden is a part-time barfighter. Their combined skillset is ideal for petty thievery and pointless troublemaking. Saving interstellar civilisation… not so much.
Major Sarah Caide is a hard-charging mercenary commander who gets things done. Not always the way her superiors would like, but the best part of making an omelette is breaking the eggs.
When contact with the Home Worlds is cut off, the Far Avalon region begins to slide into chaos. Warlords battle for control over First Landing Starport whilst the Colonial District Authority struggles to find a place in the new order.
After accidentally triggering a revolution, Tal and Jandro find themselves nervously allied with Caide in a bid to save a civilisation they never knew they cared about. Tal must confront his past and Jandro his future, whilst Caide leads the fight against the neobarbarian hordes.
With most of First Landing on fire or in ruins, an invasion fleet in orbit and gunmen running wild in the streets, night is falling on Far Avalon. Yet somehow, in the trail of larceny and mayhem left behind them, Tal and Jandro may have sown the seeds of salvation.
It may not be too late to prevent nightfall in Avalon.
