Entering into a treaty with the Olarans, a race who can block the effects of magic, and the Order of Elora, commanded by Imperial sorcerers who were the most loyal servants of Emperor Belack, Empress Hefrask implements the next phase of her plan for the conquest of the Ladorran Quadrant. The second phase involves confronting and removing the primary threat to her plans: Grogaan and the Guardians of the Republic.
Grogaan’s enhanced abilities in the art of magic, his inner calm and impeccable self-control, are put the ultimate test when one friend is abducted and another killed when confronted by the sorcerers from the Order of Elora and the Hebradon Empire who have united in the fight against the Guardians of the Republic. Facing opposition from several Guardians, Grogaan ventures deep into Imperial controlled space in the search for knowledge of the Guardians, their magic, and why they failed to retain their postion of trust and power in the galaxy.
About the Author
I am an indie author of science fiction and fantasy novels, my current focus being on my Science Fiction series the Guardians, and have been writing for 13 years. I live in Pembrokeshire, Wales which has been my home for the last 16 years. I am married with two children, both have left home, my daughter married with a family of her own living in Pembrokeshire, my son living and working in Cardiff. I also have two beautiful grandchildren. I have served with the Royal Air Force as a dual trade aircraft engineer after completing a 3 year apprenticeship, run my own business for several years until a back injury prevented me from continuing, and then entered the world of finance. I am currently employed as a Local Government Finance Officer. I have been a passionate reader since early childhood, but was introduced to the fantasy genre at the age of 10 when my father gave me some Conan books and the Thongor of Lemuria series by Lin Carter. I did not actually start writing until my mid thirties, after injuring my back and was off work for a while. It was then that I first penned the drafts of the Science Fiction series The Guardians, followed by the fantasy series The Chronicles of Ferantiana. My favourite activities other than writing are walking, reading, researching family history, watching classic British Sitcoms, good dramas and films, and listening to music. W. H. Cann

The Guardians take center stage in this installment. Many planets are visited and some former members of the Evil Empire see the error of their ways and join up with the Republicans. I especially liked the discovery of the non human sentient beings, both good and bad. Off to the final book. - MLS
