The Sequel to the Critically-Praised The Course of Empire. Space Adventure from a New York Times Best-Selling Author.

Reviewing The Course of Empire, Publishers Weekly wrote, “Can a proud and warlike people find common cause with their alien conquerors in the face of a greater danger? That's the question that military SF ace Flint and two-time Nebula Award finalist Wentworth ask in this thought-provoking far-future novel. . . . The authors excel at describing how human and Jao customs clash, allowing the reader to discover along with the characters the core beliefs of each society and how these beliefs could be adjusted and harmonized with one another. . . . Building to an exhilarating conclusion, this book cries out for a sequel.”
            The cry has been heard—and now, here’s the sequel!
