They gained their freedom. And lost everything.

Jared, Sahara, and their friends destroyed the Drakkin and ended their reign of terror, but not before the Drakkin exiled the people of Albadir into the void of space on a disabled ship. Determined to find their people and bring them home, they gamble everything on a desperate rescue operation.

But nothing can prepare them for the deadly truth. As they track the ship across the system, from the prison moon K’ilenfir to Brytnoth’s Askalon, they discover the price of their victory over the Drakkin. A new tyranny has risen from the ashes — a ruthless paramilitary gang of drug lords and slave dealers headed by a group called the Triumvirate, which is now poised to decimate anyone and any world that stands in the way of their quest for power.

The stakes have never been higher. The danger has never been greater. And when Jared and Sahara discover that their people have fallen into the Triumvirate’s clutches, they must make a terrible choice. Will they fight for freedom once again?

And if they do, what will be the cost this time?

They thought they had destroyed the evil. It was only asleep.

Victory comes at a bitter cost. As Sahara, Jared, and their friends help Askalon to rebuild, the fragile planet faces a new threat. The Triumvirate had promised the fanatical ruler of the planet Halcyon a shipment of the galaxy's most dangerous mineral...and Askalon has no intention of paying up.

Sahara and Jared travel to Halcyon in a desperate attempt to renegotiate the debt, but the welcome they receive is not the one they expected. As the team on Halcyon is scattered, the situation on Askalon begins to unravel. And secrets and plots too long buried come creeping back to light.

Their friends race to save Askalon from collapse as Sahara struggles to overcome the demons of her past once and for all. 

But Jared must face a greater darkness than all of them, and he must face it alone.

They have wakened a deep evil, and now the fate of all worlds hangs in the balance.
