Colonel Bill Booly earned a promotion and well-deserved hero treatment for his troops after they stopped a mutiny against Earth's government. But now they face the ultimate challenge...a different race.
A "new" alien race, the Thrakies, has appeared, asking permission to settle in Confederacy space. Politics make it happen, but with the arrangement comes...a different danger.
The Thrakies have been pursued for centuries, and through galaxies, by a fleet of bloodthirsty machines programmed to destroy them. And now a fanatical human has reprogrammed the killer technology - to eliminate all sentient beings. The Confederacy and every one of its reluctant allies must unite to face the invasion, with a leader who is...a different kind of hero.
General Bill Booly is leading the fight of his life. A battle for the future of every living being in the universe...
