(From the publisher):
Thanks to the warriors of Earth, a nightmare is history...But new terror looms in an onrushing future.
When called to do battle many light years from home, the 1st Marine Interstellar Expeditionary Unit rose to the challenge - and now thousands of enslaved humans have been freed from the alien yoke. But Earth is twenty-one years older than the home planet they originally left, and the Marines need time to retrain and readjust - time they do not have, due to the bizzare disappearance of a detachment of their brothers- and sisters-in-arms. It is a mystery, but there is a starting point: an ancient wormhole threading through the Sirius system. Whatever waits on the other side must be confronted, with stealth, with force, and without fear - be it an ancient enemy or a devastating new threat.
The Marines are heading into the perilous unknown... and what transpires there could reshape the universe for millennia to come.
