Series: Dark Wing
(From the publisher):
The Dark Path introduced a new alien force into the delicate balance of power, one that was the actual puppet-master of the human-zor war and now wishes to bring both worlds under its madness-inducing shadow, while The Dark Ascent brought into focus a secret conspiracy that is disrupting the balance of power on both a military and metaphysical level.
But the same ancient philosophy of the zor race that prophesizied the "Dark Wing" has also foreseen a hero that will meet the new menace - a hero now mystically embodied in a rebellious space commodore by the name of Jackie Laperriere.
Now, in The Dark Crusade, as armadas clash and outposts fall, the overly confident alien menace is forced to confront a zor-human alliance that has been warned, their covert and insidious plans of infiltration now exposed, but all is not as it seems to be. The "vuhl menace" may not be the ultimate enemy, and the all-powerful puppet-masters that have lurked in the shadows have entered the the endgame, where the mysteries of alien prophesies may have already determined the outcome.
Although victory is hardly ascertained for either side in The Dark Crusade, its page-turning and thought-provoking climax will forever alter the fate of sentient life in the galaxy.
