(From the publisher):
The Gurus came in peace, bearing gifts. They were a highly advanced, interstellar species who brought amazingly useful technology to the human race.
There was, of course, a catch. The Gurus warned of a far more malevolent olife form, beings who had hounded them across the cosmos. The Antagonists - or Antags - had already established a beachhead on Mard. In return for all they'd done for us, the Gurus wanted our help.
Enter Master Sergeant Michael Venn, a veteran Marine trqained off-world combat, dropped onto the Red Planet with his band of brothers on a mission to take down as many Antags as possible.
But from the moment they're dropped through the thin Martian atmosphere, their mission goes horribly, terribly wrong. From a unit of female special ops with secret orders, to a group of mysterious humans who have settled on Mars, to the overwhelming Antags themselves, Venn and his brothers will face impossible odds.
Their training may not be enough to let them survive, let alone make it home alive. But someone has to defend humanity...
