Hayley Cage never expected to find herself running jobs with one of the toughest mercenary units working the galaxy’s edge.
But then, life doesn’t always go as planned. If it did, she would be about to graduate as an officer in the Republic military, not prepping for a routine rescue mission on a backwater planet in the middle of nowhere. A mission that’s about to go straight to hell.
When a bad deal leads to a worse situation, Hayley and her squad find themselves trapped planet-side, under heavy attack, and fighting to survive against the most dangerous threat they’ve ever encountered. A threat they can’t afford to leave unchecked, even if it means they have to die to stop it.
If they don’t, it’s going to be a whole lot more than their lives that are lost. It’s going to be the whole galaxy.
The enemy always seems to be one step ahead, ready to intercept at every turn. When Hayley’s at a crossroads of trusting someone she doesn’t or not trusting someone she does, she has only one choice: Soldier up and double down. Lay everything on the line.
