The mission is simple: escort Dr. Nadir and her team of aid workers through insurgent-held territory to a remote village on Idun-3.
Veteran Lieutenant Ralph Hague and his platoon have completed far more dangerous assignments fulfilling the Berserker’s contract with Biodyne Industries.
When an army of radical cultists, the Immortals, arrive in search of Biodyne’s research on a life-extending drug, Hague and his troops are redirected into the heart of a war-torn planet to rescue Biodyne personnel and their data from a secret research facility called Outpost 16. There he witnesses horrors that shock him to his very core. Surrounded by hostile forces, he must choose between his duty and his conscience. Barely escaping the outpost, Hague’s platoon and the civilians in his charge trek through the deadly jungle, pursued by fanatical Immortal troops and local insurgents hell-bent on killing them.
Outgunned and outmanned, Hague must outwit his enemies to escape. Even his superior training and extensive experience might not save him. The Immortal leader won’t leave without his Holy Writ—and he will annihilate every Berserker on Idun-3 to get it.
The mission has changed. Hague’s only objective is survival.
Pound of Flesh is a thrilling stand-alone novel set in the gritty War’s Edge universe. Intended for mature listeners.
