At the edge of known space, Marine Lieutenant Gant Maker continues his vengeful pursuit of the alien race known as the Vacra.
Now confirmed to have stolen weapons and tech so advanced that it can’t even be classified, the Vacra represent a menace unlike anything mankind has ever faced. For Maker, the threat is also personal, as the treacherous and cunning insectoids - still smarting from their stunning defeat at his hands during their last encounter - have specifically targeted him for capture, along with his exotic alien companion, Erlen.
Going well beyond any charted or civilized worlds, Maker and his loyal crew of misfits once again find themselves outnumbered and outgunned. With the fate of humanity hanging in the balance, even their unique talents may not be enough to overcome the odds this time, which include not only the Vacra’s alien armada, but a mysterious being with the ability to utterly destroy anything it touches.
