Zak Cato has had better days; his entire unit murdered, their lone and very dangerous prisoner taken, and he had an awesome hangover. It was up to Cato to sober up, avenge his comrades in arms, and recapture a killer.
Characters come to life in a vast universe filled with imagination and action. A flawed but determined hero sweeps the reader up and into the action and doesn’t let go until the finish. The murder and intrigue along with the trials, tribulations, and victories of the cast of characters make this one you can’t put down until the end.
AT EMPIRE'S EDGE is the first volume of a brand new duology
From the national bestselling author of When Duty Calls, the first book in an exciting new science fiction duology.
In a far-distant future, the Uman Empire has spread to the stars and beyond, conquering and colonizing worlds, ruling with a benevolent—but iron—fist. The Pax Umana reigns, and all is well. But on one planet, the remnants of a violent, shape-shifting race called the Sagathis are confined, kept captive by xeno-cops, who have been bio-engineered to be able to see through their guises. Still, sometimes one manages to escape.
Zak Cato is a xeno-cop. He's returning a fugitive Sagathi when things go horribly wrong. Cato— the only survivor after the rest of his men are slaughtered—must now figure out who betrayed them and bring the alien in, whatever the cost.
