When your dreams are taken away, what can you do?
Talice Wyloh was a covert-ops Marine. The operative word: “was”.
Now she’s an off-world mercenary, with the best team in the business. And being the best means the most dangerous missions, the strongest of adversaries, the most likely to gain enemies. Including those who were once Marines themselves, and teammates.
Jance Sukano is such an enemy. A brilliant, capable enemy who would do anything to win. Anything.
Talice and Jance have gone toe to toe for a very long time. Stalemate.
And with the disease contracted on her last Marine mission ten years ago still eating at her guts, Talice must come off her deathbed to stop Jance one last time.
Going out in a Blaze of Glory wasn’t what Talice really had in mind.
But sometimes, it’s not about you. It’s about the job.
And Talice Wyloh was never one to back down from a challenge.
