The events in this book happen eight hundred and ninety-five years into the future, in a time when man has colonized much of the galaxy, where powerful governments and corporations control star systems throughout known space. Keden and Earth have a history of bad blood, making their alliance solely one of convenience. Iron Five is a military unit under the control of Earthfront, one of the leading powers-that-be, powers engaged in an intergalactic race to bridge the gap to a new galaxy. The Raiku Dynasty, another titan in the political hierarchy of the Milky Way, in an attempt to seize resources that will further their progress, invades the territories of Earthfront and Keden. Iron Five, led by Captain Richard Gant, on mission to find those responsible for hijacking a top-secret shipment, discover that they are after the wrong people, and while foes become unexpected allies, Raiku operatives within Earthfront and their plans of an invasion are exposed. Gant and his team must now battle alongside Kedeni forces to repel the invasion on Keden and return to Earth where a greater challenge awaitsâ€¦to find and destroy the enemyâ€™s jump gate before their main fleet uses it to arrive in Sol. There, in a nearby star system, they will stop the Dynastyâ€™s war machine. While Iron Five battles for survival thousands of light years away, Prince Akata Kumasi, a pilot and special agent of West Afrika, is on a mission that places him at the heart of Gena, the core world of the Raiku. Along with insurgents and disloyal heads of state, he becomes a part of an uprising that will dethrone the ruling Lord and secure an end to the war.
