Lords of War
Spartan is a living legend, a veteran of the Alliance Marine Corps, victor of a multitude of military campaigns including the horrific Biomech War. He is both loved and reviled by friend and foe alike, and now lives out on the fringes of the Alliance. He has fought for money, for his people and for the very survival of his species, and lost everything in the process. But when two of his closest friends are captured supplying weapons to the desperate Byotai settlers of Karnak, the fight becomes personal.
The newly formed Interstellar Assault Brigade has been tested in secret, but their first official combat action will send a shockwave through the Alliance. A group of mercenaries and criminals have occupied part of Old Spascia City , the scene of some of the heaviest fighting in the Biomech War. They have heavily fortified the entire area, and beaten off numerous attempts by local forces to defeat them.
Flames of War
A new conflict is growing, and it will soon escalate into all-out war. A war that will engulf the colonies of a hundred worlds and could spread to the fragile Alliance. Massive fleets of ships engage in battle, and conflict rages far below on the disputed worlds of the Tenth Quadrant. The valiant defenders desperately need help, but none of the major powers will intervene and risk bringing war to their own territory. There is only one man who will do whatever it takes. A man who will break any rule, and fight any enemy in order to win. His name is Spartan.
Battle for Karnak
Karnak is a battleground, a planet torn apart by a dozen warring factions. Spartan and his small band of mercenaries and militia have won battle after battle. Now they must prepare for their final test, an assault on the heavily defended enemy capital, Montu. The plan is torn apart when a huge fleet of reinforcements appears. A fleet that threatens to overwhelm the valiant rebels.
The war rages on, with no sign of victory for either side. Spartan and his loyalist soldiers win battle after battle against the Star Empire, but they are losing the war against this new and invigorated foe. Every day, more heavily armed troops arrive to bolster the enemy. Many of Spartan's exhausted Byotai allies want to surrender, but he will never back down, no matter the odds. He promised to fight this war, and fight it he will.
Empires at War
The Star Empire is on the move and sends its vast armadas to the border of the Alliance. A single cataclysmic naval engagement that will decide the fate of billions. It is a sudden and brilliant move and leaves the Alliance’s finest warriors far from the final battle. There is nothing Spartan will not sacrifice to succeed, because he knows that only he and his forces can end this war.
