A galactic revolution has toppled the Starfire dynasty, and swept into power the harsh Democratic Republic. To support the murdered king is now punishable by death. But on distant worlds, the few surviving Guardians carry a dangerous secret: Somewhere in the galaxy, they shield the rightful heir to the throne.
Stalking the hidden king is the Warlord, a ruthless Republican general who wields the bloodsword. Only a few brave rebels dare to oppose him: young Dion, who fights to find his destiny; the mercenary Tusk; the outlaw commander Dixter; and the beautiful Lady Maigrey, the only person alive who can match the Warlord’s cunning. Theirs is the ultimate battle against a star-spanning corruption—the ultimate sacrifice for the glory of the lost king’s throne.

Star Wars-y yarn with flaming swords, genetically-engineered royalty and an Evil Republic about a youth who discovers he's heir to the throne.
This series is one of my favorites of all time. I've owned several copies in paperback over the years and will never have to search through my limited storage again now that it is on my Nook! If you like Star Wars, Battlestar Gallactica or any of that genre, this is a must read. You will have a hard time trying to decide if you love or hate Derek Sagan.
This is by far one of the best Science Fiction books I've ever read! I haven't read the rest of the series yet but I can't wait to pick up where i left off! Go Derek Sagan! :D
