Lords of War (Star Crusades: Mercenaries, Book 1)

no. 1, Star Crusades: Mercenaries - Star Crusades: Mercenaries

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Lords of War is the first novel in the epic new ‘Mercenaries’ series that chronicles the violent struggles of the sprawling Centauri Alliance.

The Great Biomech War left millions dead, colonies burned, and cities turned to ash. Millions continue to endure in the harshest of conditions. The Alliance attempts to restore order, yet already new enemies have begun to strike at will, encouraged by their weakness. Border planets succumb to the raids of warlords, and many doubt how long the peace will last, after it was won at such cost.

Spartan is a living legend, a veteran of the Alliance Marine Corps, and the victor of a multitude of military campaigns. 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.

Since the end of the war, Spartan and his friends have worked to create an elite fighting force based at Taxxu, for use by the Alliance. Using the latest high-energy weapons, armoured fighting suits and a prototype Confederate-class warship, it will be a force unlike any the Alliance has seen before. Spartan will use this and every other asset at his disposal to save his friends. Nothing, not even the entire might of the invading Anicinàbe clans and their fearsome clan leaders, can stop him, even if it means starting his own private war.

Lords of War is a futuristic military sci-fi adventure that continues to expand the vast universe of the Star Crusades series. Essential and unmissable reading for enthusiasts of the Military sci-fi genre.
