Damien Montgomery returns to the field one last time and joins Roslyn Chambers on a quest to discover who tried to kidnap the Mage-Queen of Mars. Their investigation turns up ghosts of Roslyn’s past and digs into the heart of a deeper conspiracy that threatens not only the Protectorate of Mars, but the entire human race.
Here’s more about the book:
A failed attempt on the Mage-Queen
An old friend from the gutter
An enemy that should be dead…
When a kidnapping attempt on the Mage-Queen of Mars is thwarted by luck, leaving thousands dead in its wake, Prince-Chancellor Damien Montgomery returns to field operations one more time. The evidence leads to one place: Tau Ceti.
In Tau Ceti, Mage-Commander Roslyn Chambers finds herself without a posting as her teaching tour ends. Before she can take any kind of vacation, an old friend from her pre-Navy days shows up claiming to have information about the attempt on the Queen.
Montgomery is the Mage-Queen’s adoptive father and right hand man. Chambers is one of her few true friends. Neither will let the blood of innocents go unpunished.
Neither believes the traitors called Nemesis are dead – but finding them may cost more than either of them can pay!
