War threatens to destroy Earth’s last hope in the final installment of the Owner trilogy!
Alan Saul is now part human and part machine. He craves the stars, yet his human side still controls him; he can’t leave his to sister die. He must leave Argus Station and stage a dangerous rescue. But Saul’s robots make his crew feel increasingly redundant, sowing the seeds of mutiny and betrayal.
Serene Galahad, Earth’s ruthless dictator, hides her crimes from a cowed populace as she desperately readies a new attack on Saul. She aims to destroy her enemy in a vicious display of violence.
The Scourge limps back to Earth, its earlier mission to annihilate Saul a failure. Some members of the decimated crew plan to murder Galahad before she has them murdered for their failure, but Clay Ruger plans to negotiate for his life. Events build to a climax as Ruger holds humanity’s greatest asset seeds to rebuild a dying Earth. This stolen Gene Bank data is offered at a price, but what will Galahad pay for humanity’s future?
