Wanting a fresh start, John Cross, decorated soldier and hero of the Vridian sieges, resigned his commission with the Iron Phalanx Corps in 2052 and disappeared into the furthest reaches of space.

Now a gun for hire, he hunts the most ruthless fugitives across the most treacherous planets in the galaxy. Cross has all but forgotten the past, but the vengeful general at the head of a thousand alien warships never will.

War made him a hero. Saving the universe will make him a legend.
