NEW! Set in the Starover Universe along with Acts of Conscience, Hunting On Kunderer, and A Plague of All Cowards, A Last War for the Oriflamme is a tale of friendship, betrayal, and revenge, set in the 38th century, around the time of the founding of the Terran Colony System. Shundersen and his childhood best friend Divincola have been sold into slavery as punishment for an idiotic crime, where we find out what one man will do to another in a bid to escape justice, and what another man will do in search of another kind of justice when his trust has been betrayed. As Shundersen says, "We tried to hate each other, me blaming him for all the jealous mischief he'd caused, to our eventual ruin, he insisting I'd brought it all on myself, and eventually on him. But we both needed an ally... and each was all the other one had."
