The Empire is preparing for the next Ca'cadasan onslaught. But this time they plan to bleed the Cacas to the point where they are ripe for the next counteroffensive to roll them back to their own space.
The Caca Emperor had his own plan, one that will send the human peoples reeling.The Ca'cadasan Emperor realizes that as long as the humans have their wormhole generating station the war will be in doubt. He comes up with an audacious plan to strike at the Donut from out of the dark. The Cacas now have wormholes of their own, and while not in the same quantity as the humans, still an equalizer if used judiciously. A strike on the Donut and the Capital planet of Jewel could leave the humans paralyzed, while his fleet launches a massive offensive to recapture the New Moscow systems. And New Moscow could become the springboard into the New Terran Empire.
Science fiction in the tradition of Anderson and Weber, where the physics of normal and hyperspace dictate the strategy and tactics. Enormous fleets battle across the immensity of space with advanced technologies. Can the proud human Fleet hold off the tide of an advancing enemy, rallying allies and deploying new tech? Or will the conquerors achieve what they could not two thousand years before, and end the existence of the upstarts.
The alliance built by Sean is also at risk, as the Elysium and Crakista Empires reevaluate their role in the human led coalition. Sean is depending on their ships, but will they be there when he needs them the most. And on the Second Front a new offensive is going forward into Ca'cadasan space. But the new Caca commander is not like the last, and he has plans of his own to defeat them. The Empire is faced with a crisis, one that could take all of their gains, all of their victories, away from them. Sean could lose more than his Empire if the Cacas have their way.
