From the Alliance, the task of hunting down the perpetrators falls to intelligence officer Major John Gresham, whose background offers not only insight into galactic terror cells but also anonymous access to the labyrinthine defense establishment. The Empire sends Akgu Zurra, unquestioningly loyal and determined to hunt down those who murdered his sovereign. Their investigations lead in the same direction, forcing the two into unwelcome cooperation as they try to disrupt the network of their common enemy.
But that enemy, known only as the Forbidden Army, isn’t just a well-organized group of malcontents from the alien slums – they enjoy resources that suggest their funding comes from connected insiders on both sides. Gresham and Zurra may distrust each other, but justice means exposing powerful figures as traitors and the attacks as part of a broader plot to destabilize the galactic order. If those traitors can’t render the investigators ineffective, they’ll settle for dead.
The Forbidden Army is the first book in The League of Planets Adventure.
