The empire has endured many centuries but is now threatened by multiple wars and a major rebellion in the South.
A nobleman from an infamous family, a fighter and a right proper bastard of a man, Captain Ben Stiger finds himself reassigned from a crack legion to the rebellion simmering in the South. Placed in command of a truly terrible company, the 85th Imperial Foot, he is unknowingly sent on a suicide mission to resupply an isolated outpost, the garrison of Vrell, that has mysteriously stopped communicating with the empire.
On his journey to Vrell, Stiger must rebuild his new company and gain the respect of the men he leads if he hopes to come out of this mission alive. His allies fighting alongside of him include one of the few remaining elven rangers and a paladin on a quest for the High Father. Stiger and his company must fight bandits, rebels, and an agent of an evil god all in the quest to uncover the secrets of Vrell and maintain Vrell’s strategic military position in the rebellious South.
The battle to save the empire and the world begins here in the first book of this exciting new series!
