Sethlan is an officer of the empire. He was raised from birth to fight in the trenches that span the continent: The Eternal Front.
Lucky Strike is an independent prospector ship. It wants colonization rights for the planet, but first it has to let the inhabitants knock themselves back to the stone age. Hanging in orbit, influencing both sides, it crafts the death of the world.
Sethlan sees his war changing but he can’t find the cause. Now the Eternal Front is on the brink of collapse, and its violence will spread like wildfire to ravage the entire planet.
Desperate, outclassed, and under suspicion from the imperial secret police, Sethlan frantically untangles the Lucky Strike’s plans. Along the way he stumbles across a hidden conspiracy — and a possible solution: a popular revolt against the empire itself.
It comes down to a choice Sethlan doesn’t want to make. He can betray a lifetime of service or he can watch his world burn.
Read The Eternal Front and plunge into a civilization on the brink of collapse.
