Book One of The Capellan Solution.
The ambitious First Lord of the resurrected Star League launches a campaign to rebuild the ancient Capellan Confederation. With his sights set on expanding his borders through the reclamation of the St. Ives Compact, he is brought into direct conflict with his own family. Supported by the ferocious Hustang Warriors, the threat poses a danger to all who would oppose the First Lord's rule. With military units divided in their loyalties, the question remains: Who is willing to pay the higher price in blood?
