A new standalone epic space opera, set in the same world as the Humanity's Fire trilogy.
It was named Bringer of Battles, three hundred worlds orbiting a single
artificial star, three hundred battlefields where different species vie
for mastery and triumph. It is a cage where war is a game, brutal,
savage and sudden. In this arena, all must bend the knee to the Lords of
Permutation (and the ancient sentient weapons with which they have
merged) or suffer indescribable agonies.
Trapped in this draconian crucible of death Brannan Pyke, captain and smuggler, must find a way to fight his way to freedom.
Because in the Bringer of Battles the game of war is played to the death - and beyond.
