A prequel novella.
Elias Holm is the
Commandant of the Marine Corps, a hero who has fought a hundred battles
all across human-occupied space. He's led massive armies in the greatest
battles ever fought in space. But once he was only a captain, thrust
into command when a crucial operation went horribly awry.
The Second Frontier War had raged for a decade. Throughout human-occupied space, worlds were in ruins, the battlegrounds of the Superpowers' eternal struggle. The climactic battle would be fought on the planet Persis, and Holm would have to fight not only the Caliphate's elite Janissary soldiers, but treachery and betrayal from his own government.
The Gates of Hell is not a full length novel - it is a prequel novella set in the Crimson Worlds universe.
