Also known as Commander Flandry.
The Barbarians in their long ships waiting at the edge of the Galaxy...
...waiting for the ancient Terran Empire to fall, while two struggled to save it: ex-Admiral McCormc, forced to rebel against a corrupt Emperor and Starship Commander Flandry, the brilliant young officer who served the Imperium even as he scorned it.
Trapped between them was the woman they both loved but couldn't share: the beautiful Kathryn – whose single word could decide the fate of a billion suns.
