The latest and most disturbing move by Voice has left Elm Caden in no doubt. One way or another, the Great War of the Shaeld could be over sooner than anyone expected.
Burdened with dissent from all quarters, and attacked from within by the infiltrators of the enemy, the Imperial Combine is preparing for the final defence of Earth. But those who have banded together to strike back at Voice know this will not be enough — worlds are falling across the entire galaxy, and defending one planet will make little difference.
As an invasion force masses close to Sol, and key Imperial worlds come under direct threat, Elm Caden must now take extreme steps to safeguard humanity's future. But that future is becoming increasingly uncertain, and Caden can now say only one thing for sure...
This is the Beginning of the End.
