Vega 3 has been invaded and overwhelmed by the Sirian Confederacy, its women raped, its society enslaved. The Vegans have put up a vicious fight worthy of their Viking ancestors, charging the Sirians a gallon of blood for every yard of the planet, but now the fight is over, the battle lost. Vega 3 has been conquered.

But deep in the Scroll of Sophia, that mystical goddess the Vegans hold dear, is a nearly forgotten prophecy of a time when the invader’s boot will stand on Vega 3. The prophecy says Sophia will send a sword—a sword of justice—and the invader will be torn asunder.

Is the prophecy real, or just a false hope? And if the prophecy is real, is it really possible to throw the Sirians off of Vega 3? And what…or who…is the “sword of Sophia”?

Visit the cold, dreary world of Vega 3 between the wars, during the time the Fighter Queen was born. Walk among the Sirians but don’t look them in the eye—it’s a dangerous planet out there.

Don't miss this great science fiction action-packed adventure of the resistance on Vega.
