Dwarves, The Fae, Knights Templars, and a host of Extraterrestrial Beings, all either trying to destroy enslave or save humanity. Space Battles, Betrayal, losses, Sacrifices and Heroism abound throughout. An enjoyable, easy well written sci-fi military, space opera, fantasy read. Recommend you start with the prequel, " The Veil" or Bk1 " The Veil Rising" as each book is a continuation of the last. Will be keeping Mr Brandon Ellis on my to read list.
