Meanwhile, Slate has decided to split his forces to delay the Collective attack while removing a threat to his flank. He soon learns that assaulting the city of Koral may be a harder task than he originally considered. He turns to the Empire to help him weaken the Collective and protect his own people in the process.
When Slate is forced to return to Bastion without his companions, he is faced with an old enemy that threatens to raze his capital city’s defenses and allow the easy invasion of the Collective army from the West.
In book three of the Scourge Wars, Slate must accomplish one thing: Resist or die.
