The desperate battle on far-flung Geronimo may have ended in a qualified victory for the elite MOTH soldiers in their devastating, atomic-powered ATLAS mechs...but the cost was a massive one, paid in blood. Rade Galaal, graduate of the toughest military training in the universe, barely survived the terrifying mission in deep space that claimed the lives of the two people he couldn't afford to lose: a comrade who was more than a brother, and someone who was his whole world.
Lost, broken, and questioning his place as a MOTH and as a man, Rade faces a new crisis when an enemy force--a terrifyingly familiar one--threatens the future of humanity itself. Entering human territory from the depths of uncharted space where Rade lost everything, this massive alien vessel wears the face of death.
Once the nightmarish invader begins threatening total annihilation, can Rade and his team hope to prevail...or even survive?
