In this book, Douglas Oliver has survived the siege of Aphelion but the threat posed by the nation of Gath is far from over.
Every five years, Gath sponsors a Grand Tournament, where future leaders are pitted against each other in a series of violent contests. No outsider has ever won the Grand Tournament. Douglas Oliver is determined to change that.
