Dirty, gritty and action-packed adventure featuring the galaxy's most dangerous mercenaries, THE BASTARD LEGION.
THIS IS MILITARY SCIENCE FICTION AT ITS BEST.
'High octane SF adventure with Smith's trademark twist' Jamie Sawyer, author of The Lazarus War
It was the kind of dirty, violent job the Bastards were made for. Protect a bunch of helpless colonists in the Epsilon Eridani system. A quick, easy job. Even if the planet was a war zone as megacorp-backed mercenaries fought a brutal proxy war. They could handle it. A quick, easy job. . . their kind of fight.
But a hundred headless corpses are hard to explain, even for the Bastard Legion, and soon they are on the run, abandoned by their allies, and hunted by their most dangerous foe yet . . .
'An exceptional talent' Peter F Hamilton
A 'Dirty Dozen' or 'Suicide Squad' for lovers of 'Aliens', THE BASTARD LEGION series is a down and dirty military SF set in a world of mercenary actions and covert operations.
