NO WORLD IS SAFE

The Warcage is a feat of unprecedented stellar engineering: two hundred worlds harnessed to an artificial sun. Built to travel through space as a monument to peace between alien species, its voracious rulers have turned it into a nightmarish wasteland, capturing new planets for slaves and resources, then discarding the old.

Now, when a verdant agri-world is pulled out of its orbit and a deal goes bad, it is up to the captain of a smuggling ship to journey into the Warcage and rescue his crew.

Praise for the Humanity's Fire trilogy:

'A TIGHTLY PLOTTED, ACTION-PACKED EPIC THAT LEAVES YOU WANTING MORE' SciFiNow

'THE INVENTION IS ENDLESS' SFX
