Despite a checkered past, Knight Centurion Talon Vance has proven himself to be a hero of the highest order. But now an unprecedented challenge lies before him. Crown Princess Naomi, heir to her dying father's throne, has been targeted for assassination by the evil General Mirkham Hesatan. Their desperate flee from persecution will take them from the perils of deep space combat to a desolate world full of exotic locales, treacherous environments, a ferocious flying monstrosity, and hostile natives of both human and alien origin. But the greatest test of all lies within the heart. With the fate of an entire Star Kingdom hanging precariously in the balance, our heroes will be forced to choose... between Duty and Desire.
"An old-fashioned, rollicking, roller-coaster space opera full of battles, plot twists, heroic characters and truly evil villains... Mr. Downing's prose flows smoothly as a mountain stream... The plot is incredibly fast-paced with some twists, turns and surprises that never cheat the reader... a remarkable performance. If you like action and adventure, don't miss this novel." - End Times Tavern
