"Wha'ch'u want, littl' man?" The GREL's breath was as bad as his diction.
"I'm here to meet someone. A Major Bukharin. My name is Naed Stamens." Major Ceritto, his handler, had said the Arthurian officer would be waiting for him.

They pinned his arms behind his back. He shook his head to clear his vision and came face to face with Major Eva Bukharin. She was holding a long, thin knife with several serrated protrusions.

The harsh world of Terra Nova was once the jewel in Earth's colonial crown, but it was eventually abandoned and forced to fend for itself. The planet has thrived since then. Home to 250 million humans, this once marginal world is now home to diverse cultures and belligerent nations. The confederations that rule the hemispheres are poised on the verge of war, trapping the desertic Badlands in the middle. Intrigue and action blend across the world as a global conflict begins.
