After declaring his independence from the corrupt Constellation, rebel General Adolphus knows the crackdown is coming. Now he needs to pull together the struggling Hellhole colony, the ever-expanding shadow-Xayan settlement, and his connections with the other Deep Zone worlds. Even then, he doubts his desperate measures will be enough. Diadem Michella Duchenet has collected a huge space fleet led by Commodore Escobar Hallholme, son of the hero who originally defeated Adolphus. They expect resistance from the General's rebels, but who could possibly stand up to such a mighty fleet?

Adolphus knows he’s running out of time, but he still has some hope - the shadow-Xayans have banded together to defend their sacred planet with "telemancy". But can they discover new powers to protect all the stored alien lives on the already devastated world?

And when all hope seems lost, the awakened Xayans reveal information hidden even from their own followers - the existence of a bigger threat that makes even the Constellation fleet seem insignificant. Disaster has come for General Adolphus and Hellhole...and this time there is no escape.

Kevin J. Anderson's novels have been on national bestseller lists twenty-seven times.  His Star Wars - Jedi Academy trilogy were the three top-selling science fiction novels of 1994. 

Anderson signed the largest science fiction contract in publishing history, to write a prequel trilogy to Frank Herbert's classic SF novel Dune.  Co-written with Frank Herbert's son Brian.  Anderson has also written numerous bestselling comics, including Star Wars and Predator titles for Dark Horse and X-Files for Topps.

He is married to Rebecca Moesta.

 Brian Herbert
Birth: 29 Jun 1947 Seattle, Washington, USA
Brian Herbert is the oldest son of noted science fiction author Frank Herbert who wrote the Dune series of books.  Brian has a younger brother Bruce and an older sister Penny.  Brian was an honor student and he graduated early from high school when he was 16.  He married young as well to his wife Jan.  He went to the University of California at Berkeley and received a BA in Sociology.  He has been married for over 30 years and they have three daughters, Julie, Kimberly and Margaux.

Brian did not begin writing until he was nearly 30 years old.  His first two books were Incredible Insurance Claims and Classic Comebacks.  He kept a journal which he used to write a biography of his father Frank Herbert entitled Dreamer of Dune.  Brian Herbert used the entire Dune series to write the Dune Concordence.  He used this as a reference book when writing the Prelude to Dune series with Kevin J Anderson.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
