Volume 2 Contains The Shiva Option and Insurrection
Spacers call the warp point Charon's Ferry.
No star ship has ever entered it and returned since a vengeful Orion task force pursued a doomed Terran colonization fleet into it in 2206.
Almost a century has passed. The fiery hatreds of a quarter-century of warfare between the Terran Federation and the Zheeerlikou'valkhannaieeee, the cat-like species humans called the 'Orions,' have eased at least a little. The 'Grand Alliance' forged by the need to fight side-by-side against the genocidal Rigelians remains, but there are those on either side who continue to hate, continue to distrust.
Now the strength of that war-forged alliance is about to be tested. For Charon's Ferry is about to give up the secret of its dead. A ship has emerged from the deadly warp point at last. A ship which responds to the challenge of an Orion star ship using ancient human communications codes . . . then opens fire.
The holocaust of interstellar warfare has been ignited anew, in a bloody crusade to free Holy Mother Terra.
In Death Ground:
In difficult ground, press on;
In encircled ground, devise stratagems;
In death ground, fight.
-Sun Tzu in The Art of War (circa 400 B.C.)
