Former military super-commando Cal Mitchell is enjoying the pastoral life on his remote star colony home of Canaan, having put the fight against the Corporate Council behind him.
But his past comes back to haunt him when a hired assassin makes an attempt on his life. On the heels of this threat, his old friend and former partner Deke Conner and DSI agent Kara McIntire arrive to warn him of a new conspiracy by old enemies, and this time the stakes are no lower than the fate of the galaxy.
The hunt is on for the fabled Northwest Passage, the extra-dimensional pathway that will give its discoverer access to the rest of the universe…and perhaps to the magical technology of the long-lost Predecessors, an ancient race of aliens who left behind an incredible legacy of terraformed worlds and wormhole passages.
The quest for the Northwest Passage will take Caleb and his friends and family to the farthest reaches of the Commonwealth and beyond into the unknown, where the prize for success may be an even darker fate than the price of failure.
Book 3 of the Birthright Series from Rick Partlow, set in his bestselling Drop Trooper Universe. This is Military Science Fiction the way it’s meant to be.
