When All Seems Lost

Legion of the Damned 7

The New York Times bestselling author of Battle Hymn continues his Legion of the Damned sci-fi military series with an “. . . adrenaline-fueled Clancy-esque adventure” that “. . . is Dietz in top form.”—Publishers Weekly

The war against the seemingly unstoppable Ramanthian menace is faltering, with Confederacy forces under relentless attack. Desperate for allies, President Nankool—accompanied by his advisors and diplomat Christine Vanderveen—is headed for a summit that could secure some much needed support from the Alpha Clones when his fleet is ambushed.

Vanderveen, Nankool, and the few other survivors are taken prisoner, though their identities remain thankfully unknown. Condemned to a labor camp on a remote planet, the loyal Vanderveen must not only deal with her vicious captors, but with those who might be willing to betray their government and President Nankool. But soon none of that will matter—since the planet is about to be overrun by billions of Ramanthian hatchlings, all eager to feed on human flesh.

Their only hope lies in the hands of Vanderveen’s one-time lover Captain Antonio Santana, and the Legion’s cybernetically-enhanced warriors, who are about to launch an impossible rescue mission that will decide not only the fate of the captives, but that of the civilized galaxy.
