The Lucky 13th The 13th Spacebourne is the elite fighting force of the Accord of Free Worlds. For decades, the Accord tried to keep out of the war that divided the galaxy. But now, they have no choice — it’s fight or die. And the soldiers of the 13th Spacebourne are “the lucky” ones chosen to do it. Side Show The Accord’s campaign to liberate Jordan from the Hegemony has stalled — well short of its objectives. Most important is a secret lab behind enemy lines doing research that could decide the outcome of the war. The soldiers of the Lucky 13th have their assignment, to rescue the scientists and recover their results ... and the boys know all too well that if they fail, nobody will be coming to rescue them.
