Description

In the future,earth's warriors haveconquered the heavens. But on a distant world,Humanity is in chains... Many millennia ago, the human race was enslaved by the An-a fearsome alien people whose cruel empire once spanned the galaxies, until they were defeated and consigned to oblivion. But a research mission to the planet Ishtar has made a terrifying-and fatal-discovery: the Ahanu, ancestors of the former masters, live on, far from the reach of Earth-born weapons and technology...?nd tens of thousands of captive human souls still bow to their iron will. Now Earth's Interstellar Marine Expeditionary Unit must undertake a rescue operation as improbable as it is essential to humankind's future, embarking on a ten-year voyage to a hostile world to face an entrenched enemy driven by dreams of past glory and intent once more on domination. For those who, for countless generations, have known nothing but toil and subjugation must be granted, at all costs, the precious gift entitled to all of their star-traveling kind: freedom!

Professional reviews

"David Drummond's voice is a perfect fit for this military sci-fi. The first in The Legacy Trilogy is exactly what you'd expect from the title. The story is set in the distant future, when Marines fight in the sky and on the ground, both for Earth and for our ancestors who were stolen by aliens long ago and are still slaves on distant planets. The Corps is our only hope against the hostile alien race, the Anahu, who are intent on enslaving the remainder of humanity. Drummond's strong, clear voice, used with conviction and authority, takes a story rich in technological detail and makes it come to life in an action-packed futuristic world. S.M.
