The ravenous aliens known as the Horde make their way across the Universe like locusts, stripping bare entire galaxies and leaving death and destruction in their wake.
Now, they stand on the edge of the Milky Way.
It seems all is lost, but the denizens of our galaxy are not content to give up without a fight. To that end, a galaxy-wide defense force has been assembled, with each star system contributing their greatest warrior to the battle.
Enter Miles Vander, the best a tiny backwater like Earth has to offer. Vander may be the key to destroying the Horde. But first he’ll have to prove his worthiness to his alien compatriots.
A classic of military SF from Hugo and Nebula Award-winning master of science fiction Gordon R. Dickson.
