From Book Description:
A future war is being fought across the galaxy and the key to victory can be found on the legendary lost world where humanity originated-Earth. But even if the lost home world can be found, there may be no place for humans on it anymore. The creatures who are now the sole inhabitants, and which mankind once dominated, have been raised to a high level of intelligence and the future they plan is not one with any room for the former rulers of the planet. This future saga is here assembled for the first time, as well as several bonus short novels in a huge volume of highly original space adventure.
