Product Description: Five hundred years from now, humankind has found a link to a remarkably Earth-like planet and settled there, dividing –as humans will -- into dozens of nation-states. The Federated States of Columbia has consolidated power and risen against the oppression of Earth's corrupt Caliphate. But when Salafi madmen bent on a new jihad kill FSC Captain Patrick Hennessey's family in a cowardly attack, they create an enemy that will show even less mercy than they do.
A legendary warrior is born: Â Carrera, the scourge of Salafism. He will forge an army from the decrepit remains of a military in a failing state. Â He will find those who killed his family. He will destroy them utterly. And he will try like hell to not become exactly like the enemy he is fighting.
