(4.8 / 5)
When the genocidal invasion of the Taljzi brought promises of help from the oldest and greatest of the core powers, mankind and the empire looked for salvation to the Mesharom. But that salvation comes to ash as the Mesharom demands that the very guns that rescued the Empire be surrendered.
Defiance puts the Imperium confronting the Taljzi without the aid of the wisest breed of the galaxy, but they have no option but to stop this conflict at any price with their ancient friends the Kanzi at their hand.
But both Mesharom and Taljzi spread flame and murder through the heavens. Under Fleet Lord Harriet Tanaka, the Imperial Forces will need every firepower chip and cleverness not only to beat their enemies… but to discover them first.
