Heroic pilots must rely on their psychic gifts, archaic swordsmanship, and advanced combat training to survive deep space dogfights and bloody close quarters melee. They step up to defend the universe, and then come back to a harem of beautiful women, if they survive. Pretty good deal for a couple of top gun starfighter jocks.
Corwin and Tank have earned some much deserved rest and relaxation after, but they soon find their victory over the Roka short lived, as they must engage in deep space dogfights against a highly organized criminal cartel that is selling the disturbing new drug Black Mirror. To make matters worse, the pirate Queen Dredge and her mighty warship Thunder Horse have appeared in the sector and seem determined to break the cartels personally, and they don't care who or what they destroy in the process. With his psychic powers growing by the day, Corwin must contend with the visions that his gift is showing him. He can see inside the minds of damaged and dangerous people, from Dredge to his own new romantic interest Precious, the possibly reformed and definitely deranged Roka terrorist. Corwin must harness his passion and focus his talents if he is going to survive this rough and tumble intergalactic adventure.
