A dirty deal was struck. Humanity was allowed to keep 300 rebellious worlds. In return, we declared war on a powerful enemy from beyond the frontier. A frantic build-up of forces has begun, but the task is hopeless. Seeking allies, Earth's legions are sent to Blood World. A planet on the fringe of known space, where the people only respect masters of combat. Earth's Legions must impress them, but other alien powers have been invited to join the contest. The prize consists of billions of loyal troops - Earth must win.

A poor gap filler in the series with too many errors. Feels like this was written just to fill some pages without much consideration and snapped off at the end. At times a copy and past from previous books too. Great narration though.

Overtly verbose and too much navel gazing. Made me feel a little ill with the amount of greed packed in with minimal actual good content.

A story that was interesting at times but had little direction. Feels like to get anywhere this is going to drag out. A lot of seemingly pointless padding included. Perhaps redemption is waiting in the next book? Doubt it
