    For 2,000 years mankind had suffered a return to the Dark Ages. If Ormson was defeated it might never progress. His armies of Companions had taken Cornath’s capital, and his suicidal ramfleets had swept Cornath’s fleet from the world-girdling ice. But Michael Ormson - called the Ice Prophet by some - had not brought relief to the common people, and his officers were making powerful enemies. Soon Ormson would be fighting for his life - and the outcome would decide whether mankind would forever be prisoner to the forces that had condemned Galileo millennia before.

Forstchen take listeners to the center of a nearly forgotten Civil War confrontation, a battle that was filled with controversy and misinterpretation even before the attack began. Drawing on years of research, the authors weave a complex narrative interweaving the high aspirations of African American troops eager to prove themselves in battle and the anxiety of a president who knows the nation cannot bear another major defeat.
