The humans of Earth now recognize that the human Colonial Union has saved them unaware of the damaging universe round them. For generations the CU had defended humanity opposed to adversarial extraterrestrial beings, intentionally protecting Earth an ignorant backwater and a resource of army recruits. Now the CU’s secrets and techniques are identified to all. different alien races have come at the scene and shaped a brand new alliance—an alliance opposed to the Colonial Union. And they’ve invited the folks of Earth to hitch them. For a shaken and betrayed Earth, the alternative isn't visible or easy.

Against such chances, dealing with the survival of the Colonial Union won’t be effortless, both. it's going to take diplomatic finesse, political cunning…and an excellent “B Team,” situated at the imaginative Lieutenant Harry Wilson, that may be deployed to house the unpredictable and unforeseen issues the universe throws at you whilst you’re suffering to maintain the cohesion of the human race.

Being released on-line from January to April 2013 as a three-month electronic serial, The Human department will look as a full-length novel of the outdated Man’s struggle universe, plus—for the 1st time in print—the first story of Lieutenant Harry Wilson, and a coda that wasn’t a part of the electronic serialization.

Example text

The sword in Kenn's hands screamed, almost the way a fast-geared millsaw screamed sometimes when biting a tough log. Again it drew its smoking arc, to meet the leaping animal. One orange-furred paw leapt -severed in midair, with a fine spray of blood. The same stroke caught the beast's armored torso, heavier than a man's. It went down, as Mark had seen a rabbit fall when hit in mid-leap by a slinger's stone. Mark was fumbling for his last arrow as the furred body rolled on its back with legs in the air, claws in reflex convul- sions taloning the air above its belly.

But they were charg- ing out of cover now, running between and around the houses closest to the riverbank. A half-dozen howling, weapon-waving men were rushing hard toward the Elder's front yard, where the victims of their volley had just fallen. Two large warbeasts sprang out of concealment just after the attacking men, but bounded easily ahead of them. One beast was orange-furred and one brindled, and both of their bodies, like those of fighting men, were partially clothed in mail. They were nearly as graceful as the cats from which half their ancestry derived.

Most of the crowd looked like folk of this village, as was only natural- the story had said that all the dead men were from here, as was Jord. Mala could recognize some of the faces in the crowd, from her earlier visits here to meet Jord and his kinfolk. But most of the people were unknown to her, and a few of them were dressed outlandishly, as if they might have come from far away. Still standing near the doorway, looking over shoul- ders and between shifting bodies, Mala breathed a prayer of thanksgiving to Ardneh for Jord's survival; and yet, even as she prayed, she felt a new pang of inner anguish.
