Tavi of Calderon, now captain of his own Legion, has been fighting a bitter war for two years. Then he discovers the invading Canim warriors are harbingers of a far greater threat.
The Canim are being hunted in their turn by a savage race that forced them from their homeland - and which has pursued them to the Aleran borders. With options fast running out, Tavi proposes an alliance with the Canim. But the Senate's new military commander wishes only to wipe out the Canim 'scourge', and would also kill Aleran slaves that have sought freedom with these aggressors.
Tavi must reconcile Aleran and Canim, slavemaster and slave, Citizen and Proletarian, if an alliance is to be forced. And he must lead his Legion in defiance of the law, against both friend and enemy - before the greatest army of all launches its assault.

Thank goodness the horns have stopped! (apart from at the beginning)
Having read the dresden files I was initially disappointed but have persevered and think this is the best one so far.
Initially I found the narrator irritating at times, over the top dramatic but she has grown on me!
I think the female/male relationships are a bit Mills & Boonish but the story lines although often predictable have some interesting twists & turns. It's a comfortable listen, a bit like putting on your favourite slippers.
