The Ghost Brigades are the Special Forces of the Colonial Defense Forces,
elite troops created from the DNA of the dead and turned into the perfect
soldiers for the CDF's toughest operations. They’re young, they’re fast and
strong, and they’re totally without normal human qualms.
The universe is a dangerous place for humanity—and it's about to become far
more dangerous. Three races that humans have clashed with before have allied
to halt our expansion into space. Their linchpin: the turncoat military
scientist Charles Boutin, who knows the CDF’s biggest military secrets. To
prevail, the CDF must find out why Boutin did what he did.
