Acts of War: Flashpoint

By Aeryn Rudel

Lord General Coleman Stryker, one of the greatest heroes of the Iron Kingdoms, must liberate the conquered lands of Llael from Cygnar’s ancient enemy, the Empire of Khador. Stryker must work with one of his most bitter enemies—the exiled mercenary Asheth Magnus, a man to whom Cygnar’s king owes his life. Unchecked, Magnus could betray Stryker, undermine the mission, or even bring Cygnar to its knees. To claim victory for his king, Stryker must find a way to put his faith in a man he can’t trust.
