preparations. Everything seems to be staged for a swift TSS victory over the
Bakzen as Wil assumes the position of TSS Supreme Commander with Saera and his
most trusted friends by his side.

crumble. The generations-old war began as a feud of races and ideals, but with
this fight, it's personal.

is the fifth installment in the Cadicle series. This character-driven novel
chronicles the decisive space battles to end the war with the Bakzen so a new
era for Tarans can begin.
“World Building At Its Best.”
the final war with the Bakzen at hand, Wil is promoted to Supreme Commander,
and he leads the TSS in a calculated battle with their enemy, an enemy not
truly an alien race. Wil is now aware that the Bakzen are clones of genetically
modified Tarans created by the Priesthood, and it’s really the Priesthood who
forced the clones out, making them enemies of those who created them. But the
hatred of the Bakzens, against their creators cannot be dismissed with less
than a war to destroy one or the other. But for Wil, this is something that
might destroy him as a person when he’s responsible for innumerable people
dying on worlds caught in the crossfire because of his actions. Can he live
with the knowledge that his power and leadership is the ultimate weapon that
will wipe out an entire race of people? Will he come out of this unscathed,
even if he survives the battles? And what of his friends, his parents, and his
wife, will they also be damaged by his actions?
the author gives the reader a well thought out novel of mysterious forces
moving people around a chessboard to reach a certain goal. It is world building
at its best. The writing is smooth, and fast, with realistic dialogue, and
memorable characters that you won’t soon forget. Highly recommended.
