Hollow Canyon: Young Peter stood alone at the mouth of Hollow Canyon ready to face his test of manhood. His older brother had failed two years ago and had died. Hollow Canyon doesn't permit failure. Recruit: J. Vance Hamblin was the youngest to make Admiral in Fleet history. He was the best of the best - until he became an 'insider' and was pushed aside to keep him out of the way. Now he has to decide if he's ever been fighting for the right side. Artisan: The Stranger's mission was to find and destroy the Artisan. He'd just missed him on several worlds which had been energy-siphoned to fuel the Artisan's growing need for power. The Stranger knew he was no longer a match for what the Artisan had become. Still he had to try. The survival of all Creation was at stake. --Provided by publisher.
