Empires at War is the sixth novel in the epic ‘Mercenaries’ series that chronicles the violent struggles of humanity in a brutal and ever-changing galaxy.
The fighting at Karnak might be over, but the war has only just begun. Spartan and his best warriors return home victorious, only to find themselves trapped behind enemy lines while the enemy mobilises every ship for war. Outnumbered and outgunned, it falls to Spartan to lead them in an unconventional battle to turn the tide. As Spartan and his legions fight for their very survival they learn that their hated enemy Tahkeome is on the move. Spartan is trapped, yet the enemy sends vast armadas to the border of the Alliance. There will be no invasion, only a single cataclysmic naval engagement that will decide the fate of billions.
Spartan and his best warriors must get back to help, but first they have their own problems. The Alliance mobilises every ship it can find, and the greatest military commanders of their age rally to Helios Prime for what will be the deciding battle. Yet none of them are prepared for what is to come.
