From back cover: Armed for justice, trained to kill- they are the best of the best. Star Commandos. A military elite, forged in a galactic conflict. War's end marks the beginning of their mission: to protect human colonies from the blood-drenched clutches of post-war scavengers.
The peaceful self-sufficient people of Tambora ofPele seem an unlikely target for Admiral Von Tarl Sogan's hatred and anger. A turquoise-hued paradise world on the fringes of the universe, Tambora is light years away from other systems ravaged by the great intergalactic war.
But beneath Tambora's beauty lurks a terrible peril. A radical sect secretly arms itself, designing a deadly strategy for civil war. Far below the planet's oceans, an even mightier force rumbles and threatens to smother all life forms in a fiery shower of ash and molten rock. Only the Star Commandos can rescue Tambora from certain disaster-- but are they too late?
