Humanity won its fight to survive, now it joins a war for freedom.
What if your only choice was annihilation, or assimilation? Untold riches and miracles for the price of your independence?
Victory comes at a heavy cost. Kaishi and the others are asked to be emissaries, to give their species up in allegiance to the galaxy's cold, ruthless rulers in exchange for their help protecting Earth. When the time comes to pay that debt, Kaishi must decide between honoring it, and betraying her soul to save her friends.
THE LAST CYCLE, the conclusion to THE SKYWARD SAGA, forces Kaishi and every civilization in the galaxy to define their own destinies, or die trying.
