DEATH AND NEW BEGINNINGS
Shuos Jedao is awake.
and nothing is as he remembers. In his mind he's a teenager, a cadeta nobody. But he finds himself in the body of an old man, a general controlling the elite forces of the hexarchate, and the most fearedand reviledman in the galaxy.
Jedao carries orders from Hexarch Nirai Kujen to re-conquer the fractured pieces of the hexarchate on his behalf. But he has no memory of ever being a soldier, let alone a general, and the Kel soldiers under his command hate him for a massacre he can't remember committing.
Kujen's friendliness can't hide the fact that he's a tyrant. And what's worse, Jedao and Kujen are being hunted by an enemy who knows more about Jedao and his crimes than he does himself...
