    Hiding from his violent history as a revered Void necromancer within the Sparnell Confederation, single father Shane Lawrence has finally built a quiet life. On the freehold planet of Baden he can pour his energy into the only thing that now matters: the safety and upbringing of his precocious son, Jake.
      All too soon, the Confederation targets Baden for annexation, confronting Shane once more with his treasonous past. Worse, the invading force is led by none other than Shane's manipulative former mentor, Admiral Kydell.
      Shane's every instinct screams to run, to hide Jake even further from Sparnell – but Baden is home. This time he could choose to make a stand and defend the entire planet, not just his son. But that means turning to the very skills he swore he'd leave behind…
     
    Now tasked with the safety of the Turncoat Armada and its crew, Shane Lawrence and his allies set forth to find a refuge for the emotionally battered military fleet. The uninhabited TR-75 seemingly holds all the answers – a highly habitable planet in a prime location, nice in-system asteroids with plenty of resources, a healthy star, and pretty much everything else required to set up a thriving civilization.
      But there's a catch. The planet has already been claimed by herself. "Janikk" whispers her name on the winds, and the seemingly sentient planet has stirred up the native wildlife to decimate all past expeditions with vengeful distrust. Resolving to succeed where others have failed, Shane leads his team with a different priority, one focused on respect for the ancient spirit said to haunt the coveted world.
      But are they prepared to face the ghosts of their own pasts?
