Argent Aquilus, the best mercenary pilot in the system, is always searching for the next score. Argent’s ship, the Menagerie, houses a wild crew of an assassin, a zealot, a telepath, a shapeshifter, and a sentient droid. They scrape out a living while avoiding the watchful eye of the Triastram Planetary Council, led by Argent’s brother Preus, and other shady authorities.
Anxious for the next payday, Argent takes a job from an unknown client for a secret payload. When the crew discovers their prize is an illegal world-killing fusion-charge and their customer a known terrorist, they deliver the cargo to save their lives and avoid prison, like any good mercenaries.
Argent and his crew undergo self-examination and coercion after some powerful “friends” capture them and offer a chance to defuse some evil plans and avoid death in the mines of Monger. Their success hinges on a reconciliation of family tensions while rebuilding trust with those on the other side of the law and defeating the system’s vilest terrorist.
