Malicious Intent, by Michael A. Stackpole, covers the dramatic aftermath of the Refusal War and Clan Jade Falcon's assault on Coventry. The novel continues the plot from Bred for War and is the companion novel of I Am Jade Falcon.

The novel was made available on BattleCorps on 04 July 2010 as a PDF file (text only, without cover, pictures, or any other interior artwork except for the usual BattleCorps frame graphics). The PDF copy includes a disclaimer stating that it was created from a pre-final edition text that might differ from the printed version and that canon-wise, the print edition trumps the PDF edition.

From the back cover[edit]

In the wake of a civil war that nearly devastated the Jade Falcons and pushed his own Wolf Clan into nonexistence, Vlad of the Wards emerges harboring a powerful secret. He intends to use this secret to avenge the destruction of his Clan—and to reestablish the Wolves once again!

But the Jade Falcons have their own ambitious plans to stab deep into Katrina Steiner's Lyran Alliance. Katrina's only hope of stopping the Falcons is to enlist the aid of her brother and political rival, Victor Davion. He accepts, but it may be his downfall, for Katrina could have just the means to destroy him once and for all...
