Operation Audacity, by Blaine Lee Pardoe, is the final novel about Archer Christifori's experiences during the Federated Commonwealth Civil War. It details how Victor Steiner-Davion and Katherine Steiner-Davion, archrivals in the FedCom Civil War, respond to the sudden Jade Falcon incursion into Lyran space.

From the back cover[edit]

The Civil War rages on, with deposed Prince Victor Steiner-Davion's forces bloodied from the recent defeats inflicted by his sister, Katrina. Worse still, Clan Jade Falcon has seized the opportunity to launch a determined offensive into the Lyran Alliance, destroying forces on both sides of the conflict.

But Prince Victor has formed a daring plan of his own—hold the Falcons in check on the worlds they have already conquered and unleash a massive force under Major General Archer Christifori deep inside Clan space with the mission to cut the Falcon offensive off at its core.

To succeed, Victor and Archer must convince one of Katrina's most loyal warriors—Leftenant General Adam Steiner—to join the fight. But how can either side trust the enemy they have sworn to kill?
