|“||The world of Northwind has been decimated in the battle between the Highlanders and the Steel Wolves—and now the Clan warriors set their sights on Terra. The fate of the planet rests in the hands of three MechWarriors:
Ezekiel Crow—betrayer of the Highlanders—and on the run from both political and military enemies.
Anastasia Kerensky—ruthless ruler of the Steel Wolves—and if she has her way, the next Conqueror of Terra.
Tara Campbell—leader of the Northwind Highlanders—and Terra's only hope in its most desperate hour.
