The roots of the Legion of the Damned lie deep within the mythology of the future. But now, national bestselling author William C. Dietz goes back to the Legion’s early days with the story of one recruit’s rebirth and redemption...

Hundreds of years in the future, much has changed. Advances in medicine, technology, and science abound. Humanity has gone to the stars, found alien life, and established an empire.

But some things never change...

All her life, Lady Catherine Carletto (called Cat) has lived for nothing but the next party, the next lover, the next expensive toy. Until, in a bloodthirsty power grab, Imperial Princess Ophelia and her cadre of synth assassins murder her brother the emperor, and go on to purge the galaxy of his friends and supporters—including Cat’s family. The Carlettos are known to be staunch supporters of the Emperor and Carletto Industries has been in the forefront of his pet project—developing cybernetic technology for use by the masses.

Now Cat, one of the last surviving Carlettos, is on the run. And, like countless others before her, she finds her sanctuary among the most dangerous of society’s misfits.

Welcome to the Legion.

Cat Carletto vanishes, and in her place stands Legion recruit Andromeda McKee. A woman with a mission—to bring down Empress Ophelia—or die trying.

About the Author:

William C. Dietz is the bestselling author of more than thirty novels, some of which have been translated into German, Russian, and Japanese. He grew up in the Seattle area, served as a medic with the Navy and Marine Corps, graduated from the University of Washington, and has been employed as a surgical technician, college instructor, and television news writer, director, and producer. Prior to becoming a full-time writer, Dietz served as director of public relations and marketing for an international telephone company. He and his wife live near Gig Harbor, Washington.

From Booklist:

How does the author’s immensely popular Legion of the Damned recruit its desperate and deadly members? This novel provides some clues. Lady Catherine Carletto can only be described as a playgirl—until her brother is murdered by a particularly devious plot of the ruthless Imperial Princess Ophelia. Suddenly, Catherine is flung into the middle of her brother’s plots to overthrow the empire—but she has to stay alive first, before she can exact vengeance. So Lady Catherine vanishes, and the Legion of the Damned gains a new recruit—Andromeda McKee, like most of her new comrades a driven person with very little left to lose and no fear of consorting with the desperados who make up the ranks of the Legion. Space opera at a very high level, and not a bad place to make the acquaintance of the Legion. --Roland Green
