Synopsis: A true Campbellian science fiction adventure in the vein of Starship Troopers. This first volume in the Nexus Arcana Sci Fi epic combines elements of space opera with hard SF to forge an exciting tale of the future. A Solar System in turmoil. The mistakes and conflicts of the early twenty-first century peak in a clash of ideology and mechanized steel that spans across the planets of the inner sphere of Sol. A contention of worlds ensues as the Earth Federal Republic and Solar Empire battle for solar supremacy. On one side, caught within the currents of war, is a band of young spacemarines, the Sledgehammers, who quickly find themselves embroiled in a plot that transcends the politics of the struggle around them. A dark and ancient secret looms throughout Sol in a myriad of alien artifacts that are the intense focus of one man's mad ambition. On the other side, a revolutionary puts his own plan into motion as the would-be liberator of his people. Taking advantage of the conflagration, Alphonse Zhukov and his conspirators risk everything to free their proletarian brethren from the iron grip of the Solar Empire. Both sides quickly find themselves immersed in a storm of lies, betrayal, love, and romance as plans within plans and schemes within schemes forge their individual goals into a common cause. At the eye of the tempest is an alien warship that holds the key to finding the Goddess Device and unraveling the Stygian Conspiracy that surrounds it.

Kirkus Review
"As the book opens...tensions rise when Alphonse Zhukov...sends an alien spaceship...crashing to Earth. This event sets the stage for...rebellion against the Solar Empire and motivates a group of Federal Republic "spacemarines,"...to try to take down the UN once and for all. Gradually...both commanders become aware of the puppet masters influencing the course of the war. Okuda does a good job of connecting his story's many layers as they develop across the solar system-tying together the backroom political scheming on both sides of the war with intricate military strategy-leaving readers with a tale that has all the ingredients for a great sci-fi epic..."-June 29th 2011
