       Additional Information  
      In the first book of the OF HONOR AND TREASON series, Zsar't'lac, an alien warrior messiah, defects to the Klimar Empire, to stop an interstellar war. Eivaunee Dorlan, the richest man in three empires, helps him escape. Zsar't'lac takes service with Eivaunee on the flagship of the Klimar Empire. Eivaunee hopes the alien will help him keep the vast Dorlan estates from the half-mad Emperor's control. The alien warrior, though, has his own agenda.
    In OF DUTY AND DEATH, an assassin is sent out from the Norda Homelands to kill Zsar't'lac and blame it on the humans, provoking the war that Zsar't'lac is trying to stop. While the alien assassin is laying his trap, Eivaunee Dorlan is forced by the Emperor to destroy a city the Emperor has declared to be in rebellion, even though all the citizens wanted was justice and protection from their overlord's son, a violent and undisciplined lordling.
