Tayce Traun and her team are faced with ever more deadly quests in this third book of the Amalthean Quests series. They range the Universe, fighting evil and injustice, but can there ever be lasting peace while Count Varon Vargon lives? His shadow looms threateningly over Enlopedia and its sister Colony, Pellasum Traun 2, as he schemes to crush the Trauns. Tayce, commanding Auran Amalthea Three, sets out to intercept the combined forces of Count Vargon and the Witch Queen, Aemiliyana as they advance on Enlopedia. On board their immense battle-ready spacecraft, the Fortress, they are carrying a new game-changer - the Catronic weapon.
