The first mission of Ranger’s new secret life is to infiltrate a virtual reality Hive on Tarsus Station in order to eliminate any and all Chromes as well as those assisting them. Before Ranger can finish the job, he learns something surprising about himself.
Never create a killing machine you can’t control.
A space-operatic-love-triangle between a human killing machine, a woman bearing the genetic cancer he’s conditioned to exterminate, and the AI designed to keep him accountable, Ranger’s War rips through episode after episode of tense and atmospheric adventure.
Humanity has evolved, but at what cost? Obsessed with the quest for immortality, the advanced human race known as Hibernarii have become plagued by a subversive strain of ancestral human clones that threaten to unravel their fractured empire and decadent lifestyle.
In a desperate attempt to restore balance, the Hibernarii create an enslaved race of assassins. Equipped with fission reactor hearts, inexhaustible killing capabilities, and a supposedly foolproof kill switch, the Templar are unleashed. After 300 years of constant slaughter, Templar Ranger 878 emerges as the epitome of the program—ruthless yet creative. But when Ranger loses a fateful battle on the obscure hibernaculated culture of Sizlack Prime, his world descends into chaos. Forced to partner with smugglers, Ranger must reconcile his violent past with his emerging future to save the Hiberverse.
