Final 3 volumes of the Dirigent Mercenary Corps Series (Sextet) - 6 3/4" H. 1. Major - 260 pp, 1999 2nd printing, ISBN 0441006809. "Lon Nolan has risen through the ranks of the DMC like none before him, consistently showing his courage under fire - and making his mark as a leader of men. Now, with a growing family of his own, Lon has begun to grasp the higher responsibility that comes with higher rank - and not all of it is welcome. But even as he begins to reconsider the path he has taken, duty calls once more. On a contract to the remote mining planet of Bancroft, a by-the-book training mission turns into a fight for survival when the outlying settlements are mercilessly raided by an unknown enemy. Lon and his men go into battle, only to find that the raiders are no mere bandits, but a well-trained force bent on completing their job - no matter who has to die." 2. Lieutenant Colonel - 279 pp, 2000 1st printing, ISBN 0441007228. "When duty calls, the newly appointed Lieutenant Colonel accepts the challenge. This time it's from the governor of a frontier mining planet. Their most vicious foe has returned, and Bancroft desperately needs the DMC's help once more. The Colonial Mining Cartel is raiding Bancroft for its precious minerals and only the practiced strategists and hardened soldiers of the DMC can stop them. Uniquely qualified for this special mission, Nolan will command the 2nd Battalion in a savage war to save what the Cartel hasn't already stolen. Facing the deadliest forces, it will take all of Lon's combat skills to lead his men to victory." 3. Colonel - 266 pp, 2000 1st printing, ISBN 0441007821. "With his son already part of the Corps and a new baby on the way, Nolan feels increasingly ready to distance himself from the world of battle and life-or-death decisions. But then he learns that the chancellor of Elysium, the university and research world, is coming to Dirigent. Elysium is being pressured by the Confederation of Human Worlds to 'acknowledge their sovereignty'. Part of that pressure comes via invading mercenaries from New Sparta - professional soldiers every bit as skilled and deadly as the DMC. Elysium wants the best on their side, and that means the Seventh Regiment. Retirement plans will have to wait, now that Nolan's leading his troops - his own son included - into the fight of a lifetime."
