|'Legions of Fire':
'Armies of Light and Dark'
by Peter David
The Drakh have assaulted Earth with deadly Shadow technology – but the worst is yet to come in this stunning continuation of the Babylon 5 epic adventure…
Centauri Prime has been infiltrated by malevolent allies of the Shadows, creatures known as the Drakh. While the Centauri citizens continue to rebuild their war-torn planet, their secret masters work feverishly toward one ultimate goal: to crush the Interstellar Alliance once an for all.
As the Drakh carry out their horrific plans, Emperor Londo Mollari languishes on his throne, a puppet of the Drakh-bred keeper, an insidious creature that monitors his every thought, word, and action. While the emperor broods, the power-obsessed Lord Durla - an unwitting Drakh pawn – follows his own agenda.
But Drakh control is not absolute. Vir Cotto – a most unlikely hero – has begun a resistance movement, and Alliance President John Sheridan has sent his most trusted troubleshooter, Michael Garibaldi to investigate. Yet this move may prove costly, and though the Centauri continue to build a new military machine, the Alliance avoids any overt confrontation, hoping the problem will go way.
They’re about to discover how wrong they are…
