Summary

Dr. David Greystone is excited for his team of scientists when they excavate an ancient treasure. This discovery should be the highlight of their careers. Instead, he soon realizes that he is running out of time to save the lives of his seven co-workers from a gruesome death. 
As a mortician, Sam Liaway spends her quiet, uneventful days with the dead. That is until she finds a mysterious coin sewn into the arm of Jason Greene, a recently deceased member of Greystone’s team. Kidnapped by an archeologist who claims he is saving her life, Sam discovers she is the victim of an ancient curse and the target of an angry preta. 
Chief of Police, Elaine Cross must choose between her responsibilities to the law and her heart. 
In a race against time, David and Sam struggle to collect the missing artifacts, save the lives of the remaining scientists, and find the secret to defeating this creature and breaking an ancient curse.

    Every Marine has a story about someone he couldn’t save, a face that would haunt him forever. When Command Sergeant Hal Tarra, one of Decker’s oldest friends, vanishes on the Commonwealth frontier shortly after taking early retirement from the Corps, Zack knows what memories are driving the former Pathfinder, because he sees the same face in his worst nightmares. Naval intelligence isn’t interested in resurrecting ancient history, especially the tale of a failed rescue after it had been consigned to the memory hole. So Decker does the only thing he can, out of friendship and loyalty, and the hope that he might finally redeem the one they’d thought lost long ago: he orders himself on an unsanctioned mission, beyond Fleet support, risking everything for a friend. His intelligence colleagues never could understand the Marine promise, “No One Left Behind” but as he keeps reminding them, he's still one of the Few…

After Jack rescued him from a crash, the K’da warrior, who must have a host to survive, took residence on his back as a biomorphic tattoo, in return protecting the boy from harm. While Jack tries to clear his own name of a crime he didn’t commit, he also helps Draycos uncover a conspiracy to destroy his race.   After narrowly escaping service with a band of mercs, Jack and Draycos know that whoever wants the K’da dead was involved with a Brummga alien—brutish beings known to be tough as nails . . . and dumb as rocks.   To get more information, Jack’s “sold” into slavery on a rich Brummga estate, where he has to find out all he can from the computer system while under the cruel watch of a vicious slave master who has no problem killing the help.   It’s not going to be easy.
