The Scourwind family legacy brought the empire to the height of its power and prosperity and defended it against all enemies. Now one man´s machinations aim to shift the balance of power - with violent and devastating consequences. When the trusted General Corian launches a coup against Emperor Scourwind, he hurls the planetary kingdom into chaos. To secure his claim as ruler, Corian will need the strength of the Scourwind name behind him, and he will stop at nothing to bring under his grasp the young Scourwind heirs, twins Lydia and Brennan. Barely into adulthood, the two are thrust into the crossfire. Battling new obstacles at every turn, they eventually find refuge with Mira Delsol, pirate and former member of the elite empire forces. As the stakes rise, loyalists, mercenaries, and political opportunists rally around the heirs in a desperate bid to unseat the usurper. But if their risky gambit fails, will the empire crumble into oblivion? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Deric McNish. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/007372/bk_brll_007372_sample.mp3.

The United States military now considers cyberspace as the ´fifth domain´ of warfare (alongside land, air, sea and space). The Department of Defense, the NSA and CIA all field teams of hackers who can, and do, launch computer virus strikes against enemy targets. In fact, U.S. military hackers played a crucial role in the war in Iraq. Two successive presidents have called the Internet ´a strategic national asset´, and as such are committed to defending it - even to the extent of trying to acquire the power to turn off the internet in the face of a major attack. The resulting global struggle to control cyberspace is defining Western security policy in the 21st Century, just as the nuclear arms race did in the 20th. Recent revelations from Edward Snowden, Wikileaks and others have shown the extent to which national governments are using the internet to collect vast amount of information about their citizens, but, as @War will show, this is only the tip of the iceberg. The internet is now integral to controlling our banks, railways, airspace, hospitals and nuclear reactors. It is also the place where modern warfare, terrorism and espionage are being played out. As western governments, and the US in particular, seek to police the internet and fight their enemies on-line, where does that leave us? @War reveals a hidden war that is going on all around us - a war where our privacy, liberties and security risk being caught in the crossfire.
