In the last years of the crusade, Macharius comes to Loki. This heavily industrialised world is the bastion of the Lord of Solar’s Arch-Nemesis, the traitor Richter. Formerly one of the Marcharius’s trusted advisors, Richter’s betrayal is indicative of the low morale and dissent amongst the imperial forces. Brought to the edge of the known galaxy, thrust into a plague-ridden hell of trench warfare, Macharius faces his sternest test. As the conclusion of the crusade dawns, this could be an end to the imperium’s war and the final fall of Macharius. (Takakansiteksti)
William King's science fiction novel Fall of Macharius is an epic conclusion to The Macharian Crusade -trilogy.
