This compendium edition contains the full text of the last three novels, Battle for Helios, Wrath of the Gods and The Black Rift.

Battle for Helios
For a thousand years the Helions have predicted the return of the Biomechs and their hordes, and for a thousand years they have done little to prepare. The Prophecy of Fire has spread like a disease through every world, infusing fear to civilian and soldier alike. The Khreenk and Byotai are no strangers to this, but will they choose to ally in the coming fight, or will they turn back to old rivalries and fears? The attack on Eos proved the Biomechs had returned, but it is their relentless advance into the heart of the Helios system that marks the first stage of the war. Comet C34 houses innumerable surprises, not least being the mighty invasion Arks hidden deep inside its core.

Wrath of the Gods
The opening battles of the bloodiest war in human history have been fought, and now the enemy spreads from world to world, exterminating all before them. This is no war for territory or resources, it is one of genocide. The valiant efforts of the Alliance, Helions, and Khreenk make the Biomechs pay a terrible price, yet still they continue onwards. Each of these massive assaults is being conducted from deep inside their fortified Arks, the command centers of the Biomech campaign. These vast behemoths combine the capabilities and firepower of battleships with the size and resources of entire space stations.

The Black Rift.
The Prophecy of Fire has revealed itself in the shape of the great machine enemy, the Biomechs. Their limitless numbers of ships, soldiers, and creatures are ready for the war to end wars. Each of them waits patiently for their chance to come through the unstable Black Rift under the command of their remarkable new ally. A glimpse of this world-ending force has already been seen, and it has led to a series of disasters on many worlds. Even the stalwart defenders of humanity begin to look inwards, and for a leader that can save them from the fury of the machines.
