Richard is only in his junior year at the Academy, but it may well be his last. The war with the bat-like Crosioians is straining the resources of the Intergalactic Empire to the breaking point. Every soldier is needed on the front lines to stave off the Empire's destruction. Not to mention politicians are eyeing the Academy as a financial drain that can no longer be justified. To top things off, teams of spell-wielding magic users have been spotted reconnoitering near the Academy. What does it all mean?
Between the Crosioians, politicians, and magic users, Richard and his friends are being assaulted from every side. The fate of the Academy, and indeed the entire Empire, may well lie in their hands. Outnumbered and outgunned, what can mere cadets do? But they're wizard scout cadets, and it'll be a cold day on Sirius when they'll let anyone threaten their Academy without a fight.
Join Richard and his friends as they stare near-certain defeat in the face. Will their wizard scout training be enough? Not even the best calculations of the battle computer, Nickelo, can tell for sure. But one thing's for certain, the Crosioians picked the wrong cadets to mess with.

Could be so much better
Let me first say that I love the world or at least the parts explored so far. The plot is OK but the storytelling is mediocre. Repetitive sequences and not to mention paragraphs with the exact same text. By this book I know sealing the suit inserts tubes and needles please stop regurgitating it. That is only one example, but there are many more.
The "dialogue" between the battle computer "Nic" and the protagonist is also not funny or entertaining.
Get some more help and clean this up...can be so much better

Slow and confusing
This series should not be taken out of order. Each sequel builds upon things listed in previous books. Information about 'The One' is scattered through book. This makes trying to figure him out confusing. This novel tends to have mini stories going on at the same time. This also makes keeping things straight. Just when boredom and the urge to skip ahead sets in, action starts. Some things get repeated often while others are glossed over and dropped. I have a few questions from previous books that don't get answered in this one. Also there is some contradictions compared to previous books. I can think of a few examples but don't want to be a plot spoiler. Guy Williams does a good job with this series.
