Tulo, who helped command the failed Posleen invasion of Earth, expects annihilation at the hands of the vengeful humans, but another faction rescues Tulo and his followers. They embark upon a search for the origin of their species and discover just how cruelly their people were treated long ago when their ancestors dared to question the godlike Aldenata.
Following their trail is a sentient warship bearing a contingent of human religious scholars, Swiss Guards and a most unusual trio of captive Posleen. Ringo and Kratman turn this space adventure into an intriguing discussion of the power of faith apart from the existence of God.

When John Ringo originally started writing the Legacy of the Aldenata, he was trying to create a somewhat more realistic interstellar warfare scenario than the typical space opera. He wanted a race of aliens that would be able to seize Earth, but not necessarily be able to hold it, so that he would be able to write both space battles and ground-pounding action involving familiar locales. However, as many other authors have discovered before him, it was a tale that grew in the telling. Part of it was simply its success -- the first two books of what was originally planned as a trilogy were selling so well that Ringo was rapidly becoming one of Baen's leading authors, which meant that Baen was going to want a lot more material to keep the trend going. Needless to say, the author was left so infuriated that he was literally unable to write fiction. In both cases it eventually passed, but until it did, I literally could not bring myself to write fiction.
It is set after the defeat of the Posleen on Earth, and follows the struggle of that race to survive. Roland Green of Booklist praised the battle descriptions  and Publishers Weekly called the book "an intriguing discussion of the power of faith". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
