The five young dragons are destined to end the war that's been raging between the tribes of Pyrrhia, but how they'll do this, none of them knows. But not every dragonet wants a destiny.

Transgalactic: Empire of the Atom / The Wizard of Linn / Mission to the Stars (alternate title: The Mixed Men)
Plus two short stories of the Ezwal, 'Co-operate or Else!' and 'The Second Solution', in the War Against the Rull series.

Empire of the Atom and The Wizard of Linn: According to the legends, global war smashed civilization, but not all of its machines. There are those who know how to repair and operate the ancient machines, but no one understands how they work - until Clane. Born into the ruling family, although his body is twisted, his mind is brilliant. He recovers the lost science behind the ancient machines - and uncovers the truth about civilization's downfall. Alien invaders reduced humanity to barbarism, as a prelude to returning in force to colonize the Solar System. And that return will happen soon, unless Clane can find a way to stop it.

Mission to the Stars: A starship is sent from Earth to the Greater Magellanic Cloud on a mission to locate refugees who fled there generations ago, and bring them back under Earth's control.
