Dagger Point, by Thomas S. Gressman, is a story of the Capellan-St. Ives War from the point-of-view of reluctant "peace-keepers", the famed Eridani Light Horse.

The novel was made available on BattleCorps on 12 January 2011 as a PDF file (text only, without cover, pictures, or any other interior artwork except for the usual BattleCorps frame graphics). The PDF copy includes a disclaimer stating that it was created from a pre-final edition text that might differ from the printed version and that canon-wise, the print edition trumps the PDF edition.

From the back coverEdit

Edwin Amis, new commander of the Eridani Light Horse, faces a tough decision: Should he openly defy the First Lord of the Star League? Sun-Tzu Liao, the First Lord, has sent Star League troops as "peace-keepers" to the St. Ives Compact to prevent open rebellion by angry citizens—but they're not seeking peace.

Amis knows the mission is only a guise for reclaiming territory for the Capellan Confederation, and he's ready to station counter-forces on Milos, close to the heart of the Capellan capital. But on Milos, things are already escalating—Death Commando Chen Shao and his ruthless partner, Nessa Ament, have secretly murdered a dissident's family in cold blood. Now, in what could erupt into full-scale war, both forces are at each other's throats...
