Contains Raj Whitehall series opening novels The Forge and The Hammer together in one volume. 

Raj Whitehall was a young noble of the Civil Government, the last remnant of galactic civilization on the planet Bellevue, when he came across an ancient but still functioning Fleet Battle Computer named Center. With Center's vast fund of knowledge and strategic calculating abilities, Raj could defeat the barbarians threatening to engulf the Civil Government, and start Bellevue on the road back to the stars. But the Governor, to whom Raj has sworn absolute loyalty, nourishes a paranoid envy and mistrust that grows with every victory. Can even a battle computer of the Galactic Age be enough to counter the fury of Raj's enemies . . . and the treachery of his "friends"?

A young hero overcomes implacable foes to lead a planet fallen into a dark age back to the high point of its lost technological civilization.

About Hope Reborn :
"The various battles and intrigues--all of them very clever and some of them very unexpected--make up the core of these extremely well-written and unabashedly fun books. And really, the action never stops. I highly recommend them to you as they've come out in a tasty trade format that's very easy to hold and lug around (they are, in other words, backpackable)."-- Amazing Stories
