Broken Glass is the first book in the Glass Complex trilogy.
Steg de Coeur, his family murdered to further an armed takeover of Homeworld by the House of Aluta, flees to space just ahead of corporate mercenaries. Duels, deaths, enlistment in Imperial Special Forces, and exploration of ancient portals drives the tension. The pace is rapid with well developed and solid characters.
