When Anelace is sent to investigate accidents plaguing mining operations in a remote star system, Captain Garrett Heskan suspects more than random mishaps are in play. As the mystery unfolds, the stakes turn deadly in a race to expose the true threat while protecting the civilians in the system. Heskan's first command could be his last, as Anelace is outnumbered in her fight for survival.
Lieutenant Heskan's escort destroyer, BRS Kite, must protect the carriers assigned to Lt. Commander Durmont’s squadron, but Kite is fresh from the yards and its revolutionary weapons system won’t stay online. What starts out as a simple Brevic attack into the Hollaran Commonwealth soon becomes a fight for survival in a series of battles that could alter the balance of power in the known universe.
Bitter rivals for over a century, the Brevic Republic and the Hollaran Commonwealth are at war. Now Lt. Commander Heskan’s escort ships must protect Komandor Lombardi’s heavy cruisers as they are forced to run together into unexplored space from a devastating, new threat. For the duration of the tenuous truce, there is a singular objective… make it home.
Garrett Heskan and his Brevic officers have rescued sixteen pilots from their own government. It was the first step in a bold plan to keep Heskan’s promise to Isabella Lombardi and her captured Hollaran crew. As Secretary Brewer and his Internal Security agents try to locate the escapees, Heskan plays a dangerous game from inside Brewer’s circle, attempting to move Lombardi closer to freedom.
Thrust into the fleet commander role and still learning the peculiar scriptures of corporate warfare, Heskan must work with AmyraCorp’s CEO to stay one step ahead of Sade and the treachery of Admiral Wallace. Can Heskan find a way to secure the future he promised his Brevic crew when they fled to this corner of the universe, or will his past be used against him to orchestrate Wallace’s victory?
