The Path of Duty
by Eric Thomson
War is filled with intrigue, treachery and dishonor, and that's just in Siobhan Dunmoore's Navy. Then there's the enemy to contend with as well, whether he be from the alien Shrehari Empire or from any number of pirate clans, human and non-human alike. Caught in the grip of a powerful cabal intent on changing the existing order, Dunmoore has to find the path to survival and take her ship home.
