Nineteen-year-old Mairead Hawke knows nothing outside of the military. Raised on a militant starship and trained in the Lunar Fleet Academy, she is a pilot, savant, and distinguished soldier whose life has never seemed to belong to her.
A third-year computer science student at Corvalis University, Kole Zerik never foresaw himself leading a life of grand adventure, but upon meeting the new transfer student Mairead, Kole suddenly finds himself embroiled in high-stakes military affairs.
With the tension between the Lunar Fleet and the Earth Coalition Forces swelling and the promise of universal annihilation looming in the distance, Mairead and Kole team up to uncover unconscionable corruption masquerading as diplomacy.
As Mairead’s past starts to resurface, the horrible truth behind the years’-long war – and her existence – comes to light, setting into motion events that will shape the future of the world.
