Description

Growing up Travis Uriah Long yearned for order and discipline in his life - the two things his neglectful mother couldn’t or wouldn’t provide.

So when Travis enlisted in the Royal Manticoran Navy, he thought he d finally found the structure he’d always wanted so desperately.

But life in the RMN isn’t exactly what he expected. Boot camp is rough and frustrating; his first ship assignment lax and disorderly; and with the Star Kingdom of Manticore still recovering from a devastating plague, the Navy is on the edge of budgetary extinction.

The Star Kingdom is a minor nation among the worlds of the Diaspora, its closest neighbors weeks or months away, with little in the way of resources.

With only modest interstellar trade, no foreign contacts to speak of, a plague-ravaged economy to rebuild, and no enemies looming at the hyper limit, there are factions in Parliament who want nothing more than to scrap the Navy and shift its resources and manpower elsewhere.

But those factions are mistaken.

Events are in motion that will prove that the universe is not a safe place.Manticore may not be as isolated as everyone thinks, and Travis Long is about to find that out.
