The old Empire is dead. In a far distant corner of the galaxy, a small remnant remains. They’re doing okay, slowly building up, but they are only a shadow of their former selves.
Jared joined the navy to make something to himself. He had no idea that he was the illegitimate son of the Emperor, but the required genetic test proved that was the case. Now, instead of concentrating on being a good officer, he has to deal with palace politics. It has also slowed his career, because no one wants to show him favoritism.
Kelsey, Princess of the Empire, has been shut in the palace all of her life. Anxious to do something useful, she signs on to be a diplomatic aid on an exploration mission. The mission leader is her half-brother Jared. Awkward, doesn’t begin to cover it.
The royal bastard and royal scion will have to learn to work together, because their mission is about to get complicated. An unstable wormhole will strand them many light years from home, and new enemies will be found. They will have to rely on each other if they are to have any chance at survival.
Terry Mixon weaves a tale of interstellar drama and danger. Engaging characters and complex relationships make this a story worth reading. A must for any sci fi enthusiast.
