Auberon: The Jessica Keller Chronicles, Book 1 (Unabridged)
Jessica Keller has a reputation as a maverick commander. It almost got her court martialed. Now, it has gotten her a new command in an obscure sector, with orders to ignite a new front in the eternal war.
But her old nemesis, Imperial Admiral Emmerich Wachturm, stands in her way.
Worlds will fall before their feud ends, but only if she can forge her crew of strangers into a weapon. Otherwise, disaster looms.
