Publisher Description

A young ensign, recently graduated from the Northern Hemisphere Space Academy, is awakened abruptly in the middle of the night by alarms, flashing lights, and dire messages to abandon ship. The petite blonde pulls on some clothes and races through the spaceship in a desperate search for an available life pod-- but it appears all have already departed. 


So begins the epic story of Jenetta Carver. Get a tight grip on your book and prepare for an exciting adventure like few others because Jenetta is ready to take names and kick butts from one end of the galaxy to the other. She may be small, but she has an intellect as large as Colossus of Rhodes and makes General Sun-Tzu look like an amateur military enthusiast.

From the Back Cover:


For all of her young life, Jenetta Carver had dreamed of cruising between the stars in a powerful spaceship, but nothing in her visions of a bright future even remotely resembled the perilous situation she now faced.


Lt. Sabella, her face slightly flushed from physical exertion, returned from her task of readying the ship's weapons and crossed the bridge to stand by the left arm of Jenetta's command chair. "What's the plan, Captain?" she asked. Though an anxious look swathed her face, there was unmistakable resoluteness in her voice.


Jenetta breathed in deeply and then released it before answering in a voice lowered so that it only carried to her XO. "We're going to have to slash and burn," she replied.


"Slash and burn?" Gloria questioned, equally sotto voce.


"We don't yet know what we're facing, so we can't prepare anything tactically sophisticated. We certainly won't be able to arrange for a convenient artificial mountain as cover this time, and it's a given that whatever Raider ships we're about to face are considerably better armed than we are. So-- surprise will perforce serve as our main weapon. I intend to slash our way in with as much speed as practicable, dump our envelope, and then burn down any enemy ships that we encounter before they can do the same to us."


"That's it?" Gloria asked, wide-eyed. "That's your whole plan? Shoot them before they shoot us?"

Great read

Well written fast paced story in the style of Robert Heinlein's early
space adventures. Likable characters with extensive science and technology mixed in with excitement and adventure.

Made me Happy

An excellent beginning and primer to yet another scifi universe. Space, ships, guns, aliens, people. Good times.

Excellent read!

One of the best books I’ve read in a while. Just purchased the second book and can’t wait to see what happens next.
