This is book one of the Tyches origins series and Nate’s story. Nate is captain of the emperors black, and is responsible for keeping the emperor safe. With the black tasked to stand down, as far as Nate is concerned his job is to protect the emperor with his life. Not my usual but an interesting series all the same. Enjoy.

Finding Each Other
I had read Tyche’s Chosen, Hope, Fury & Grace as ARC’s first and really bonded with Captain Nathan/Nate and the crew and I wanted to learn about Nathan and what made him tick so I went bought Tyche’s First to find out his story.
Nate was always a protector it’s how he’s wired. When the family he gave everything to including bits of himself was lost to him he went out to find another family to protect, he just needed a home. When Nate and Tyche met it was like a home coming to both. Nate had found a home capable of protecting those he loved and the ship had found a family worthy of it’s protection.
In Tyche’s First you get begin to see the connection that the ship and Nate share with each other as they go out looking for those in need of a family to fill it and make it a formidable weapon.
It’s a quick read with loads of wise cracks and in true Richard Parry fashion lots of explosions and body parts a great story to get you on board with this unique crew.
