The Far Side of the Stars (Lt. Leary) - David Drake

While the Republic of Cinnabar is at peace with the Alliance, warriors like Lt. Daniel ... more

Leary and Signals Officer Adele Mundy must find
other work - like escorting a pair of wealthy
nobles on an expedition to the back of beyond! The
Princess Cecile, the corvette in which they carved
their reputations in letters of fire, has been
sold as a private yacht, but she still has her
guns, her missiles, and her veteran crew. Daniel
and Adele will need all of those things as they
face winged dragons, an Alliance auxiliary
cruiser, jealous lovers, and a mysterious oracle
which really does foresee the future. That won't
be enough, though, when they penetrate a secret
Alliance base and find a hostile fleet ready for a
war that will sweep Cinnabar out of a
strategically crucial arm of the galaxy.
Preventing that will involve skill, courage, and
more luck than a sane man could even pray for; and
it will require a space battle on a scale that a
tiny corvette like the Princess Cecile has no
business being involved in. But she'll be in the
middle of it anyway, because Daniel, Adele, and
their Cinnabar crew would never turn their backs
on a fight!

Take the Grand Tour to the far stars.

AdvantagesA very entertaining read.

DisadvantagesSome may find it racist. Will not have a wide appeal as its science fiction.
