Powers! Politics! Pirates! Ben Stone just wanted to get rich…
Three years after Alice Keller is safely hidden away on Tarsus Station, Andre Korsakov is being pressured to weaponize her psychokinetic powers. But at seventeen, Alice is more concerned with boys and belonging than controlling objects with her mind.
In the Sirius star system, newly minted Captain Ben Stone and his Drop Marines reclaim Canis III, abandoned half a century earlier after the Specter War. Recolonizing the planet will set the political stage for launching President Piers Bragg’s new war with the Arcœnum. But sabotage in the camp murders Marines, and a deadly game of cat-and-mouse ignites planetside.
Meanwhile, Communications Director Eva Park has spent the last three years of the Bragg Administration yanking the president’s fat from more fires than she can count. When pirates steal materiel vital to Bragg’s war plans, Eva’s sent to parlay for their safe return—and comes face to face with a choice of destinies…
War is coming. And no one is prepared for the cost … to themselves, or to mankind.
