Publisher's Summary

For Lieutenant Alexis Carew, it should be the perfect assignment - a command of her own and a chance to return to her home star system.
What she finds is a surly crew, the dregs of every frigate and ship of the line to pass through on the way to the war's front, a first officer who thinks the command should have been his, and colonial worlds where they believe a girl's place is somewhere very different than command of a Queen's starship. Add to that the mysterious disappearances of ships vital to the war effort and an old enemy who seems intent on convincing her he's changed.
Then there's the mongoose with an unnatural affinity for her boots.

great story!

I am really enjoying the series, and am looking forward to the next installment. The author has managed to mix historical sailing ship warfare with a space yarn and a current understanding of the trials and tribulations a warrior faces after battle. H e also has created a strong female lead with out diminishing the male characters around her. For that, most of all, I say thank you....

Excellent again!

Any additional comments?

Book four of this series is again excellent. In this book, Alexis Carew is in command of her own ship. Of course, she has been taken command before, in combat. This time, she was given command. Her crew was not what she is use to. She has to work hard to gain their loyalty, while accomplishing her mission. Alexis Carew is my hero!
