Captain James Drake is desperate to clear his name. Pursued relentlessly by the Royal Navy, he takes his loyal crew to attack Admiral Malthorne's estate and seize the evidence that will prove his innocence.
But their search uncovers something else the ruthless admiral has secreted away - the key to stopping a brutal and decades-old war with the Hroom, an ancient alien race. What they find sends Drake on a dangerous mission deep into Hroom territory. Joined by his valiant crew and the daughter of a former rival captain, Drake risks his life and his freedom to stop the war and save what's left of his world.

Lots of action

Book one ended with Captain James Drake and crew on the way to attack Admiral Malthorne’s sugar plantation to look for evidence that will prove Drake innocence and find the antidote for the Hroom sugar addiction.

What they learn causes Drake and crew to join forces with the daughter of a former rival pirate captain. They go off on a mission into deep Hroom territory to try to stop a war. Wallace provides lots of action and space battles in this book, along with building suspense over Ajax.

What added some interest and humor to the story is the interaction between the regular navy personnel and the pirates that have been added to the crew of the Blackbeard. The book is easy to read, packed with action that moves at a very fast pace. Steve Barnes narrated the story. I am looking forward to more in this series.
