Publisher's Summary

Scholarship student Thracius "Tracy" Belmanor and Princess Mercedes de Arango have graduated from the High Ground and become officers in the Orden de la Estrella. Stung by Mercedes' choice of Beauregard “Boho” Cullen as her consort, Tracy is glad they are posted on battleships light years apart but soon finds that without her protection, he is nothing but a target. 

Meanwhile, Mercedes' posting has its own challenges, not least her unfaithful husband.  

Both young officers find themselves part of forced "assimilations" of settlers on Hidden Worlds that lead them to doubt the intentions of the Solar League. And when Tracy witnesses a horrific event that threatens the fragile human and alien peace, Mercedes must decide where her loyalties truly lie....

Excellent Second Book of Series

This book starts at graduation from the High Ground Academy. The story examines the moral ambiguity of allowing a mass murder of children to be "ignored" in the interest of preventing an inter-species war. Mercedes is slowly losing her soul as she grows into the role of Le Infanta and Tracy, stubborn and priggish, suffers dearly for his principles. The book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger promising much more to come. Can hardly wait.
