Publisher's Summary

Ensign Stone's goals were to make his way in the Empire's navy, make his family proud of him, and make love to his fiancée. No matter which way he turned, someone was conspiring against him. Disgraced and humiliated, he is court-martialed, discharged, and abandoned.

Accepting what he thinks is a lowly busy-work position on a beat up old family business space freighter travelling at the edge of human space, he hopes to earn back the trust and respect he lost. The Empire's political powers and his family have different goals. Stone faces humanity's enemies in a do-or-die operation.

It's Clobbering Time!

Trey Stone, relaxing and checking off items on his 'got done' list, has his world turned upside-down. He's arrested, PB and J are taken from his side and just when he thinks nothing else can go wrong, he finds out nearly every friend he had, has left or been forced out of the Navy and Marines. Cashiered, alone and dumped at a space port, Trey Stone's life has become the punch line of a 'things can't get any worse' joke.

The primary characters are maturing, secondary characters are fleshed out well, and the action keeps on rolling. The series is showing lots of legs and I can't wait for the next one

One of my favorite series

The metal boxes series is on of my favorite. This series is also what truly got me hooked on audiobooks. Between Doug Tisdale Jr. and his expert rendition, and Alan Black's writing, we have a truly great listen. I honestly still daydream about these characters, several years after listening, and re-listen periodically. Thank you Alan and Doug!
