    As penance for not being honest with his admiral, Captain Tanner Scott has been sent on a boring routine maintenance mission of checking the RIM boundary buoys one after another, and that lets him enjoy his Scotch in peace. Imagine his surprise when a Sleeper ship suddenly arrives on the RIM, and he learns that the thousands of alien Sleepers are all children! While making that known has already gotten RIM confederacy realms fighting, the real hidden problem is the secret that a virus infects the alien Sleepers.

    A mix of video game and book cliches

    Original concepts. This book copies several other stories' and video games' concepts and even names of technologies.

    After a failed planetary rebellion, the rebel leader and his men are all given life sentences on Halberd, the RIM Confederacy prison planet and sent to the maximum island penitentiary - a prison that has never had a successful escape. And under his admiral's orders, Captain Tanner Scott has also been sent to do RIM Navy duty on the planet with the mission to give up his alcohol dependency. While he knows that this is what is expected of him by the admiral, he finds it more difficult to do that he'd ever imagined.

    Taking on a new captaincy with the barony means that our captain Scott can now live a life of ease. His drinking will be tolerated, his hangovers ignored, and he will be in charge of the newest, fastest Supra Destroyer in the RIM Confederacy. Life is good for Tanner, who enjoys his new ship and the favors of the Lady St. August, yet the PTSD he still suffers from the thwarted prison escape on Halberd still haunts him. He copes but needs support from loyal friends, and that keeps him going.

    Great Continuation to the Series

Captain Tanner Scott is sent on the diplomatic mission to get the Enkians to reconsider. He and the Atlas crew help the new ambassador to find a way to bring the Enki into the RIM Confederacy without exposing to them the secret of why that is so important.

In doing so, he learns about the real truth behind the refugees and why they are fleeing something that appears to be coming to the RIM, invaders!

    bad narrative

    the reading was brutal. mistakes abound and a dull mono tone voice makes you grimace at time. the story itself will get you through

    Jilted by his Royal fiancee, captain Tanner Scott is assigned to Eons and the newly constructed RIM Naval Academy buildings, and the duty is anything but a reward. His days are full of squabbling university professors and construction types all nitpicking for changes to plans and additions and extra and the boredom of detail is a horrible side-effect.

    Infighting among the top two trader planets means more than higher prices and tariff surcharges for the planets on the RIM. In fact, the two are so much at war over those tariffs that they give ultimatums to the Confederacy Council that either they intervene, or they leave the RIM. Led by the Baroness who really has another goal in mind, the Barony offers up its own instant FTL drive to all RIM only member and that means that the trader planets have a choice to make.

    Good narrator

    Yes. It had some interesting concepts.
