    Nineteen-year-old Steve Maxwell just wants to get his feet on the star road to find a better homeworld. By facing down Lotus Tong thugs, he earns an opportunity to become an apprentice on a merchant spaceship, leaving the corruption and crime of Earth behind. Sure, he needs to prove himself to an older, tight-knit crew, but how bad can it be if he keeps his head down and the decks clean?

    Heading Out Into Space And Freedom

    Up there. I thought this was very easy to follow both on the writing and the narration side. Perfect for this format.

    Trapped in the Dragon Tong's search for a lost legend, Steve Maxwell finds a way out by enlisting in the Lancastrian Commonwealth Fleet. If he survives long enough to earn a commission, he'll be able to hunt down the pirates who killed his mentor. To get there, he'll have to slog through rain-swollen swamps, dodge incoming fire on a 'peacekeeping' mission, and face down a gang of angry smugglers. Even far away from enemies, a mistake can turn a spaceship into a deathtrap.

    Libertarians will especially like this series.

    Narrator does a good job. I was always eager to get back to the story.

    Assigned to investigate a deadly accident, Lieutenant Steve Maxwell uncovers corruption and criminal collusion reaching far above his pay grade. To save his career he's dispatched to a distant planet to help upgrade its defense forces, in the company of an old friend and some of the most experienced Marines Steve's ever met; plus one of the most distracting. Trouble is, the planet's antiquated defenses make its new-found wealth a very tempting target and there are those planning to take full advantage.

    An emergency recall to his ship short-circuits Senior Lieutenant Steve Maxwell's plan to get rid of a long-standing personal burden. Instead, he finds himself dumped into a war zone on a peacekeeping mission hundreds of light years away. He doesn't have enough people, equipment, or information. Left in the dark, he has to rely on uncertain allies with their own agenda. Even worse, it's not the Fleet's war, so he's not allowed to shoot back - much less shoot first. Neither side is observing civilized rules of engagement. The bodies are piling up.

Major Brooks Shelby must keep the peace, on a world where radical terrorists want submission or death.
