In his Brother's Footsteps
Harley Rassor is a simple farm boy in a complex techno-universe--more than happy to work the land of planet Slewis with his father. His restless older brother left to join the elite mercenary corps, Able's Aces... and paid with his life. Now, Harley's father wants him to join the fight--and learn what happened to his brother.
What he learns is that the Aces are in turmoil. His instructor--tough-as-nails Lieutenant Livia Hawke--also happens to be his brother's ex-lover. Rumors of suspected payoffs and setups are commonplace. And the entire unit is in danger of being disbanded.
Then pirates launch a devastating raid on the Rim Collection's resources, sparking an all-out fight that will put the Aces in the thick of battle--and reveal to Harley that there are worse things in war the death...
