Last Measure of Devotion by Britt Ringel
Garrett Heskan means to make his home in Seshafi, far from his enemies and his past in the Brevic Republic. But the small system is under unprecedented attack from its neighbors in the Sade system, bent on absorbing Seshafi's ruling corporation into its own. Heskan led the Seshafian navy to a brutal victory, but one battle will not win this war.
Thrust into the fleet commander role and still learning the peculiar scriptures of corporate warfare, Heskan must work with AmyraCorp's CEO to stay one step ahead of Sade and the treachery of Admiral Wallace. The moves in this winner-take-all game of corporate takeover will see Heskan at The Courts of Nessus and on battlefields in both Sade and Seshafi. Can Heskan find a way to secure the future he promised his Brevic followers when they fled to this corner of the universe, or will Heskan's past be used against him to orchestrate Wallace's victory?
This is the fifth and final book in the This Corner of the Universe series, completing the story of Garrett Heskan and the original crew of Anelace.
