Overview

One last mission. One mysterious passenger. One baffling destination. After centuries of travel, an ancient log buoy finally reaches human-controlled space. In the midst of a stalemated interstellar war, the Admiralty has little interest in wasting resources on what would likely be a fruitless search for the truth, but someone was able to convince them they could afford to send an old, obsolete frigate soon destined for the scrapyard, on this quest. Pulled from her patrol route, Siobhan Dunmoore is ordered to take an envoy aboard Stingray and sail into a poorly charted and virtually unexplored region of the galaxy hidden behind interstellar dust clouds. Along the way, she'll come to the attention of an old enemy, now also relegated to the fringes of the war, turning a voyage of discovery into a race against time and against each other. Though her troubles quickly multiply, Dunmoore has faced worse odds. She's determined to bring Stingray home with its honor intact, and few are brave enough to bet against her, not even their old Shrehari foes.

About the Author

Eric Thomson is the pen name of a retired Canadian soldier with thirty-one years of service, both in the Regular Army and the Army Reserve.  He spent his Regular Army career in the Infantry and his Reserve service in the Armoured Corps.  He worked as an Information Technology specialist before retiring to write full time.

Eric has been a voracious reader of science-fiction, military fiction and history all his life. Several years ago, he put fingers to keyboard and started writing his own military sci-fi, with a definite space opera slant, using many of his own experiences as a soldier as an inspiration for his stories and characters. 

When he's not writing fiction, Eric indulges in his other passions: photography, hiking and scuba diving, all of which he shares with his wife.

Following the "space-fareing" adventures of Eric Thomson's sci-fi warship commander is just plain fun reading. It's all there: action, adventure, suspense, gripping battle narratives, interesting characters with realistic traits, high technology--even philosophy and literary allusion to the western classics-- and above all the grandeur of interstellar space. For me, the true test of quality is met with how Thomson's yarns linger in the mind afterwards. You feel good about the time you spend with his creations.

This series reminds me of the Honor Harrington series by David Weber. Great characters, lots of action and an enjoyable story!

Superb space adventure with a strong female commanding officer . Believable combat and tactical planning and executable commands. The use of the enemy of my enemy is a friend was a great twist.
