In the fight to save her family, her greatest enemy may be herself.

Marta has just started her retirement from the EMEF when two of her children find themselves entered in a robot fighting championship without a driver! Instead of a quiet retirement, she finds herself neck-deep in political intrigue and a brewing invasion by unknown alien forces, nothing she can't handle!
Marta is the eleventh book in Frank Carey's Heroes of the League series. 148 pages/60,700 words.
