The competition between the Federal Space Independent Colonies (FSIC) and the United Democratic Space Colonies (UDSC) over control of the solar system is fierce. However, Covington Fellowship winner Hunter Blake is oblivious to the goings-on as he sees the scholarship providing him an easy ride to the top of society. His girlfriend Tehani Wilawa pays off her deceased father¿s enormous debt by earning her living hooking at the popular Sybaris pleasure palace. Even with her financial problems, Tehani enjoys the indulgences of the privileged.

Because of the dispute between the FSIC and UDSC, pirates have begun to successfully roam space. One such band abducts Hunter and Tehani. Soon the duo begins to question their lifestyle. Is this the case of a taste of true freedom not all it is cracked up to be or just the Stockholm Effect?

THE TRANQUILITY WARS is a coming of age science fiction novel that pulls the rug out from underneath the reader, helps the fan back up, and re-pulls the rug again reminiscent of Lucy and the football. The story line is entertaining, but action aficionados need to understand that the war is tranquil on this novel. The brilliant Hunter is the star of the tale, but in spite of his obvious superior intellect, he is one dumb stud when it comes to females and clearly no Buck Rogers. Gentry Lee provides an intriguing comparative social systems tale of competing ways of life in the twenty-fifth century.
