At long last, peace emerges from the bitter war that ravaged the worlds of the Narvan. Anastassia Kazan brought about the end to the fighting between Vayen Ta’set’s homeworld of Artor and Artor’s rival, Jal. When she offers Vayen a job on her team of bodyguards, he leaps at the opportunity. He’ll do anything to keep Artor on the path to recovery.

Protecting the paranoid and mercurial woman whose deals and threats keep everyone in line is a tough, thankless task. One drunken night with Anastassia makes Vayen question why he got the job and whether he should keep it. But no one else on the team is willing to earn Anastassia’s disfavor by calling her out on her reckless choices. Reckless will get her killed and send the Narvan back into chaos.

Not everyone is happy with Anastassia’s changes on his homeworld and beyond. She’s also on less-than-friendly terms with her deadly ex-partner. Then Vayen discovers that Anastassia is only middle management. The Council she works for harbors ambitious plans for the Narvan’s military forces.

How much is Vayen willing to sacrifice to keep the Narvan at peace?

About the Author

Jean Davis lives in West Michigan with her musical husband, two nerdy teenagers, two attention-craving terriers and a small flock of chickens. When not ruining fictional lives from the comfort of her writing chair, she can be found devouring books and sushi, weeding her flower garden, or picking up hundreds of sticks while attempting to avoid the abundant snake population that also shares her yard. She writes an array of speculative fiction.

She is the author of several books including "A Broken Race," "Sahmara" and "The Last God." She released a collection of her own short fiction, titled "Destiny Pills and Space Wizards." As an author who's been both self-published and traditionally published, she appreciates the simple value of a rating and review to help promote the discoverability of great writing.
