Newly promoted Commodore Horatio Logan had never expected to be commissioned as an officer, let alone survive to where he was now. But the Reborn Federation needed officers and engineers, needed them desperately so he'd stayed in and somehow he'd managed to thrive under the workload. He'd seen friends come and go. He had seen his daughter off on her own command. He wasn't content in his lot in life but he wasn't a complainer either. Like Fleet Admiral Irons, he buckled down and got things done. When the Light Cruiser Caroline returned with her payload of Bekian and Nuevo officers and delegates Horatio found himself opening up a new unexpected chapter in his life... a chapter that would forge a stronger relationship with the lost colonies with the fledgling Federation. But Bek has it's own issues, ones no one warned them about. Navigating the sudden minefield would take a deft hand... but Horatio hadn't survived as long as he had or come as far as he had to give up or go home with his tail between his legs. He would drag the lost colonies kicking and screaming into the present even if it killed him. … and it just might!

Horatio Logan goes to Bek, the isolated secret holdout of Admiral John Irons, a system hidden away from the rest of the sector. Things are not as they seem, political jockeying abounds, suspicions and deep-seated prejudices run deep. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, a nice getaway from the ever increasing complexity of the war between the Federation and the Horath Empire.
Can't wait for the next installment!
The Good News is, its fitting in the style of his writing the bad News is the ending of the book is not...... seriously a cliffhanger.... Come on dude.
So if you hate open endings dont buy it till he has written the next book FFS.
Btw i am still waiting on the next book of the prequel series i believe the titel was small steps or something
The book was my least favorite of their series. It was as if the author just filled most of this adventure with boring rewrites of past scenes. I was very disappointed in the ending also. When I finished I thought I just read hundreds of pages of filler. The last chapter should have been part of the beginning and led to what is probably the next book in the series.
