Book #1 of the Wars of the New Humanity series
A young man and woman become entangled in a web of violent conflict, lies, and conspiracies.
They are lovers Randal Scott and Stacie Spencer, newly initiated Guardians of the Commonwealth Defense Force (CDF), and their drive for enlisting goes beyond service and duty to the New Humanity. It’s Personal.
Randy wants nothing more than to deliver retribution to the man who killed his mother and mentally scarred him forever. That man is his father, former CDF captain Arson Scott. After establishing a wonderful life for his family and nurturing Randy into manhood, Arson mysteriously joined the insurgency threatening to collapse humanity’s intergalactic republic and partook in his wife’s murder. Stacie seeks to forge a life free of her aristocratic parents’ control. She will shape her destiny, no one else.
Now Randy and Stacie, who are Linked (joined in mental communion), deploy to Colony Four, where Arson operates his insurgent faction. Alongside each other, they enter a bloody war that may have them questioning both of the combat forces in opposition, the CDF and the insurgency known as the Coalition of Rebel Factions.
