Descripción

Black Ops—the intelligence arm of the Meridian Alliance Fleet came calling with an offer Henricksen couldn't refuse: a ship—an entire squadron of ships, actually—and crew to command. A chance to get back to the stars. Too bad he didn't ask more questions before accepting the assignment. Too bad no one told him just how dangerous this particular skunkworks project was.

They call the ship the RV-N: Reconnaissance Vessel—Non-combat, Raven for short. A stealth ship—fast, and maneuverable, and brutal as hell. On the surface, Henricksen's assignment seems simple: train his crew, run the RV-Ns through their paces, get the ships certified for mission operations and job done. But an accident in training reveals a fatal design flaw in the Raven, and when an undercover operative steals classified information from a Black Ops facility, the Fleet Brass cancels the tests completely, rushing the faulty ships and their half-trained crew into live operations. On a mission to recover the Fleet's lost secrets.

Out of time and out of options, Henricksen has no choice but to launch his squadron. But a ghost from his past makes him question everything—the ships, their AI, the entirety of this mission, right down to the secrets he and his crew are supposed to recover.

Sobre el autor

I’m a New Englander. Born and raised in a small town in southern Connecticut. And though work and life have led me elsewhere, I remain a New Englander at heart.I attended Connecticut College from 1991-1995 and graduated with dual bachelor’s degrees in anthropology and environmental science...and dreams of digging up ancient artifacts in the deserts of the southwestern US. Unfortunately, I married a military officer. That meant a lot of moving about, and the few jobs that are available in the anthropology/archaeology arena want you to stay put for years on end.So, take two: back to school, this time to the University of Rhode Island, where I completed an MBA program in 1999. Not exactly the most exciting field of study but boy did it open doors for me. And today? Today I'm gainfully (and happily) employed by the US Coast Guard developing and maintaining IT systems that support all facets of their operations.So, where am I now? West Virginia! I can honestly say that I never thought I’d be living in West Virginia (much less working in the IT industry) but here I am, and loving it. No matter what you’ve seen or heard, West Virginia is a beautiful place to live. And so, here we are: me, the husband, and two cats that basically run the show.Publications in print include "Serengeti," "Serengeti 2: Dark and Stars," and "Hecate."

    This is an I instructional text in what not to do when writing military science fiction. Don't get me wrong, it's a good story, but irksomely executed. The author has an aversion to personal pronouns that makes dialogue clipped and hard to follow who is being spoken about. This is not the way a supposedly professional and elite military unit should be formed. And I'm not certain the protagonists are the good guys.
