The first action-packed military science fiction adventure in the Confederation series—starring “an entertaining mix” of oddball marines led by a “highly competent and eminently likeable” heroine (Locus)

Staff Sergeant Torin Kerr was a battle-hardened professional. So when she and her platoon were yanked from a well-deserved leave for what was supposed to be “easy” duty as the honor guard for a diplomatic mission to the non-Confederation world of the Silsviss, she was ready for anything.
Sure, there’d been rumors of the Others—the sworn enemies of the Confederation—being spotted in this sector of space. But there were always rumors. The key thing was to recruit the Silsviss into the Confederation before the Others attacked or claimed these lizard-like warriors for their side. And everything seemed to be going perfectly. Maybe too perfectly . . .
