Tarnished Knight (Lost Stars)by Jack Campbell
Synopses & Reviews
Admiral Geary’s First Fleet of the Alliance has survived the journey deep into unexplored interstellar space, a voyage that led to the discovery of new alien species, including a new enemy and a possible ally. Now Geary’s mission is to ensure the safety of the Midway Star System, which has revolted against the Syndicate Worlds empire—an empire that is on the brink of collapse.
To complicate matters further, Geary also needs to return safely to Alliance space not only with representatives of the Dancers, an alien species, but also with Invincible, a captured warship that could possibly be the most valuable object in human history. Despite the peace treaty that Geary must adhere to at all costs, the Syndicate Worlds regime threatens to make the fleet’s journey back grueling and perilous.
And even if Geary escorts Invincible and the Dancers’ representatives safely unharmed, the Syndics’ attempts to spread dissent and political unrest may have already sown the seeds of the Alliance’s destruction...
CEO Artur Drakon has been betrayed. The Syndicate Worlds government failed to protect its citizens from both the Alliance and the alien enigmas. With a cadre of reliable soldiers under his command, Drakon launches a battle for control of the Midway Star System—assisted by an ally hes unsure he can trust
CEO Gwen Iceni was exiled to Midway because she wasnt ruthless enough in the eyes of her superiors. She proved them wrong by commandeering some of the warships at Midway and declaring the star systems independence on behalf of the people though staying in charge as President.” But while she controls the mobile fleet, she has no choice but to rely on General” Drakons ground forces to keep the peace planet-side.
If their coup is to succeed, Drakon and Iceni must put their differences aside to prevent the population of Midway from rebelling against them, to defend their star system from the enigmas—and to ferret out saboteurs determined to reestablish Syndic rule
