#1 FRIENDS AND ENEMIES (debut novel)
Nearing the end of a twenty-five year galactic war, the Earth-led Interstellar Alliance stands poised to enter the enemy’s realm for the very first time. The TCS Ranger, the Alliance’s newest battlecruiser, is sent out to begin probing operations along the border sectors, and veteran cruiser commander Jonothan Remmick is assigned as its captain.Among Remmick’s command staff is his newly-assigned Combined Sciences chief, Commander Caramissa Kreth. Kreth is a Saetian, raised in exile after her home world was overrun by the enemy. Now third-in-command of the Ranger, she must overcome not only the racism that comes with being Saetian, but also her own species’ inherent timidity and aversion to conflict if she hopes to remain at her position.Below decks aboard ship, meanwhile, newly-transferred Senior Private Alyssa Bretchvelle is a member of the Alliance’s Ground Troop Service and a veteran of the bloodiest fighting on the frontlines. Bretchvelle was a casualty of the war early on in her service, having acquired the alien “Ves-Navik” blood virus after being wounded in combat. Hated in her previous unit prior to joining 2nd Platoon aboard the Ranger, Bretchvelle has found herself alone once again, but still wanting to show her worth to her new comrades. If only they would give her a chance.

#2 THE QUIET WORLD (novelette)
When a once-vibrant civilization goes mysteriously silent, the Interstellar Alliance sends out a ship to discover why. Once arrived, an untested officer, Commander Caramissa Kreth, is placed in charge of a landing party that is sent down to the planet’s surface to investigate. Originally, an alien invasion had been suspected as the culprit in the planet’s sudden silence, but the evidence observed since then just didn’t point in that direction. Now Kreth, a native Saetian — a species widely known for their timidity — must show to her superiors, as well as those she leads, that she’s up to the task of discovering the answer. But will she accomplish her mission and bring back her landing party safely? Or will she prove her detractors correct in doubting her qualifications for command?

#3 PREDATOR IN OUR MIDST (novella)
Private Cory Degan comes to Second Platoon with a dark and terrible secret. He’s a killer, you see. Cold blooded. And he’s come to the frontlines of the war to start his lustings anew. This time around, he’s got his eyes set on a certain little blonde-haired soldier with bright green eyes. Oh, yes. He’s got plans for her. Big plans. And the best part of it all? She’ll never even suspect what’s coming until it’s far too late.

#4 THE GIRL WITH THE STRANGE GREEN EYES (novella)
A war veteran from the 25th century recounts his memories of a female soldier he served with during a brutal interstellar conflict. He looks back on the fighting they saw together, her relationship with their squad leader, and how the girl struggled with both her alcoholism and an alien blood virus she acquired along the way. His recollections are skewed, however, by his desire to cast himself in a more positive light by overly criticizing the girl’s own service. And so it falls on the four short stories linked in between his reminiscing to tell the true tale of the girl with the strange green eyes.
