From the author of the acclaimed and bestselling debut novel Warchild comes a new action-packed adventure about a young man's journey into adulthood amid interstellar war.

The son of an infamous starship captain, the grandson of a diplomat admiral, and his home station's "Hot #1 Bachelor," Ryan Azarcon lives in a fishbowl. After witnessing a horrific terrorist bombing of his grandfather's new embassy, Ryan's grief-stricken face is plastered all over the net. Now, a year later, he is still plagued by nightmares of bloody destruction that make him desperate to escape his family, the relentless media, and his memories. When his distant and domineering father takes controversial action in the long, depleting interstellar conflict, Ryan is targeted by assassins. Forced to confront the violence, he begins to question everything he thought he knew about the war and his father. He will realize that the enemy is not who he thinks and uncover a secret that may destroy any hope of peace…
