An exciting space opera that is set in the universe of Kris Longknife.”Night Owl Reviews (on Vicky Peterwald: Target)
Seeking revenge for her brother’s death, Grand Duchess Vicky Peterwald underwent an unlikely transformationfrom pampered heir to naval lieutenant. Now a new challenge looms: Vicky will need to use both her military and political ranks to rebuild war-torn planets, planets ruined both by the Peterwald Empire and by Kris Longknife’s revolutionary quests.
But not everyone shares Vicky’s goals. When the death-before-dishonor code of the Navy meets the anything-goes-to-win motto of the Imperial family, Vicky must confront, outwit, and conquer both revolutionaries and her own family to stifle galactic disorder.
And nothing stops a Grand Duchess, on or off the field.
