Garrett Heskan isn’t sure which is worse… going to war against the Hollarans while commanding an untested starship, or reporting to an arrogant bureaucrat like Lt. Commander Durmont on the front lines when lives are at stake.
Lieutenant Heskan knows his escort destroyer, BRS Kite, must protect the fleet carriers assigned to Durmont’s squadron, but Kite is fresh from the yards and its revolutionary weapons system won’t stay online. Add to this Durmont’s inability to think beyond standard naval theory, or his own career, in the face of the Brevic Navy’s first foray into stellar aviation, and Heskan’s work is cut out for him. What starts out as a simple Brevic attack into the Hollaran Commonwealth soon becomes a fight for survival in a series of battles that could alter the balance of power in the known universe. Conflicts abound in No Way to Start a War, between fleets, leaders, and cultures.
This is Book 2 in the This Corner of the Universe series, continuing the story of the original crew of BRS Anelace.
