The Wrong Side of Space

Bitter rivals for over a century, the Brevic Republic and the Hollaran Commonwealth are at war. Cultures that shared a common Terran ancestry have been separated for generations. Now Heskan’s escort ships must protect Lombardi’s heavy cruisers as they are forced to run together into unexplored space from a devastating, new threat. Each commander faces dissension in the ranks, even as they try to unite their fleets and find some way to escape the fate of so many of their fallen comrades. For the duration of the tenuous truce, there is a singular objective… make it home.
