Hero of the Republic

The Brevic-Hollaran War and its aftermath unfold in this military space opera full of heroism, revenge, and epic fleet battles.  

What readers are saying about Hero of the Republic:

“Accurate and visceral descriptions of space battles and plenty of intrigue.”

“Another dramatic trip through the Ringel universe. New characters to grow fond of, plenty of technical space warfare, and a moral look at war that makes you think.”

“It is a very difficult balance to take a reader to the end of a book and have them be both satisfied and hungry for more. Ringel does this in spades with Hero. I can’t wait to see what happens next!”

The Brevic Republic and the Hollaran Commonwealth became bitter adversaries after each won its independence from the Solarian Federation more than a century ago. Now heroism and revenge intertwine as the rival human fleets go to war…

Sabrina Twist had a distinguished career in the Brevic Navy before taking a position of power in the Ministry of Public Relations and Information. She expected Caden, her only remaining son, to live up to her legacy and become a hero when he joined the military at the start of the Brevic-Hollaran War.

But when the outcome of the war is… unsatisfactory… Adira Fane, the Minister of Intelligence, launches a multi-year shadow operation to restore the Republic’s honor. Maneuvering the General Council into funding a secret expedition, Fane keeps the true nature of her plan to her inner circle. The Hollarans stumbled on a devastating alien race in their quest to flank the Republic during the war, and Fane means to use that discovery to secure a final victory. Sabrina Twist sees one last opportunity for Caden to fulfill his destiny and advance their family name by joining Fane’s fleet.

Hero of the Republic is Book 1 of The Parasite Initiative, a standalone series set in the same galaxy as the five books in the This Corner of the Universe military space opera.
