Hi, the name's Joe Marsh and I am the narrator for this book and it's the twenty-fourth century using the Earth calendar and not the Galactic Year count, in case anybody decides to read this book five hundred or so years from now. I begin the story as a soldier on the Security Team of the Interspace starship, the I.G.S. McBride. This was a supplies grain ship that had been converted to a war vessel, as there was a severe shortage of space battle cruisers on Earth. That is because we were losing the space war, right up until two years ago …' Joanna Ray has written a space epic saga full of adventure, humour and romance in the 24th century. Narrated by Joe Marsh, a human security officer aboard the human star ship McBride the story lurches from war, hatred and bitterness between the antagonists to peace at last. The Sikaran Empire has just changed sides and Earth is helped by elite Sikaran soldiers led by Shield Lord Marayshan. Love and romance blossom and flourish on the Naiobi colonies.
