Combining elements of colonial diplomacy and explosive action, this stylish and smart naval-themed military science fiction series follows the adventures of Sikander North, who must choose between doing what’s needed and doing what’s right in an era of interstellar colonialism and power rivalry.

Valiant Dust: Sikander Singh North has always had it easy—until he joined the crew of the Aquilan Commonwealth starship CSS Hector.

Restless Lightning: Lieutenant Sikander North has avoided an outright court martial and finds himself assigned to a remote outpost in the crumbling, alien Tzoru Empire—where the navy sends trouble-makers to be forgotten. When Sikander finds himself in the middle of an alien uprising, he, once again, must do the impossible: smuggle an alien ambassador off-world, break a siege, and fight the irrational prejudice of his superior officers.

Scornful Stars: Now a captain, Sikander Singh North commands the destroyer Decisive, assigned to Zerzura, a haven for piracy and the next playing-board in the Great Game. The Aquilan Commonwealth and the Empire of Dremark vie for the allegiance of local ruler Marid Pasha, a competition with stakes that reach far beyond the sector's pirate-infested limits. Sikander must stop the pirate attacks while charting his course between the ambitions of Marid Pasha, a dubious alliance with a shipping magnate, and the inexperience of Decisive’s crew...a situation that only grows more complicated when an old enemy returns.
