Description

Having narrowly avoided being court-martialed, Lieutenant Sikander North finds himself assigned to a remote outpost in the crumbling, alien Tzoru Empire, stuck where the navy sends troublemakers to be forgotten. Sikander finds himself in the middle of an alien uprising. Once again, he must do the impossible: smuggle an alien ambassador off world, break a siege, and fight the irrational prejudice of his superior officers. The odds are against his success, and his choices could mean disgrace - or redemption.

Review quote

Praise for Valiant Dust

"New and extraordinary . . . Go read this!"--David Weber

"Fans of C.S. Forrester's Horatio Hornblower will delight in discovering Baker's Sikander North."--RT Book Reviews, starred review

"Valiant Dust is an excellent example of military SF at its best." --Mike Stackpole, bestselling author of Rogue Squadron

"In the finest tradition of Honor Harrington, Black Jack Geary, and Nicholas Seafort . . . an exciting new entry that fans of the genre won't want to miss." --Dayton Ward, bestselling author of 24: Trial by Fire

"Intelligent space opera with lots of vivid action . . . sociological novel which examines the problems (on both sides) of a 3rd World aristocrat in a 1st World navy whose hierarchies are equally rigid." --David Drake, author of the Hammer's Slammers series

"Intensely satisfying. Bravo! I look forward to more exploits of Sikander North!" --Ed Greenwood, creator of Forgotten Realms(TM)
