A COWARD DIES A THOUSAND TIMES, BUT A BRAVE MAN’S DEATH IS REAL!
That and “Never Volunteer” could have been Ryne Sangre’s dual mottoes, but now that the Wholeth Empire is reaching out to annex the worlds of the Polar Cloud, it’s time for all able-bodied citizens of the Cloud to do their part to defend their homeworlds—whether they want to or not! And since Ryne’s superb reflexes combined with his instinctive tendency to do the right (ie, cowardly, which is to say survival-prone) thing when he is terrified had distinguished him in pilot training—he will be in the first wave of fighters to die gloriously for the Cloud.
That’s bad enough, but now Ryne—through no fault of his own—finds himself in possession of the Wholeth Empire’s secret weapon, and there’s nothing to do but run. He’s considered a dangerous spy (shoot on sight!) by one side, and a traitor by the other (ditto!).
Only one thing can make his life worse—a woman. So now he’s got one, and she’s bent on using his weakness for the fairer sex to force him to a place he’s never been before, a place from which no ship or pilot ever returned . . .
