When he graduates from the Academy at Port Newmar, Ishmael Horatio Wang reports for duty in his first assignment as an officer. When he gets to his new ship, he finds things are not exactly the way he'd learned in school. The coffee tastes like used engine oil, the ship has no heart, and the nearest decent tailor is two quadrants away. What's a new Third Mate to do? Will he be able to trust Billy?

Enthralled!

Haven’t we all been in a situation where we wished for a voice of reason? Loved how the main character has been growing up in the series. Could not stop listening. And the end had me on the edge of my chair wondering what the author was going to do. I would love to buy this author dinner as a thank you. That’s how much I liked it!!!

Great Story

My boyfriend showed this series to me and it’s really caught my interest. Lowell has a fantastic way of building characters and suspense with this series, and this book in particular has been supremely interesting. Watching the main character grow and support other is entertaining to listen to, and there’s always surprises around the corner. Good read, can’t wait to read the next!
