Lieutenant Henry Gallant is in trouble right from the first chapter. Henry is serving on the first Faster Than Light (FTL) ship in the fleet, exploring the universe. The ship has plenty of speed, but its low on fire power, the book begins during a fight and The Intrepid isn't doing well!
Henry ends up on the planet they were investigating, but what initially looked like a lush paradise has more than a few surprises. The people on the planet have a problem, and think they've found a solution; like in all good stories the solution may turn out to be worse than the original issue.....
Lieutenant Gallant is a great character, which really keeps the tension up, I found myself really rooting for him!
This is the second book in the series, and I haven’t read the first but I didn't feel at sea at all. I think I’d like to go back and read it to get some more background on Henry but it’s not necessary to enjoy the story.
