The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of a single hero in this star-spanning story of sci-fi adventure.
The Thirteenth Man
After five years as a prisoner of war, Commander Charlie Cass-bastard son of the Duke de Maris-is finally home. But his arrival is cause for consternation as much as celebration, because when he was thought dead, he was considered a hero to the Empire.
Alive, he's a political liability. Because the war with the Syndonese is not yet over, and while the King technically answers to the Nine-the Dukes of the various planets and moons of the Empire-there are others actually pulling his strings. And they certainly don't need Charlie Cass messing up their delicate plans. Unfortunately for them, that's what he's best at. And when the next war always seems to begin as soon as the ink is dry on the peace treaty, only a true hero can set things right.
Spanning the galaxy, The Thirteenth Man (ISBN: 9780062562081, on sale 08/23/2016, $3.99) blends the best traditions of space opera and military sci-fi into a non-stop adventure that's as much Patrick O'Brien as it is John Scalzi.
