Wandering Star – Book One of the Reunification Series
When Ted Holloman graduated from the Academy, he expected his first deployment with the Reunification Commission to be filled with the excitement and adventure he’d dreamed of since childhood. In Wandering Star, he finds that excitement risks death, adventure hides heartache, and there is cold truth inside the old Dulcinean proverb that your destiny is determined by who you invite into your bed.
Ted wants to prove himself a dependable young RuComm scientist supporting the mission to bring the worlds of Earth’s shattered interstellar Union back together. The first planet fall on Dulcinea makes him question his idealism. People there want to kill each other, and a stray geologist caught in the middle is fair game. Hannah, the ship’s linguist, is willing to help Ted understand how the universe works, including teaching him how regulations forbidding romantic entanglements can be ignored. Things would be easier for her if Ted hadn’t brought Alice back from the battlefield with him. When Hannah goes missing in the Warrens on Bodens Gate, Ted must choose between leaving RuComm forever to rescue her, or following Alice’s advice and abandoning her to the sprawling slum where anything can be had for a price and the first words of revolution are being whispered in the back alleys.
