This book follows Abe Haws, son of war hero Isaac Haws, from the academy to Vitaly Three. The reader gets to see how the man was made and why he did the things he did. I understand that that was very vague but I am afraid much more might spoil it and it is way to good for me to do that to anyone.
This is a great sci-fi book and no you don't need to have any knowledge of Nick Webb's Legacy Fleet to understand this book but you might find yourself really wanting to read it after you read this, just a warning. If you are familiar with Legacy Fleet this should fill in some blanks for you, so no harm either way. This is just another awesome book by the Swardstrom brothers that you just do not want to miss.
