Zeric Dustlighter has been a soldier his entire adult life. Give him a gun and tell him who to shoot, and he’ll get the job done. He always knew he was never cut out to be in command.

But now, cut off and trapped behind enemy lines, Zeric faces his worst nightmare: the fate of thousands of lives—and possibly the entire Union—is in his hands.

Excerpt
 
The explosion shattered the window above Zeric’s head. Oops, he thought. That hadn’t been intended. In the distance, he could just make out the light from the fire started by the explosion.

“Looks like Gu’od made his delivery,” Zeric commented to the Terran boy beside him.

Kumus Stryker smiled, “You said he wouldn’t disappoint, General.”

The reverence with which Kumus said his title still made Zeric uncomfortable. Despite having been a general for more than two months, and most of that time in command of the stranded Union Army on Sulas, he still hated it. To be
fair, Kumus had acted the same way when the boy had been his aid back on Enro.

Fun Facts
 
• The image of Zeric is based on a friend of mine, who is also a big
hockey fan.

• Two short stories on my website (http://waynebasta.com) flesh
out the background of some secondary characters who play an
important role in this story.

• The whole Aristeia series steals elements from old stories and
roleplay games through out my life. Maarkean came into existence
as an Elf ranger I made for a D&D campaign when I was 13. We
never actually played that adventure but the name stuck.

• The early concept of the book included a scene where Saracasi takes
the Audacious to Earth and attacks Alliance ships, John Paul Jones
style.

About Wayne Basta
  
As a child, Wayne Basta was introduced to science fiction at a young age by his father. Mainstream hits like Star Trek and Star Wars were followed by old Tom Swift novels and then classics like Asimov and Clarke. Growing up on Florida’s space coast only served to fuel his imagination and love of space, science and adventure.

At the age of 9, his family got their first home computer, an old Macintosh Plus, and he immediately used it to start writing science fiction adventure stories. He continued writing as a hobby all the way through college at the University of Florida, where he initially pursued a career in the US Navy until an injury changed his plans. Wayne then spent several years teaching high school and working in the education non-profit sector before coming back to his old dream of writing.

Wayne currently lives in Houston with his wife, dog and soon to be born son. He remains a fan of geek culture, board games, video games, fantasy, science fiction and all around silliness.
