Honor Harrington meets The Expanse in book two of Richard Baker's intense new military SF series with vivid space battles and elements of politics and cultural heritage
Richard Baker continues the adventures of Sikander North in his new military science fiction series, Breaker of Empires.
Having narrowly avoided being court-martialed, Lieutenant Sikander North finds himself assigned to a remote outpost in the crumbling, alien Tzoru Empire, stuck where the navy sends troublemakers to be forgotten. Sikander finds himself in the middle of an alien uprising. Once again, he must do the impossible: smuggle an alien ambassador off world, break a siege, and fight the irrational prejudice of his superior officers. The odds are against his success, and his choices could mean disgrace — or redemption.
