About the book:
One day, Thad Marcell will be the controversial leader of a powerful mercenary company. But in the beginning, he was just a young and naïve starship engineer working aboard a cruise ship in Earth space, with no idea that there was a huge interstellar civilization outside our star system. His fate–and that of the galaxy itself–is changed forever when he’s abducted under mysterious circumstances and sold into slavery, finding himself in a civilization that believes Earth is just an ancient myth. If anyone can survive all the confusion and ridicule, it’s Thad, for he is intelligent and highly resourceful.
