About this item
A gripping military science fiction adventure starring the hero of A Choice of TreasonsAs a lifer in the Imperial Navy fighting in a war that has lasted for generations, York Ballin’s only hope for an honorable discharge is the grave. But what events led up to his reluctant enlistment? What spawned York’s almost fanatic loyalty to his friends—and his doubts regarding the imperial uniform he once wore with such pride? York rarely recalls his childhood, which began with a mystery and ended at age eleven when he was given a harsh choice: Join the navy or face certain death on a prison asteroid. The navy has its own code of justice, but a youngster with curiosity and grit is able to rise in the ranks . . . if he’s given a fair shot. Trained as a pod gunner, York discovers skills he never could have used in his hardscrabble life on the planet Dumark. And though some of his crewmates would rather destroy him than see him succeed, others encourage his intelligence and teach him what it means to thrive within the military traditions. Assignments come and go, and young York moves up in the ranks until, as a newly commissioned Ensign, he’s assigned to the hunter-killer shipThe Fourth Horseman. But when an unexpected foe kills his superior officer and leaves the crew stranded in enemy territory, York must do whatever he can to save the ship—even if he’ll be court-martialed for treason. Of Treasons Born is a novel of the Treasons Cycle; the series was written so that it can be read in any order.
