Val Standish is a young farm girl on Nadolo Prime, and everyone knows there’s only one way off that backwater planet: joining the Imperial Fleet. Val is looking forward to a peacetime career, but when an empire-spanning civil war breaks out, Val is forced to prove just how strong she can be.

Val’s heroics lead her to a cushy job as head of the Royal Protection Syndicate in charge of protecting the princess. But love and war are as hard on princesses as they are on farm girls, and Val’s challenges aren’t over yet.
