The Second Kalu War rages across known space.
The newly formed Union undergoes its first baptism, the baptism of war. The Free Fleet is barely holding the line against the Kalu. Salchar and the other commanders of the Free Fleet have one goal: survive. As war rages, politics and power brokering are at work behind the scenes in the Union.
Even if the Free Fleet survives the war, will they survive its aftermath?
The Kalu are not a long lost nightmare anymore. They came from the black. They destroyed Rosho. They ravaged Heija. That was just the scouting force. They are coming back.
Power those reactors, charge those rail cannons and ready the fighters. The Free Fleet is going to war.
The universe isn’t always as it appears, something that Salchar and the Free Fleet know only too well. When the black’s own creatures come tearing out from children’s nightmares, the Free Fleet will be there.
Some might call those that make up the Free Fleet insane, might call them lunatics. But in this universe, it’s good to have some lunatics on your side.
Earth is safe for now, with it came some much needed surprises. Though if Salchar was expecting a break he’s in for a rude awakening, well he’s already done that once…but anyway.
Lady Fairgate has sensed something has gone wrong at Parnmal. Thinking that Jorsht is now trying to carve out his own little kingdom, she sends Captain Kelu, one of her favourite enforcers with the largest Syndicate Fleet assembled since the Syndicate and the Union went head to head.
Though Kelu is in for some nasty surprises when he reaches Parnmal, Jorsht isn’t home and this little bit of space is defended by the Free Fleet. S
alchar and his people are going to have to pull some major tricks out of their hats to survive the defense of Parnmal. It’s time to see if the Free Fleet has what it takes to survive.
No matter what the outcome, they’re going to make sure no one is going to forget their names.
Salchar and the Free Fleet are tired, low on resources, manpower and ships that should actually be flying.
Yet they have a mandate, free those that are being oppressed.
Sarenmenti, Humans, Kuruvians, Chaleelians and the genetic creations of the AI called the Planner, Avarians, band together under the banner of the Free Fleet to go to the fleet’s birthplace-Earth.
Life is nothing but a battle for a survival, and Salchar is going to have to use all of his skills to keep his people alive.
The galaxy has a few surprises to throw his way, as well as some politicians up to their own games.
Salchar is going to wish for battles instead of dealing with the twisted minds of politicians and people that think they are still the centre of the universe.
They called it The Recruitment. Thousands were kidnapped and trained to fight. One fought back.
James Cook was a gamer headed for the biggest gaming match on Earth. Instead the Planetary Defense Force kidnapped him, his team and twenty-thousand others.
Their alien trainers don’t care how many of them survive, they only care that they can fight. James Cook was a gamer, but his avatar Salchar, he was a fighter, a leader and the man the recruits need.
James must put his doubts about himself aside, there’s no guide to this, no strategy and it’s definitely not a game. He will need to become Salchar, with one goal, to protect his people.
This is the story of Salchar, his recruits, and the Rise of their Free Fleet.
