Captain Amara Corrin, hero of the late Solar Wars, commands the first colonial fleet. Full of hopeful dreamers looking for a new home, world-weary ex-soldiers, and those just seeking escape; five ships set out from Earth with the hopes of humanity behind them. But Amara soon finds herself with more trouble than she can handle. The Council, Earth’s new governing body, has saddled her with their political rivals, exiling them to a place where they can do no harm.
Struggling to find balance, Amara appoints a fresh-faced first officer with a hidden past, Nathan Esquina, as she fights to keep her son, Jaelyn, free of the political machinations of those aboard the ship who would destroy their fragile peace. When a message from Earth alerts them that The Council has fallen, Amara, Nathan, and Jaelyn find themselves in a pitched battle where a single mistake could end not only their own lives, but those of every person aboard their colonial fleet.
