Back Cover:

“It’s not that Starbase 14 was unpleasant or anything like that, though it seemed a trifle formal. The working environment for a security marine was probably average as imperial starbases go, spending hour after hour patrolling dull, boring corridors of the station – dealing with the occasional upset was a welcome break from the monotony.

But Lance-Corporal Thomas O’Blivion – a newbie to the deep space mining station – had no idea how bad his day was about to get. Aside from the usual bar-fights, the local miners had gone on strike, and things were about to get a lot more interesting…”

“Quite simply, Christina Engela is one of the best voices in sci-fi right now and to not read her work would be to miss a treat!” – Mark Woods, author of Time of Tides and Fear of the Dark.

Starbase 14 wasn’t exactly the ideal place to start your career.
