From the time she graduated from high school, Alicia DeVries knew what she wanted to do with her life, and she did it well. But her dead have been betrayed in the name of political expediency. And then pirates murdered her family...


This is a revised and expanded (with a prequel) version of "Path of The Fury", and you can tell that it's written by the David Weber of 2006 rather than the David Weber of 1992, because the secondary characters are very 3D, and I might even go as far as to say that the first part of the book is more interesting.

Certainly, when I started rooting for Captain Chiawa, one of the minor characters in the first section, I knew I was going to enjoy it.

But the latter half is... well, not quite "Mary-Sue Goes Berserk", but there was certainly a higher Koolness factor.
