In the first installment of this stylish, smart, military science fiction audiobook series, Richard Baker begins the adventures of Sikander North in an era of great interstellar colonial powers. Valiant Dust combines the intrigues of interstellar colonial diplomacy with explosive military action. "New and extraordinary...?o read this!"-David Weber Sikander Singh North has always had it easy-until he joined the crew of the Aquilan Commonwealth starship CSS Hector. As the ship's new gunnery officer and only Kashmiri, he must constantly prove himself better than his Aquilan crewmates, even if he has to use his fists. When the Hector is called to help with a planetary uprising, he'll have to earn his unit's respect, find who's arming the rebels, and deal with the headstrong daughter of the colonial ruler-all while dodging bullets. Sikander's military career is off to an explosive start-but only if he and CSS Hector can survive his first mission. This fast-paced audiobook will transport listeners to distant galaxies and fully immerse them in interstellar warfare.

Professional reviews

"There's nothing like military science fiction to challenge a narrator. Take, for example, this first audiobook in the Breaker of Empires series. Its privileged protagonist, Sikander North, comes from the colony of Kashmir (think India), and he must battle to earn his place on the CSS HECTOR, an Aquilian Commonwealth (think Britain) starship. The HECTOR is assigned to protect an Islam-based colony (Saudi Arabia) from an uprising, which is being aided by an agent of the Dremmish Empire (Germany). Brit narrator Steve West ably handles the many necessary accents (the HECTOR is staffed by natives of Aquila's many colonies) as well as the names of the exotic weaponry. Due to West's top-notch effort, the production rockets along--just what an enjoyable space adventure should do. D.E.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
