Lords of the Winter Stars, Book 2
Is magic in the jungle real or lore…?
A young envoy and his wife, are sent to a distant Rimworld to re-establish commercial and cultural ties with the man the Allied Confederation had appointed as the planetary Regent. The frontier world is a gateway to the new galactic horizons still left to explore. It has enormous developmental potential. It has unbelievable lore and legends about jungle magic that are unlike any in the galaxy. And its Regent is a scheming, treacherous viper who is poised to ‘hand over’ the world to his buddies—the pirates and mercenaries from the neighboring New Hebrides. With the invasion imminent, it’s the worst possible time for the envoy and his wife to find out that they are to become parents—and are stuck on a world that’s about to be decimated by pirates.
