From the Author
This, my fifth novel, takes the characters from "Starlight" on an epic quest through deep space, to solve the mystery of a plot to spark war between mankind and our allies, which threatens to destroy peace in the Federated Species Council.
A stand alone novel, fans of Starlight will still enjoy it as a sequel, while newcomers to this universe will enjoy it as a detailed introduction to the people and places of the Union of Free Humanity, and the wider Federated Species Council.
Danger and intrigue await you in this tale, as our heroes embark on an investigation that could decide the fate of all humanity, as well as their alien allies. Visit the worlds of the Preeacsil, the Gaulphine, and others as they follow clues across the galaxy in a desperate attempt to solve the mystery of the HRMSS Deception, found adrift in hostile skies.
From the Inside Flap
This is the second novel to follow the adventures of Starlight Hodgens and Janice Heartmyer. It is a stand alone sequel to M R Mortimer's novel 'Starlight'. In this story we follow the discovery of an ancient derelict from Earth, abandoned halfway across the galaxy. The evidence tells of a great battle. How did this ship reach such a distant resting place, deep within gauplhine territory? Was it all staged? Who has the time, power and motive to concoct such a trigger for galactic war? Find out in Armada's Disciple, a novel that takes the reader far into the galaxy on a mission that could save humanity.
