A Call to Duty

A Call to Duty
Title: A Call to Duty
Author: Weber David + Zahn Timothy + Pope Thomas
Serie:Manticore Ascendant
Genre: fantasy, space fantasy
Annotation:Growing up, Travis Uriah Long yearned for order and discipline in his life the two things his neglectful mother couldnt or wouldnt provide. So when Travis enlisted in the Royal Manticoran Navy, he thought hed finally found the structure he'd always wanted so desperately. But life in the RMN isnt exactly what he expected. Boot camp is rough and frustrating; his first ship assignment lax and disorderly; and with the Star Kingdom of Manticore still recovering from a devastating plague, the Navy is possibly on the edge of extinction. The Star Kingdom is a minor nation among the worlds of the Diaspora, its closest neighbors weeks or months away, with little in the way of resources. With only modest interstellar trade, no foreign contacts to speak of, a plague-ravaged economy to rebuild, and no enemies looming at the hyper limit, there are factions in Parliament who want nothing more than to scrap the Navy and shift its resources and manpower elsewhere. But those factions are mistaken. The universe is not a safe place. Travis Long is about to find that out.
