KRAIT IS MY CALL SIGN. IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS, THEN YOUR DOOMED.
In the twenty-fourth century, for better or worse, global government is a fact, intra-stellar trade a reality, alien contact and conflict a known liability, and brokered certified mercenaries fill the societal role of "extraordinary facilitators." Don't like the look of that? Well, tough.
I, Kathleen 'Krait' Kramer, am a former United Earth Force Air & Space Command, First-Class Navigator. On my honorable discharge, I took a chance on a corporate outfit and succeeded hugely. First, I got a gene splice, gained the ability to mind speak, and then my employer uploaded me with the specs of their new intra-stellar interceptor prototype—the Praying Mantis. My job as test nav was to push that sucker to the stops, and did, several times. I've even flown missions against hostile aliens. And what did I get for it? A cultural outreach post on Sagittarius 43. I sure didn't see that one coming.
This volume is the third book of a new sci-fi fiction series. For those not familiar with my others, peek inside and find others that include time travel, paranormal archaeology, and age-old rivalries between occult societies.
