Alex Lidellabout this book: Nile Greysik is royal born, but aboard the A.S. Faithful, she is a lowly lieutenant of the Ashing Armada. Now, nine years of training and dreaming culminate in her first command: captain a captured enemy vessel with a prize crew - and a hold full of enemy prisoners - to port.
By the end of the first day, the crew turns as surly as the worsening weather, and Nile's confidence is taking on water. The biggest spur in her side is Lieutenant Syd Carley. Handsome and charismatic, with a gift for eeling his way out of work.
Naturally, the crew loves him.
To Nile's aggravation, Syd makes her wonder what it's like to be just a girl, and not a disciplined, buttoned-down naval officer of the Ashing Kingdom. But Nile has a job to do and no time for Syd's games—especially when an accidental gun discharge gives away her ship's position. And Nile realizes too late the enemy is closer than she thinks.
