TAKE BACK THE BLOODY VEIL With a new destroyer command under him, Captain Daniel Leary and master spy Lady Adele Mundy are off to the backwater Veil region on a diplomatic mission. Did we say diplomatic? Yeah, right. What they find is a local warlord ready to throw Cinnabar from the region, a vile aristocrat dealing in slave labor - and a huge Republic of Cinnabar Navy defeat that has thrown the entire sector under the crushing heel of the vile Alliance. Time to fight back - and that Alliance stronghold in the nearby Monserrat cluster looks awfully vulnerable. Okay, actually, it looks impregnable to any but a determined Leary and Mundy. But should they achieve the impossible yet again, they do have an occupying army nearby - if only they can free it from its chains!
