A lost starship. A lost colony.
A young colony has a terraformed toehold on an alien world, but it faces a schism. The governor cancelled elections long ago, and his men grow more unconstrained with each passing month. So when the governor appropriates the western farmers’ personal weapons, Peter Dawe’s father sets him a simple task: get them back.
Peter takes the job, but he doesn’t know the extra burden his father will impose, the treachery he will face, or that two lives are at stake when it should have been only one.
