The Blood Service

by Allen Ivers

Aaron Havenes practically grew up in prison, charged with the crime of defending himself. He never thought he’d fight for the Galactic Empire that stripped him of his freedom. But picking up a rifle might be the only way to get his life back.

The remote colony of Vanguard is under siege, and politicians have withdrawn the garrison. Their only hope of surviving the onslaught of alien attacks is to arm the able-bodied convicts in their mines. Sacrificing a few criminals might save a few of the real soldiers.

But Aaron proves more capable than anyone expects, and before long he’s held up as an example of what the criminals could be. But the establishment only sees that as a threat to their status quo, and they arrange for him to be abandoned in alien territory.

The vicious creatures don’t kill him, however. They have plans for him. And Aaron might just pick their side.
