    Growing up, Travis Uriah Long yearned for order and discipline in his life...he two things his neglectful mother couldn't or wouldn't provide. So when Travis enlisted in the Royal Manticoran Navy, he thought he'd finally found the structure he'd always wanted so desperately. But life in the RMN isn't exactly what he expected. Boot camp is rough and frustrating; his first ship assignment lax and disorderly; and with the Star Kingdom of Manticore still recovering from a devastating plague, the Navy is possibly on the edge of budgetary extinction.

    Really good read!

    Ok so its not Honour but the world is great amd just a vibrant. Interesting to hear about the start of the Star Kingdom.

    Well worth a read, ..Show More »

    Lieutenant Travis Long of the Royal Manticoran Navy is the sort of person who likes an orderly universe. One where people follow the rules. Unfortunately, he lives in the real universe. The good news is that Travis is one of those rare people who may like rules but has a talent for thinking outside them when everything starts coming apart. That talent has stood him - and the Star Kingdom - in good stead in the past, and it's one reason he's now a "mustang," an ex-enlisted man who's been given a commission.

    expected quality

    It is the start of Manticore the star nation/empire
