The Dauntless Summary

An alien fugitive carrying a secret. A mob of relentless assassins sent to stop her. A million-year-old ship from a dead civilization.

Captain James Hanson of the Solar Alliance Vessel Dauntless knows he has to help. But soon he finds the conspiracy goes deeper than he ever imagined. Hunted down by his own government, he scrapes together a ragtag team and goes hunting for the truth.

He's hounded on every side - from the authorities, from alien warriors, from mysterious, faceless soldiers. From the criminal backwaters of the galaxy to idyllic colonies hiding dark pasts, he uncovers a threat to the entire galaxy. A damaged, renegade ship and its unlikely crew of fugitives, mercenaries, and principled officers is all that stands between mankind and its destruction.

    It is the end of all things. Ancient ships sweep across the galaxy, conquering worlds with ease. It seems to be only a matter of time before Pierce and his allies control everything. Meanwhile, the Oracle, Pierce's mysterious advisor, has plans of its own. His own closest friend is questioning his motives. With Earth under occupation, Hanson searches for allies. With a secret at the heart of a million-year-old dead alien and a farfetched plan, the galaxy might just have a thin ray of hope. But the great powers have their own problems. Old allies are ready to betray one another.
