About Project Xerxes

Emra Telawani always believed the Galileo Space Force and the Marines were a bad mix—until a Marine named Nizsm body-flipped someone onto her tea.

Emra has spent her military career striving to command her own starship. Everything was on track until a rogue Marine punched her commanding officer, sending her on a wild chase through the city of Nova Veritas to defend a man she doesn't even like.

The elusive Marine forces Emra to break a few rules, landing her in trouble with the very person she was trying to protect. Facing a Court Martial that threatens her hard-earned career, Emra's best hope for redemption might lie with Nizsm, the charming miscreant Marine with ambitions of his own.
