While summoned to the Imperial Iteeche Court to be humanity's Emissary, it turns out that what the Iteeche really want is a fighting admiral! You see, they've got this huge civil war going, and the Imperial side isn't doing so well. Kris now has command of the entire Imperial Combined Fleet. Sort of. The Iteeche Empire has a ten-thousand-year long history. There is nothing that won't say, "We've always done it that way," pointing to a track record lasting for thousands of years. Even when Kris reminds them they're losing, many have a hard time changing. Many Iteeche also wonder if letting a human win this war for them isn't losing everything already. Kris managed to win a defensive battle with a scratch force. Now she's thrown together a larger force and is ready to take the fight to the rebels.

Rimward Stars can improve the reader's memory. As you read the book, you have a variety of meanings, their origins, ambitions, history and nuances, as well as various circles and sub-transfers each story. Just a little to remember, but the brain is a beautiful thing and relatively easy to remember these things. In every new memory you create a new synthesis (brain path) and strengthen existing ones, which help temporarily stop memory and stabilize mood. How cool is that?. Faolan's Pen Publishing"
Full Description : "What is the value of one life in an interstellar war that has already claimed millions? And if that single life doesn’t matter, are any others worth saving? A distress signal draws Siobhan Dunmoore’s Q-ship Iolanthe, a battlecruiser disguised as a bulk freighter, away from her devastatingly successful hunt through Shrehari occupied space and plunges Dunmoore into a dark, merciless universe of competing government organizations, undercover warfare, and organized crime on a galactic scale. Along the way, she crosses paths with an old foe and an uncertain ally as she and her crew race against time and determined opposition to rescue innocent civilians condemned merely because they were in the wrong place at the wrong moment. Powerful forces within the Commonwealth would call a handful of lives collateral damage in humanity’s existential struggle against the Shrehari Empire. But Dunmoore won’t accept that they aren’t worth saving even if it puts her at cross-purposes with her new commanding officer and the Commonwealth’s fearsome security bureau. After all, her oath to serve and defend has no limitations and no expiry date.
