The Princess Cecile, the corvette in which they carved their reputations in letters of fire, has been sold as private yacht, but she still has her guns, her missiles, and her veteran crew. Daniel and Adele will need all of those things as they face winged dragons, an Alliance auxilary cruiser, jealous llovers, and a mysterious oracle which really does foresee the future. That won't be enough,though, when they penetrate a secret Alliance base and find a hostile fleet ready for a war that will sweep Cinnabar out of a strategically crucial arm of the galaxy.Preventing that will involve skill, courage, and more luck than a sane man could even pray for ; and it will require a space battle ib a scale that a tiny corvette like the Princess Cecile has no business being involved in. But she'll be in the middle of it anyway, because Daniel, Adele, and their Cinnabar crew would never turn their backs on a fight.

Nataniel Arruns, son of the dictator of Pelligrino, has landed with an army, intending to set himself up as warlord and turn the planet's population into workers--serfs--of their new Pellegrinian masters. Dunbar's World has only its police force to oppose him. Those who rule Cinnabar's so-called ally would rather see Leary fail than succeed in stopping the invasion, and though he again commands the corvette Princess Cecile, on this mission she's no more than a private yacht: her missile tubes are empty. Somehow he must capture an enemy base defended by plasma cannon and shipkilling missiles and supported by a cruiser in orbit. But Leary has the help of Signals Officer Adele Mundy, who can make computer networks do the apparently impossible. Leary, Mundy and the crew of the Princess Cecile have gone up against impossible odds before...and their opponents are still wondering just what hit them.
