The Heart of a Warrior

Once, Jackson Rook was a war hero. Raised from boyhood to pilot an exosuit mech, he’d fought gallantly for the rebellion against the Collectivists. But that was a long time ago, on a world very far away.

Now, Jackson Rook is a criminal, a smuggler on board the Multipurpose Supply Vehicle Tar Heel. His latest mission: steal a top-of-the-line mech called the Citadel and deliver it to the far-flung planet Swindle, a world so hostile even the air will kill you. The client: a man known only as the Warlord. Rook has been in the smuggling business long enough to know that it’s best to take the money and not ask questions. But Rook cannot stand by and watch as the Warlord runs roughshod over the citizens of Swindle, the way the Collectivists did on his homeworld. For all his mercenary ways, Rook is not a pirate. And deep within the smuggler, the heart of a warrior still beats.

How John Brown and I came up with this book is kind of cool. We live plotted it in front of a con audience at LTUE based on story ideas given to us by my son (who was a little kid at the time). And now here it is. And it came out really good. I’m excited to hear what you guys think of it.

  1. Dig it! Will order a copy. And I suspect the Cubans in Miami will find this book interesting, given their, you know……..

    1. That’s the impression I got as well after reading it – the good parts of Firefly, with giant robots and kaiju.

      I loved it, and would love to see where you take this universe if it isn’t a one-off.

  2. About a third the way through it and thoroughly enjoying it. Just one question. Why does my mental picture of Bushey and Katze have them wearing red tunics?

  3. Swindle reminds me quite a bit of Pyrrus from Harry Harrison’s Deathworld trilogy. One of my favorites so I am really enjoying this.
