Lt. Naiche Decker has finally found a place to call home--complete with the father she never knew--on the ship he commands. Now her new home is going on a rescue mission to the farthest reaches of known space to look for a missing scientific expedition. Did the odd phenomena they were researching claim them or are they still lingering out there, just waiting for help to come? This sequel to We Have Met the Enemy continues Lt. Decker's story as well as those who also serve about the Lovelace.
Naiche Decker, a woman with deep roots in the "old world" (aka around our century) workings such as 21st century medicine, technology, etc., is on a mission to kill as many Eternals as possible, and hopefully put an end to this war. She's already lost her mother and almost her entire military team on the frontlines--now she's given a chance to work with her best friend to go straight to the source and see if they can't discover the beginnings of the Eternal species. The only glitch is that not only is it a highly dangerous mission, but she also has to share the ship with Ricci, a man she's had some sort of tense relationship with since she was a rookie. Will their mission be successful? Or will the web of relationships get in the way?
