Description & Features+

#1 in a new series from a military science fiction master with over 3 million books in print. A young hero comes of age in the crucible of war and galactic struggle. When Allen Allenson, scion of a noble family that has fallen on hard times, gets a mission to roust the power-hungry Terrans from a “wild” star sector where they’re encroaching, he jumps at the chance to show his individual worth, improve his family’s fortunes – and gather enough lucre to make a good marriage.   But the wily Terrans are not so easily persuaded by a young colonial they think of as a rube. Worse, Riders, the beings who naturally ply the wilderness between the stars, are playing their own deadly political games – against the Terrans, against the colonials, and against one young greenhorn commander in particular: naÏf young Allen, whom they figure they can manipulate to do their bidding.  The one thing nobody has counted on is the fact that Allen, while young and inexperienced, and much to his own amazement, happens to be a hero in the making.  About Into the Hinterlands: “Drake and Lambshead combine politics, military expeditions, and deep-space exploration into an intriguing tale…Recommended for all SF collections.” –Booklist --Booklist September 2011  About David Drake’s RCN series: “[R]ousing old-fashioned space opera.”-- Publishers Weekly on the “RCN” series. “The fun is in the telling, and Mr. Drake has a strong voice.  I want more!” –Philadelphia Weekly Press “[S]pace opera is alive and well.  This series is getting better as the author goes along…character development combined with first-rate action and memorable world designs.” –SFReader.com About David Drake: “[P]rose as cold and hard s the metal alloy of a tank…rivals Crane and Remarque…” – Chicago Sun-Times   “Drake couldn’t write a bad action scene at gunpoint.”– Booklist
