Celadon: A Strange Space Novel | Part 1: The Youngest and the Ensign | Chapter 1
It's the dawn of a new era...
The Novan War has just begun. All that stands between humanity and utter destruction are the ships of the Sol Coalition Defense Fleet.
The only problem? None of those ships are equipped with the all-important Quantum Space Drive which allows humanity to travel between planets and stars at a reasonable scale of time. The Drive needs Florivan QSD Engineers to run it, and Florivans are pacifists. Their Council of Elders has never allowed service on military vessels.
The Fleet can do little more than sit at the edges of the Coalition’s seven member systems and wait for the Novans to attack.
Celadon Toreval is the Youngest of the Florivan Council of Elders. If anyone can come to Fleet Admiral Marvin’s aid and help her save her people—and theirs—it’s them.
Celadon, though, has their own reasons to get involved...
The time to act has come.
Reviews of Celadon
S. T. Hinton
"Another great story from this author"
"It felt like I was in the alien city with Celadon, the main character, as they struggled to balance personal and political emotions/obligations with the developing situation faced by their new human friends. I laughed, cried, and by the end of the story was looking forward to the next book in this wonderful strange space universe."
