Book 2 of Fierce Girls at War
“When you’re up in the mountains there’s always a chance that you’ll run into a pack of demon wolves with their armored hides and 8-inch long claws and teeth. The difference between that kind of wolf and my company commander is that I’m allowed to shoot the demon wolf.”
– Lieutenant Daria Patel, platoon leader, 6th Indian detachment, Bravo Company, Colonial Rangers, New Hope Colony, Tau Ceti 4
“After four years at the colony I didn’t think anything would really surprise me. There’s a mystery here and the signs are saying not natural and not of human origin. Where does that leave us? Good thing Rick Cassidy has a secret stash of weapons and ammo or we’d really be screwed.”
– Major Claudia Stairs, XO, 2nd Battalion, Colonial Rangers, New Hope Colony, Tau Ceti 4
In 2118 a Rift starship discovers that humans have invaded a planet they consider theirs. The humans are judged extremely dangerous and must be eliminated. It will take a while for them to return to reclaim their property. When they do they come in three Rift transports with 30,000 Andoval mercenaries.
After three years in self-imposed exile LCDR Rick Cassidy and GSGT Molly Pickford run the logistics operation and have become very important to the New Hope Colony.
The colony transport ship Amundsen arrives in the system with 6000 passengers and crew including 500 Rangers under Col Colin Fox. One of those Rangers is Maj Naomi MacCaffrey who has been sent to join the logistics team.
Back on Earth Kelly Cassidy has trained Rick’s daughter Ciara to be an expert marksman and now she is going to the colony on the starship Asia. She will attend the New Hope Academy, the colony’s only school. Rick’s sisters are also all going to the colony. Nicole O’Brien is a Colonial Ranger. Chloe is going to manage SE business at the colony. Bridget is now in Colonial Security.
