Honorverse: Manticore Ascendant #1: A Call to Duty
Life in the Royal Manticoran Navy isn't exactly what Travis Long expected. With a plague-ravaged economy and no enemies looming, there are factions in Parliament that want to scrap the Navy and shift its resources elsewhere. Those factions are mistaken. The universe is not a safe place, and Travis Long is about to find that out.
