Overview

Sequel to popular space adventure, Grand Central Arena!

Leader of the Faction of Humanity. It was a ridiculous title, but the Arena said that was what Captain Ariane Austin was since she'd led the crew of the Holy Grail in their discovery of the impossible, physics-violating place and their eventual return, and when the nigh-omnipotent Arena said something, it meant it.

Ariane must discover what it means to be the Leader of Humanity, both for herself and for humanity, before her enemies—at home or in the Arena—depose her, kill her, or worse. It will take all her luck, Marc DuQuesne's indomitable will, Simon Sandrisson's genius, and the peerless skill of a living legend. And, in the end, humanity’s fate in the galaxy and beyond will hinge on the choice of an uncertain ally who has nothing to gain, and everything to lose, by aiding those neophyte upstarts, the humans.

At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

I have read this book twice and I have only one regret: I fear I will suffer from a mild form of torture until the next book in this series is released. I hope this series reaches 10 books or more. For me, the addition of Wu added something special to the series. I can't wait to find out where the author takes this series into the future.
