SCOUT’S DUTY by Henry Vogel

“…the best of the trilogy. KUDOS!”

Years ago, Terran Scout David Rice crash-landed on the lost colony world of Aashla, where he rescued and fell in love with the beautiful Princess Callan. Pledging his life and sword to Callan and his adopted home world, David thought he’d never see another Terran again—until the night the sky was lit by weapons fire, as another starship tried and failed to blast its way through Aashla’s deadly planetary ring. Now, rushing to the crash site, David and Callan find they’re too late, as their bitter rival, Prince Rupor, has gotten there first…

For on a world of swords and airships, even a wrecked starship can overthrow the balance of power!

SCOUT’S DUTY is an exciting modern homage to the classic tales of planetary romance made famous by writers such as Edgar Rice Burroughs and Leigh Brackett. If you like your heroes unabashedly heroic, your heroines feisty and true, and your plots filled with dangers and twists at every turn, you’ll enjoy SCOUT’S DUTY.

“Pulp fiction in the best meaning of the term. The story moves along at a cracking pace and you care about the characters.”

When Terran Scout David Rice climbs from the wreckage of his starship’s escape pod, he finds himself transported from the space age to the steam age in the blink of an eye. Drawn to the sounds of fighting, David immediately throws himself into a desperate battle against overwhelming odds to save the life of a beautiful young princess.

Now, marooned without hope of rescue, David is swept into a world of steam-powered airships, treacherous pirates, brutal savages, bloodthirsty monsters, royal machinations, and plots within plots, where matters of strength and honor are most often settled with the clash of swords. As he struggles to learn the strange ways of this new world and who he can trust, one thing becomes clear to him: he must put aside his growing feelings for Her Highness and do everything in his power to return her to her family, even though this means giving her up to the prince she’s pledged to marry.

Told in a relentlessly fast-paced and breathless style, SCOUT’S HONOR is an exciting modern homage to the classic tales of planetary romance made famous by writers such as Edgar Rice Burroughs and Leigh Brackett, as well as the cliffhanger-driven energy of the early science fiction movie serials. If you like your heroes unabashedly heroic, your heroines feisty and true, and your plots filled with dangers, twists, turns, and double-crosses upon triple-crosses, you’ll enjoy SCOUT’S HONOR.

“This is the kind of scifi story that made me fall in love with science fiction long ago.”

“I can’t wait for the sequel!”

(Fortunately, you don’t need to, because here it is!)


“If anything, it’s better than the first book.”

“Many times book sequels are either let downs that show the original work was just a fluke, or a far better story that diminishes the original work. Happily, Scout’s Oath is neither… it is a wonderful continuation of a thrilling story-line that not only stands by itself as a fantastic and fast-paced action thriller, but also extends and gives delightful background and “back-story” to Scout’s Honor.”

“Swashbuckling fun! Scout’s Oath picks up where Scout’s Honor left off, with more adventures of David Rice, Princess Callan and a motley crew of allies, enemies, and other characters. This one brings new high-tech challenges to bear on Princess Callan’s low-tech world, but as always, the stalwart David, Princess Callan and their friends and supporters bravely jump into the fray to defend it. Full of honor, bravery, love, and a great sense of humor, this is an excellent follow-on to Scout’s Honor. This is a great read for the whole family—with characters you care about and that you can identify with. Read Scout’s Honor first, then this one. I’m looking forward to the next one!”

“It’s an epic heroic tale, full of derring-do, rotten bad guys, some really funny dialogue, and people in love. Highly recommend[ed]…”
