This special bundle product contains the following titles.

Even though the "In Love and War" stories feature the same characters, every story is a standalone adventure. Therefore, the stories may be read in any order. But if you prefer to read them as intended, the suggested reading order is as follows:

  1. Evacuation Order
  2. Dreaming of the Stars
  3. Baptism of Fire
  4. Graveyard Shift
  5. Neutral Ground
  6. Collision Course
  7. Freedom's Horizon
  8. Courting Trouble
  9. Bullet Holes
  10. Ballroom Blitz
  11. Dead World
  12. Double Cross
  13. Hunter and Hunted
  14. The Taste of Home
  15. Mementos and Memories
  16. Honourable Enemies.

The first five stories are all prequels of sorts. The novella "Evacuation Order" introduces a very young Mikhail as well as Brian Mayhew during his time as a fleet captain and chronicles the destruction of Mikhail's homeworld. The novelette "Dreaming of the Stars" features Anjali and Mikhail as teenagers and shows what led them to join their respective militaries in the first place. The short story "Baptism of Fire" follows Anjali on her first mission with the Shakyri Corps. The novelette "Graveyard Shift" is set in the same universe as the other "In Love and War" stories and features Mikhail as a supporting character during his time with the Special Commando Forces. Colonel Brian Mayhew, Mikhail's mentor and commander, as well as Captain Elijah Tyrone of the freighter Freedom's Horizon also appear. Finally, the novelette "Neutral Ground" is a side story featuring Brian Mayhew of the Special Commando Forces and his Imperial counterpart General Roderick Crawford discussing the problem of Anjali and Mikhail.

The novelette "Collision Course" is the first story to feature Anjali and Mikhail as a couple and leads directly into the short novel "Freedom's Horizon", which is the longest of the "In Love and War" stories to date. If you want to skip the prequels, this is the ideal point to start. The remaining "In Love and War" stories – the short stories "Courting Trouble", "Bullet Holes", "Double Cross" and "Mementos and Memories”, the novelette "The Taste of Home", the novellas "Ballroom Blitz", "Dead World" and "Hunter and Hunted" and the short novel "Honourable Enemies" – proceed in publication order, though they largely stand alone.

Product Information

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
