The future is here—and war will follow.
2037: Every nation wants underwater territory. The race for resources on the ocean floor is on.
Commander Alex Coleman thought his career was over when he got sent to Armistice Station, an underwater megastation where you can buy everything except success in the U.S. Navy. Here, he waits for retirement, doling out sodas and supplies while keeping an eye out for unruly sailors—hardly what the Navy sends you to do when you’re on the fast track.
But things aren’t quiet in this underwater amusement park. French marines arrive with Indian Navy support. Both nations want the United States out of the Indian Ocean, and Alex’s eclectic band of castoff sailors are all that’s in their way.
Alex sure as hell doesn’t want to be a hero. Heroes don’t explode coffee creamer fireballs or hijack cruise ships, but the shooting’s started, and he’s got a job to do.
