Ambassador of Progress

An interstellar catastrophe has left humanity scattered on dozens of primitive worlds. Fiona is an emissary to one such world, charged with helping the inhabitants of Echidne rise from barbarism.

But once she’s arrived on the planet, she finds herself in the middle of a war… the Brodaini, the world’s most ferocious warriors, have risen in revolt against their overlords. The combat threatens to become a war of extermination.

Fiona is a neutral in the war. But Echidne is proving a perilous place for neutrals…


“Well-developed characters, an intriguing plot and a clear view of the double-edged sword called change make this an engrossing book to read. Young adults […] will find [a] special mixture of warm human relationships in an entirely different kind of world.”
