Coll Larren thought he’d pretty much hit bottom—until he jumped ship on Far Star and discovered just how far down, down could be. Once, he’d dreamed of freedom from the Empire’s oppressive rule, fought for it, almost died for it, but dreams can die as surely as the men who fight for them, and what does a man do when there are no dreams left?
