Surviving the shipwreck was the easy part

1629. Shipwrecked on an uncharted reef thirty miles off the coast of Australia, two hundred men, women and children scramble ashore on tiny, hostile islands. There is no fresh water and the only food is what they can salvage from the wreck, or harvest from the sea.

The ship’s officers set out in an open boat on a two-thousand-mile journey across uncharted ocean to seek help. But there's not enough food and water for everyone on the islands to last until a rescue ship arrives. One man will stop at nothing to ensure that he is among the survivors.

But adversity throws up heroes. Soon there's war between two groups, both determined to be there to greet that rescue ship when it arrives. If it arrives.

The terrifying true story of the Batavia shipwreck. Contains graphic violence.

Twolip Reviews recommended read “Holy cow! Greta van der Rol’s The Iron Admiral 1: Conspiracy was outstanding, but its sequel is almost beyond compare…. Deception is, in my humble opinion, one of the five best space operas ever written. Hands down!”

Loved Deception even more than book number one, Conspiracy. Well-written, fast-paced, a story of substance. You’ll read this and its predecessor again and again.

I cannot recommend this book strongly enough. The author combined everything that is great about science fiction–space travel, “alien” species, politics, military engagements, technology–and everything that is great about romance–a strong, sexy hero and a strong, sexy heroine–into one absolutely breathtaking story.

...

Grand Admiral Chaka Saahren has the rewards of rank

…but he doesn’t have Systems Engineer Allysha Marten. Determined to keep her safe, Saahren will go to any lengths to win back the woman he loves. Allysha agrees to temporary employment by the Fleet, hoping to avoid at all costs the man she believes responsible for the death of innocent civilians, including her estranged father.

Sean O’Reilly has a plan…

…and it involves hijacking Allysha and convincing her, one way or another, to do just one more job—a job that would clear his debts and save his hide.

Allysha Marten must come to terms with her feelings…

…in the face of a reality that suggests she is a pawn in a growing power struggle, one where she will need all her skills and cunning to outwit a heinous plot that could result in the loss of billions of human lives.

When Allysha decides to tackle the conspirators on her own, she forces an impossible choice on… The Iron Admiral.
