A first novel.
The Spectra treaty has been broken and the image of peace has fallen. Humans living in the metal structures circling the planet Eros are once again locked in conflict with humans on the planet's surface. New ships called Mercury could save Eros from certain destruction, and they would be flown by teenagers. Six gifted pilots are selected, but plans go awry and they end up fighting alone. The pilots are the last chance ERos has to become free from the oppressive government in space. With everything pent against them, the pilots will have to beat the war inside themselves before they can stop the war raging in the stars.
