Publisher's Summary

Opening Shots, book three of Fierce Girls at War.

The year is 2126. Unknown to the human colonists and the Colonial Rangers at the New Hope Colony on Tau Ceti 4 the alien Rift are finally ready to strike the first blow in their quest to remove the humans from the planet they'd claimed long ago but had never colonized or exploited themselves. Some of the senior Rangers however harbor some suspicions about the mysterious "fog" that has enshrouded a group of islands off the southeast coast of the Alpha continent for several months.

Now the Rift are ready to strike. They had to wait until after winter before their waterborne invasion can begin. Reluctant to endanger their handful of orbit to ground airships they plan to attack the eastern settlements by sea. Commander Rick Cassidy and his deputy Gunnery Sergeant Molly Pickford have made themselves nearly indispensable to the colony since coming to the colony three years earlier after fleeing to the colony to escape the assassins sent to kill them. That threat has passed but going back to Earth won't be so easy. Rick's daughter 14-year-old Ciara is on her way to the colony aboard the starship Asia and his sisters Bridget and Nicole O'Brien, both now Colonial Rangers, are preparing to go there as well. The Regimental Commander General Jamison receives a report from the starship Asia message to informing him about the incident on Asia and learns that Rick Cassidy’s daughter was involved.

A group of 50 female students and interns from the New Hope Academy prepare to leave on their internship tour of the colony’s eastern settlements with Veronika Tchachenko in charge of getting them where they need to go. First stop is New St Louis where they will put on concerts for the residents. Some of the girls visit with their parents who live in the various settlements. Cassidy and Pickford will have to travel with the Rangers’ equipment including their weapons and ammo on the transport Cairo.
