Présentation de l'éditeur
Since the day he was dropped off at a Federation camp by parents who used him to gain political favor, cybernetic killing machine Soldier Fourteen existed only to carry out his orders. But when commanded to kill a baby girl, he defies his commander and deserts the Federation, seeking a place in the universe for himself and the defenseless innocent he's promised to protect.
Connell harvests the sea to feed his colony on a new, undeveloped world with no reason to attract Federation attention. When an armored figure appears on the beach, holding an infant, Connell fears the worst, but he may have found the best.
