Part 1 of the Space Cadets Series:
Two hundred years ago, aliens came to earth. They abducted millions of people and then told the rest that they were going to evaluate humanity over the course of the next several hundred years. If the earthlings didn't measure up to their standards, they'd be back to eliminate them.
So guess what humanity has done since then: They geared up for war.
As an orphan, Jack Peterson was born into servitude. He may one day serve as a Marine, but he has to get through camp first.
When the class has a chance to board a real warship, he has no idea what to expect.
As soon as they arrive, everything goes horribly wrong.
