Cassandra Flanagan has just been given the unwinnable assignment. An officer in His Majesty's Royal Armed Space Forces of the Star Commonwealth, and a self-professed "accidental" noblewoman, Cassandra has gathered more than her share of enemies. Foremost among them is the man who sits upon the Commonwealth's throne, King Mahomet. Eager to get her out of the way of his son's succession, he sends Cassandra to the Azagnani Sector; a hotbed of separatist movements, with virtually no support, and orders to strike first. While he believes Cassandra's failure to be all but assured, he hasn't accounted for two things: Cassandra's determination; and her young niece Salibelle, a freshly-commissioned Intelligence officer. Together, Cassandra and Sallibelle must piece together clues that will link the Azagnani separatists to Azagnani's most prominent noble, Otto von Brauneis. However, when those clues suggest a connection deep inside the Solar Empire ... the enemy of the Commonwealth and all other free star nations; Cassandra and Sallibelle find themselves in a high-stakes game of life or death.

Yay! I'm excited for this assignment!
                              
                              Maybe change "career as cadets" to "cadet careers" for better sentence flow.

Don't worry so much about nailing her description down. It makes this paragraph too wordy. Concentrate on the action instead.

It's interesting how her name, Sallibelle has this Southern debutante feel to it, but she's in space. I like the contrast between the two associations. :)
Lol I have seen so many books especially these kinds miss so much info but it's cool I like it tho

Okay this is kind of confusing with the italics? Is being noble a bad thing?

The aunt is a very big character in this plot I'm presuming!
