“The Belt Republic Books have the sharp excitement of plausible sci-fi mixed with a dash of military flavor and stirred with red-blooded rebellion. Bringing down the corporate machine is always good.”

Gil Klanz is a sixteen-year-old in the asteroid belt. He’s about to graduate from the Belt Corporation High School and he’s secured an appointment to the Naval Academy for space officers on Earth’s Moon.

But all his dreams collapse when a prank involving a swimming pool and three hundred kilos of dessert gelatin goes awry. As it turns out, the Belt Corporation has no sense of humor.

Black-listed by the unforgiving Belt Corporation, Gil becomes part of the independence movement , a movement that turns into the Independence War!

Book Two in the Belt Republic series

Gil Klanz has Changed

He changed his face. He changed his name. But nothing has changed about Gil’s desire to fight for what’s right.

Under the assumed name of Rockaway, Gil, the seventeen year old rebel and hero of the newly independent Belt Republic, is attending the Earth Federation Naval Academy, right in the belly of the Belt Corporation beast.

When Gil discovers there’s a BC war fleet hidden behind Earth’s Moon, he fears for the asteroid republic and risks everything to warn them. In the belt, he faces that same war fleet, but not where he expects it.
