Until he graduates from training, he has no name.  He is no one.

And to graduate, he need only survive.

To escape a life less ordinary, a young man challenges himself to become a sniper for the galaxy-spanning Combine Federal Army.  But being a dead shot with a rifle is just the beginning.  Alone in the frozen wilderness of a savage planet, he must master the three skills of a sniper: stealth, patience, and survival.

And if he fails, he’ll lose his place as predator and instead become prey.

A story of military science fiction and coming of age among the Cold Stars of the Endless Dark universe.  This story also appears in the collection, The Scythe of Kronos

If taking a college fencing class, eating from the trash can, and smelling like an animal were qualifications for becoming a sword-swinging barbarian, J. D. Brink might be Conan’s protégé. But since that career path seemed less than promising, he has instead been a sailor, spy, nurse, and officer in the U.S. Navy, as well as a gravedigger, insurance adjuster, and school teacher in civilian life. Today (spring, 2016) he and his family are stationed in Japan, where he’s providing a bad example for all Americans. In his writing, as in life, Mr. Brink enjoys dabbling in multiple genres.
