Basil Castellan, Sonja and Torval had only recently graduated from the Imperial Deep Space Fleet Academy, and the three comrades had no inkling of the crucial role they would play as the rising storm of war engulfed the galaxy-nor of the importance of the Luon, the dragon-like beings, who were more powerful than humans could imagine.

Prince of Sunset by Steve White

This is a tale of undying friendship and the impact true friends can have on the fate of the known universe.
