Hestia 2781

 

Set in the Portal Future

Hestia 2781 is a full-length novel and the second part of a three part sequence featuring Drago Tell Dramis as a newly qualified fighter pilot.

The full sequence will be:- Hera 2781 (A Drago short story), Hestia 2781 (A Drago novel), and Sol 2781 (A Drago novel).

The year is 2781. Lieutenant Drago Tell Dramis’s first mission as a newly qualified fighter pilot ended with him and his team leader saving one of humanity’s oldest colony worlds, Hera, from destruction. Now he’s discovering that saving a world can be simple compared to living with the consequences.

Both Drago and his team leader and second cousin, Jaxon, are famous now, given rapid field promotions, and are due to be awarded medals. Worryingly, Drago learns Jaxon has a mysterious secret and a past history of erratic behaviour. It’s vital that Drago keeps both of them out of trouble and away from nosy reporters until the medal ceremony, because Jaxon could do or say something that deeply embarrasses both the Military and their Betan clan.

The Military is helping by sending their fighter team on a mission somewhere inconspicuously boring until the medal ceremony. That destination definitely won’t be Hestia, the perpetual trouble spot of humanity.

Books In Brogan “If you liked the Earth Girl series then you must read this book. It will give you not just more of Drago’s background but you also get a lot of great details to add to Jarra’s background.” See review

Brainfluff “I always enjoy Janet’s writing. Her books and short stories radiate a positive, upbeat energy often lacking in science fiction and which right now, I find particularly appealing.” “As ever, Janet delivers a cracking good read set in a detailed, complex world.” See review

    Hestia 2781 is GREAT! Loved having Gemelle in it a little bit and seeing her in action, and Renton, and Mason and all of the other characters ….

    I’m so excited! I’m just waiting for the Kobo link, then I’m grabbing it! I can’t wait to see what happens to Drago after Hera – I loved that story. Once Sol comes out I have a feeling there might be a complete Portal Future reread coming on 🙂

  5. Unfortunately, there’s a public holiday in Canada, so I’m afraid the kobo link may take another day or two, but I hope you enjoy the book when it pops up there. 🙂

    the sheer chaos of this book was a great joy, I loved the new perspective and it was also very fun knowing what Drago was going to find out just for the painful irony. Also Jarra deeply underestimated how much her clan wanted her and that a big ouch

  7. And Hestia 2781 is now available on Kobo. Bit of a delay there due to a public holiday in Canada.

    Guys, be careful, there’s Scaveger Exodus book 3 spoiler in Hestia. I approve of it though. 👌

    Could you explain what the phrase “Let the Stars go dark” means? I’m not asking for any spoilers, but more in context at that moment with Drago as I can’t make it work out to have any real meaning.

    To me the phrase means the end of the world or the end of all life, but in context to the story, it probably means “whatever happens as a result of his actions, will just have to happen” or he will deal with the consequences later. Something like that.
    btw I really like that phrase, whatever it’s meaning. 😊 Thanks!

    Speaking of chaos, I (and a few others on the Portal wiki) have been wondering what would happen if General Hiraga and General Dragon Tell Dramis are in a room together? I can imagine the joke: “General Hiraga and General Dragon Tell Dramis walk into a meetup… and cause massive congestion at the nearest Off-World as the planet evacuates.”

    Actually, General Hiraga heads the Planet First and Colony Ten command chains, and often requests General Dragon Tell Dramis to deal with problems. They therefore have regular meetings, usually by holo but occasionally in person. Whenever possible, Planet First Central Command Support issues advance warnings of the in-person meetings. While General Hiraga and General Drago Tell Dramis have a grudging respect for each other, most officers prefer to arrange commitments as far away from the meeting place as possible. There’s a theory that an argument between them could cause a dome to spontaneously combust.
