A Paperback Original. Science Fiction Adventure with a Generous Dash of Humor by the Co-Author of the Best-Selling The Planet Pirates.

            P. G. Wodehouse meets space opera, as Ensign Thomas Innes Loche Kinago, fresh from the Academy is given his first command. A crumb from the upper crust, he’s eager to uphold the traditions of his family, and in particular, his mother, a distinguished Admiral of the Imperium. Of course, he’s aware of the importance of always having simply smashing tailored uniforms on hand, and having his camera ready to record memorable moments for his scrapbook. In the meantime, a charismatic leader has arisen who seems able to control the minds of anyone he meets, and may be on his way to taking over the entire galaxy. Can Kinago’s aristocratic bearing and unbridled snobbery stand up to such a challenge? Fortunately, his constant companion, the unflappable Jeeves, er, Parsons, is on hand to look after the young, impulsive master, and somehow help his charge bumble his way through, perhaps even saving the galaxy in the process.

 

Praise for Jody Lynn Nye’s An Unexpected Apprentice:

“I thoroughly enjoyed it, the plot, the settlement, the whole nine yards, and especially the twitch of humor at odd moments...a book I can thoroughly recommend.” —Anne McCaffrey

 

“An unusual story well-told, with characters it's a real pleasure to spend time with.” —David Drake

From the Author:

I've been waiting years to publish this one. It was a bundle of fun to write. I love stories about the intrepid young hero who sets out to change the world, and I love PG Wodehouse, so the combination was just percolating in my mind, anticipating its opportunity. Thomas and Parsons turned out to be a terrific pair. I had so much fun with Thomas's family, his hobbies and his unconscious snobbery (he is really very good-hearted in spite of his rank). Parsons is so fantastically competent that I wish I had a minion like him myself.

Enjoy the book!
