Saving the Academy

(A book in the Dumb Luck and Dead Heroes series)
A Novella by

Brad Mendoza doesn’t stand a chance…

A short story in the universe of
Dumb Luck and Dead Heroes! What happens when a single cadet is all that stands between his star nation and a violent coup? If you're Brad Mendoza, you find a way to mess things up.

Midshipman Mendoza is quickly learning that life at the Promethean Naval Academy isn’t all he hoped for. Doing poorly in his classes, constantly breaking the rules, and striking out with the female cadets, he’s pretty much hopeless.

But a chance encounter with a mysterious boat on the beach thrusts Brad into the center of a conspiracy of galactic proportions and forces him to take sides in a fight within the Royal Family of Prometheus itself.

Now, Brad will need a lot of help from his friends to not only get out of this alive but maybe even save the entire Academy in the process.

A short story set in the fan-favorite universe of
The Worst Ship in the Fleet and Dumb Luck and Dead Heroes, Saving the Academy will keep you guessing as you try to figure out what smart (or very stupid) thing Brad will do next. Equal parts naval academy adventure, military science fiction, mystery, comedy, and space opera, Saving the Academy will take you back to the beginnings of Brad’s naval service and show you just how much of a hero he can be!

This book can be read and enjoyed with or without first reading The Worst Ship in the Fleet.
