Halden Blake was a good soldier and a good man. He never intended to be a hero, and he definitely never intended the events that landed him in intergalactic politics. Now, three presidential terms later, Halden must decide if running for office again is worth five more years of putting his own life on hold.

Isaac Knox has been President Blake’s public liaison from the start, an ally and friend through difficult times. Halden has always carefully resisted thoughts of more, and Isaac has never given any hint of returning his guarded attraction. But when Halden finds himself struggling with questions about his own future, Isaac makes a surprising offer that could change everything.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Daily Dose package “Never Too Late.”

My View:

Take Your Best Shot by Starlight was a very short and interesting book. For only 23 pages there was quite a bit of world building and history to the characters packed in.

Halden Blake was a fortunate soldier that thought the mission he was sent on over a decade ago was the end of the line. Instead through luck and a little ingenuity he helped bring an end to the war and became an overnight hero. His heroism and notoriety landed him a top job in intergalactic politics.

He is just coming up to the end of his 3rd 5 year term and is feeling unsettled. Should he put himself forward for a 4th term and keep the status quo or should he step down and work on gaining himself a personal life? Both ideas scare him.

Isaac Knox has worked alongside Halden for all these years and for the last seven of them has been hiding a secret. He knows his boss’s life is in turmoil over his decision about his future but what would happen if he gave him another option?

This short story felt like the beginning of a bigger story. It left an opening for what happened next and I would be curious to see more of Blake and Isaac.
