I usually don't read a whole lot of sci-fi books, but the publisher emailed me a copy of this book and I am SO glad they did. I am loving it so far!

My little excerpt is from the very beginning of the book, mostly because I love the very first line. Honestly, I haven't made it very far yet; just started reading it last night, so I don't have a lot to pick from yet. I think you guys will enjoy it though.

In Captain Admiral Zander Graydon's opinion, it was damned impolite to try to kill a man while he was taking a piss. 
The flash of a flare knife reflecting in the flawlessly shiny chrome of the urinal jacked his heart rate into orbit and forced him into a duck, even as he reached up to grab the arm swinging at him. The metium-reinforced, superheated blade could cut through armor plating. If it went into his flesh, it'd be like slicing water.
With a bone-crushing grip on the man's wrist, Zander came up, twisting to face his attacker. 

- Quantum, page 7 of the eBook
