Publisher's Summary

The Alliance has toppled the tyrannical empire. It should be a time for celebration, but not for fighter pilot Captain Alisa Marchenko. After barely surviving a crash in the final battle for freedom, she's stranded on a dustball of a planet, billions of miles from her young daughter. She has no money or resources, and there are no transports heading to Perun, her former home and the last imperial stronghold.
But she has a plan.
Steal a dilapidated and malfunctioning freighter from a junkyard full of lawless savages. Slightly suicidal, but she believes she can do it. Her plan, however, does not account for the elite cyborg soldier squatting in the freighter, intending to use it for his own purposes. As an imperial soldier, he has no love for Alliance pilots. In fact he's quite fond of killing them.
Alisa has more problems than she can count, but she can't let cyborgs, savages, or ancient malfunctioning ships stand in her way. If she does she'll never see her daughter again.
Fans of Firefly and Star Wars should enjoy this fun, fast-paced new series from USA Today best-selling author Lindsay Buroker.

Possibly a good book spoiled by the reader

I bought this book from Amazon along with the audio, but tried the audio book first. The reader sounds coarse and robotic, and when she tries to do the gruff voice of Leonidas it simply grates on the ear. I'm not quite sure what her accent is, but it doesn't sound natural. I'm happy to have books read in any accent, but not when it sounds forced. Such a pity when I recently finished Longbourne and the reader was perfect. The story may be reasonable, but I confess that I couldn't finish the audiobook. I stopped with just over two hours to go. I think I'll have to wait a while and then try reading the book from the beginning instead. The accent inside my head may be better.
