Publisher's Summary

Sera leads a simple life.

A little smuggling, some drinking contests, and captaining her star freighter, Sabrina. But when she picks up a mysterious shipping container on Coburn Station, things begin to go wrong. She finds herself at odds with The Mark, a dangerous pirate organization that wants the cargo on her ship.

Inside the container she not only finds a woman, but a secret thought lost millennia ago. The woman is Tanis Richards, and she knows the location of the Intrepid, a missing colony ship from humanity's golden age.

Sera knows how to help Tanis and the Intrepid. But to do that, she will need to reveal a secret that will pull her back into a life she left long ago. A life from which she was exiled in shame and disgrace.

Tanis doesn't trust Sera; and Sabrina's rag-tag crew is nothing like what she's used to, but she's going to have to rely on them to avoid capture and get back to the Intrepid. As Tanis and Sera battle pirates and interstellar governments, the two women forge a friendship that will forever shape the destiny of humanity.

Stand alone BUT....

This book can stand alone, however, I feel that it also should be listed as book 4 in the Intrepid Saga/Orion War Series as it follows book 3 in the Intrepid Saga and at the same time introduces new characters with a story of their own that come to interact. The story is fast paced and full of fight. I recommend that you start with book 1 of the Intrepid Saga, they are all good books and I personally believe you will enjoy them and have a better back story on a number of the Intrepid characters.

Imaginative

The story was imaginative and original. However, if you are looking for a sci-fi epic, this is not it. It's more like a teenage boy's fantasy of strong and slutty women. It might make an interesting erotic cartoon. If you go in ready not to take it seriously, you will enjoy it. If you want a sci-fi space adventure, keep looking.

What An Adventure!

Destiny Lost by M.D. Cooper is a well crafted, detailed look into the distant future. The characters are believable, and the science is convincing enough to make you think it would work today. I look forward to reading/listening to more books by the author.

Space Opera at is Best!

Destiny Lost is Rock um Sockum true to force Space Opera in light of classics such as Star Wars. You will grow to love many the characters like ships Captain Sarah, and her AI. The beautiful woman hidden in there cargo by bad guys, and her AI. The book is a non stop riide. With many battles fault in space.

I love this story

This has been the second time I listened to this story and 4th I've been through it (also read it twice).
It doesn't get old or less fun and I'll probably go through it several more times in the future

Sleazy description of female characters drowning a good story

Book has a good story with some fun and creative bits but it all is drowned in how the female characters are portrayed.

Clothing choice (or lack of) is 70% of how female characters are portrayed. Fetish fest in space is quite close to the truth. It’s annoying and extremely repetitive throughout the book. The male characters aren’t really described at all as they are pale and without personality. I actually enjoy the fact that the book has more female characters but it just as the good story false flat.
