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.

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.

Reminds me of Honor Harrington

I loved this story. The characters are great, and the author doesn't resort sec to spice up the plot. I even bought the next audio book at full price, and I rarely do that.

Entertaining, but one will be enough

A good sci-fi story but not unique enough for me to want to continue with the other books. A bit too easy to see what was going to happen.

Cliffhanger

My goodness what a story. And an ending that makes you want to run out and get the next one right now.
