“Fast-paced, gripping hard SF with death in hard vacuum waiting at every turn.” — Arthur C. Clarke Award winner Adrian Tchaikovsky

Shann has no legs and has taken to life in zero-g partly as a result. She is a talented tactician who has a tendency to take too much on her own shoulders. Now, while on a regular six-month patrol through the solar system, Khidr picks up a distress call from the freighter Hercules…
