Staff Reviews

If the thought of queer women mechanics and ship captains in space, battling at further intersections of race, poverty, disability, and gentrification doesn't get you pumped to read this book, I don't know what to tell you. This book is exciting and fun. It has the pacing and adventure of Firefly, but these fully-fleshed characters take different roads to more thrilling destinations.

— From Christina


  • Alana Quick is the best damned sky surgeon in Heliodor City, but repairing starship engines barely pays the bills. When the desperate crew of a cargo vessel stops by her shipyard looking for her spiritually-advanced sister Nova, Alana stows away. Maybe her boldness will land her a long-term gig on the crew. But the Tangled Axon proves to be more than star-watching and plasma coils. The chief engineer thinks he's a wolf. The pilot fades in and out of existence. The captain is all blond hair, boots, and ego... and Alana can't keep her eyes off her. But there's little time for romance: Nova's in danger and someone will do anything -- even destroying planets -- to get their hands on her
