Official Summary: “Jace Hughes is a Renegade.
That means taking almost any job that comes his way, no matter the situation. So long as he can keep his ship floating, he’s free to live the life he wants. But that all changes when he meets Abigail Pryar, a nun looking for safe passage out of the system. Too bad there’s something off about the cargo she’s carrying.
Jace knows he shouldn’t ask too many questions, but when strange sounds start coming from inside the large, metal box, he can’t help but check it out. Big mistake. To make matters worse, he’s being pursued by unknown ships – people who want that cargo. Does Jace give up the goods and hand over the nun …or does he risk it all for an even bigger payout?” – Goodreads
Review: I came across this book via a sci-fi newsletter I signed up to. I have to say I am glad I gave it a shot. All three books in the series were all combined into one audible book, which is a bonus. The main character was just so relatable, you could connect with him pretty easily. Meeting the other characters was great too, it added more layers to the story, more layers to the main character. I hope in the rest of the series you get to know the other characters more, what makes them tick, how they came to be who they are.
Looking forward to the second in the series. Also looking forward to exploring the world, the Author has built.
