Black Sheep: A Space Opera Adventure (Flight of the Javelin Book 1)
by Rachel Aukes
Fifteen years into a twenty-year voyage, war veteran Captain Throttle Reyne is looking forward to taking a break from dealing with malfunctions, glitches, and the hassles of monitoring a thousand colonists in cryo-sleep.
But when her colony ship breaks down in the middle of nowhere, Throttle and her crew must leave the colonists behind to search for help. They find a ship that’s not only missing a crew… it’s clearly not from their star system.
It’s the discovery of a lifetime. All they need to do is tow the mysterious vessel back to their colony ship for further study and Throttle won’t ever have to work again. One problem. While they’re away, the colony ship is stolen—with the colonists still on board.
Throttle gives chase to a lawless star system on the outer rim. To get their colonists back, they must take on the pirates and ganglords who will do anything.
