Empty space can kill you as surely as what careens in waves or particles through its uncaring vacuum. There are two kinds of spacers - those who fear the void, and the dead. Rolee knows which one she is. First officer to a star trader with a love of exploration, she tries to protect her crew and her captain from themselves and each other.
But when that love becomes obsession, taking them from sketchy spice halls to ancient ruins on a world wracked by deadly storms, that becomes harder to do. Everyone has secrets, spacers maybe more than most. Part of a first mate’s job is to keep them or share them. Rolee has never had a hard time picking between the two, but when her captain’s love turns to a dark obsession she will have to choose.
Choose between her duty and her family, her promises and her secrets. Protecting everyone around her might not be possible in an environment so hostile it seems bent on killing them with every step they take. And there’s one thing she hasn’t thought of.
Rolee has to ask herself who’s going to protect her.
Because the dangers of the void are whatever’s there - including what human beings are capable of.
Enter the world of Star Traders as you’ve never seen it before - up close and personal.
