Cassy travels the Obsidian Rim taking freelance jobs as captain of her own spaceship, but when one of her passengers dies from a knife in the back, she finds herself entrusted with a stolen code.
Containing secrets from the Fertillan royal household, it puts Cassy under suspicion of Prince Stephen, the attractive head of the Fertillan Guard. Battling pirates and evading arrest, Cassy unravels the truth hidden inside the code and realises its value to the whole of humanity. But, as she gets closer to Prince Stephen, she faces a dilemma — can she trust him with information a man died to steal from his family, or must she turn her back on love to save the code for everyone living on the Obsidian Rim?

royal intrigue and agro-science espionage
Independent spaceship captain Cassi really steps in it when she agrees to take on a religious monk as a passenger. Her innocent choice leads to arrest, interrogation, murder, thriling spaceship duels, daring escapes, a nascent agricultural revolution, and the immensely unnerving attention of royalty - Prince Stephen, commander of the Fertillan Guard, and her worst frenemy. Fans of cat-and-mouse spy thrillers and slo-o-ow burn romance will love this one. This is a voluntary independent ARC review.
