Jess was born a prisoner, grew up a prisoner, and at 16 knew he would die a prisoner. When his turn comes to try to break through the traps protecting a spaceship it seems his day to die has come. The ship, and others like it, have already claimed hundreds of prisoners' lives.
Instead he manages to avoid the traps and gain access to the ship with two other prisoners, beginning a frantic flight to freedom. Soon Jess finds himself loose in a brutal universe ruled by the Empire and riddled with pirates, slave traders, and worse. Can Jess manage to learn the rules of the universe and the capabilities of the ship he has stolen in time to stay alive?

"Where's the rest!?!"
This is a good book. But I have 45 minutes left and just realized the rest of the series isn't on audible. Where are the other books!?!?!
"Very good story"
The type of story that hooks you in. You just can't stop listening.
Narrated very well.
"Nice science fiction read."
This book takes you on an interesting journey of an escaped slave. The characters are interesting and the ideas of the AI are interesting as well.
The book addresses some adult themes but the author does so in a way that is discrete.
I do not recall any objectionable language.
It is truly nice to find an author that can tell an intriguing story without the need to appeal to the crude or obscene language or descriptions.
I will be listening to the books that follow in the series.
"More Love Novell than space opera"
if you want to read "i love you" and "i dont now" and "he cried" and so on than be my guest. But if you want action scenes longer than the ouey douey scenes than buy a different book.
love story scenes 6 hours, action or flying or technical 2 hours
the main character
its an space opera a girl would write!
