Summary

Old enough to be used

Young enough to be broken

Sassinak was 12 when the raiders came. That made her just the right age: old enough to be used, young enough to be broken. Or so the slavers thought. But Sassy turned out to be a little different from your typical slave girl. Maybe it was her unusual physical strength. 

Maybe it was her friendship with the captured Fleet crewman. Maybe it was her spirit. Whatever it was, it wouldn’t let her resign herself to the life of a slave. She bided her time, watched for her moment. Finally it came, and she escaped.

But that was only the beginning for Sassinak. Now she’s a Fleet Captain with a pirate-chasing ship of her own, and only one regret in her life: not enough pirates.

Apprenticeship in action?

Interesting collaboration/transition between a waning Anne McCaffrey and nascent Elizabeth Moon. Strong female lead and familiar themes make for a fast fun read.

Excellent Book and Excellent Narration

I remember reading this when it was first published and the story is excellent. The new narration is as good as the story.
