|Summary, etc.:||When Eris faked her death, she thought she had left her old life as the heir to the galaxy's most ruthless empire behind. But her recruitment by the Novantaen Resistance, an organization opposed to the empire's voracious expansion, throws her right back into the fray. Eris has been assigned a new mission: to infiltrate a spaceship ferrying deadly cargo and return the intelligence gathered to the Resistance. But her partner for the mission, mechanic and hotshot pilot Cloelia, bears an old grudge against Eris, making an already difficult infiltration even more complicated.|

Eris has a dangerous job. She commandeers space crafts for the Novantaen Resistance after giving up a life of privilege in the brutal Tholosian Empire. This strict caste society is based on genetic engineering and chips programmed and controlled by Oracle, an artificial intelligence. Clo is a top mechanic and pilot born into poverty in the Snarl, which sits in the shadow of Tholosian Empire palace. Though they have misgivings because of past missions, Eris and Clo agree to team up for a critical job to reconnoiter a vessel. But the ship has already been commandeered by a computer expert, a soldier, and a courtesan. Through flashbacks, readers learn how all five women sought redemption, escape, or both from past actions for and against the empire. Soon they discover a plot that, if allowed to succeed, will mean the death of millions and the subjugation of the known galaxy. The secrets they keep from each other could destroy their new team as quickly as the empire they attempt to thwart. The first book in a duology is a witty, fast-paced, feminist space opera.
