Sirantha Jax has the right genes—ones that enable her to “jump” faster-than-light ships through grimspace. But it’s also in her genetic makeup to go it alone. It’s a character trait that has gotten her into—and out of—hot water time and time again, but now she’s caused one of the most horrific events in military history…

During the war against murderous, flesh-eating aliens, Sirantha went AWOL and shifted grimspace beacons to keep the enemy from invading humanity’s homeworld. The cost of her actions: the destruction of modern interstellar travel—and the lives of six hundred Conglomerate soldiers.


Accused of dereliction of duty, desertion, mass murder, and high treason, Sirantha is on trial for her life. And only time will tell if she’s one of the Conglomerate’s greatest heroes—or most infamous criminals…


“I definitely cried at the end of this volume. There’s one more book in the series, and I’m so curious to see where things end…The series continues to be amazing!” Heather @ Errant Dreams “Ms. Aguirre has struck gold with this series. The writing is superb, the pacing is flawless, and Jax’s world is nothing short of fascinating. Jax will delight you, break your heart over and over, and keep you coming back for more. I urge you to give this series a try, and will hope you’ll fall in love with Jax, just like I did.” Kristin @ My Bookish Ways “Ann Aguirre is an amazing story teller – she can keep you occupied all the time. She started with this crazy sci-fi Grimspace world but what she really has given us are unforgettable characters, a fantastic, very original vision and a gripping story. It can appeal to lovers of different genres.” PortiaBridget
