Review

Androma Racella, or Andi to her all-girl crew of the Maurader, is a fearsome fighter and pirate – afraid of no one in the Mirabel Galaxy. Here she is known as the Bloody Baroness, willing to take on most missions. When one of these goes spectacularly wrong Andi must come face to face with the past she is running from.


This is a thrilling sci-fi tale with wonderful strong female characters. It is also complex, mysterious and at times quite violent. You will love the depth of character that is explored as well as the intriguing plot that is very interwoven.


Highly recommended for all sci-fi fans 15 and up.
