Overview

She was born to kill, born to die.

Crescent is a crowhopper a genetically modified mercenary programmed for ruthless warfare. When she s taken prisoner by Crater Trueblood instead of being killed in battle, she thinks it s a disaster.

Crater is weary of war. He s a miner, not a soldier. He d rather be mining Helium-3 than battling the infernal crowhoppers. But after he captures Crescent and brings her to Moontown, he s surprised how much he enjoys her company. When she s falsely accused of murder, he becomes an outlaw to help her escape.

The unlikely pair escapes into the big suck and wind up trekking with a caravan of mining pioneers toward a lunar ghost town called Endless Dust. To survive, they must do more than navigate the beautiful, desolate moonscape and battle a persistent band of crowhoppers sent to capture or kill them. They must decide what and who is truly worth fighting for.

Expertly blending space opera and hard sci-fi, romance, and even mystery . . . this is fast-paced, packed with intriguing ideas . . . Peter Gutierrez, Booklist Review

Classic Golden Age science fiction high-adventure. It brought back memories of reading Asimov . . . that same sense of wonder. I absolutely loved it. Michael Scott, New York Times Best-selling Author, The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series
