In the future, genetic engineering has created three species of humans: Homo sapiens – the Sapes – are the masters. The Sirians are savage and insular. And the Helots are slaves, denied even the right to breed.

Humanity in all its forms has spread out into the galaxy, ruled by the all-powerful Syndicate of Galactic corporations. But the Syndicate refuses to share technology beyond the ruling Elite.

For Maddy Hawthorn, a Sape colonist, the peaceful life she had planned at Barnard's Star is torn apart when she becomes involved in a terrorist plot to destroy the stranglehold of the Sapes over the other races. Pursued by the military and the Syndicate's agents, Maddy and her companions mount a desperate attack on the centre of control in the galaxy, an obscure planet on the fringes of known space.

Maddy must fight a ruthless regime to survive, but her own past demons might be the most dangerous threat of all.

“…perfectly paced and filled with enough action and intriguing characters to grab hold of readers from the first page to the last.”
Jeannine Chartier Hanscom - Clarion

I was absorbed in this book by the time I finished reading the prologue. There was no quiet world-building going on in this story; it begins with violence and ends with violence. The danger elements are compelling throughout the story, but this never took away from the emotional connection with the characters. I was wholly invested in the survival of the characters by any means necessary.

The main character has the type of personality that forces people to sit up and pay attention. The plot is unique and fast-paced.

An intensely enjoyable tale.
