Science fiction high adventure with a compulsive thriller edge. The inheritor of a family planetary mining dynasty defends her family and the fortune they carved from a wasteland against lawless invaders who would take everything they’ve worked for in a nasty attack.
The Prescott family carved a mining fortune out of uninhabitable waste. In the process, they became some of the richest people in the known galaxy – and human targets. Now the next generation of Prescotts fights for its life against powerful and lawless invaders who would steal the fortune that it has taken a family years, blood, sweat and tears to build.
Caron Prescott, the tough-as-nails inheritor of the Prescott dynasty, has the spirit to put up a fight, but until now she has gone untested. That all changes as Carron is stranded on a lonely mining outpost world. Now she must prove her mettle as an army of hired goons descends – and, in the process, keep her miners from accidentally blowing the whole planet up when they rally to the Prescott cause!
