On the morning of their break-up Kady and Ezra are thrown together on an escape for their lives as their mining planet is torn apart by a company vying for its natural resources. As refugees they are separated onto two different ships and communication is breaking down between the crews. Kady is a skilled hacker and begins sifting through classified information to find some hard truths. There is so much I want to say about this story but can't because half the joy of reading it is in the mysteries revealed and conspiracies discovered.
