Description

An exuberant space opera that dares us to lose ourselves in battle songs and nonstop action

A woman who can wield a weapon like a song. A man who can out-think ancient death traps. A pilot who flies her ship like a second skin. To keep the Kettle out of hock, Lahra, Max, and Wheel flout border patrols, salvaging artifacts from dangerous galactic ruins.

But the power in those artifacts threatens the iron-fisted rule of the galaxy's imperialist overlords, the Vsenk. To protect their dominion, the Vsenk have humbled entire civilizations. They eat ships like the Kettle and her found family for breakfast.

Lahra, Max, and Wheel are each just trying to get home to the lives they lost, but they'll have to evade space fascists, kick-start a rebellion, and save the galaxy first.

Board the Kettle for a space opera like none you've ever read before: an adventure of galactic subterfuge, ancient alien lore, a secret resistance force, lost civilizations, and giant space turtles.
