Knox defends his own.
Space is a deadly business, a truth Knox has experienced first hand. That's why he's so protective of his ship and family. So when pirates plunder an impoverished town--a town that's earned the rare honor of Knox's guarded friendship--he's going to do something about it.
Knox knows the pillagers will be back for more, so his town needs protection from any and all pirates, for years to come. Only one way to do that. His friends need shields to keep their town and children safe, and Knox will get those shields. Even if he has to steal them.
Knox devises a carefully crafted plan and hires the perfect crew. He’ll “borrow” from Caravan Suppliers—the Goliath of space shipping—a company that can afford to lose a shield generator or two. No one will know he was there.
But Caravan Suppliers has a dirty slave habit, and they’ll kill to it keep secret. When Knox stumbles onto it, he endangers his crew and his family. Will this operation cost Knox more than he’s willing to pay?

Well written sci fi thriller with interesting characters and plot.35
Good characters, with a meaningful story to take on human slavery in the future. We may escape our earthly cradle but we take the best and worst of humanity with us; human nature prevails. People in this universe often have adaptive abilities that enhance their chances of survival but make them useful or targets. I thoroughly enjoyed the motley assortment of characters from many nationalities. A uplifting tale giving hope we see past our superficial differences and become more in doing so. The book leaves you with a sense of belonging and opens the door for more. I will be continuing the series.55
A very enjoyable book. Kept my interest up.55
