    Fun space adventure rescue mission

    Rick Raine is our space captain. Karl is our other MC looking for transport to Mendhem, a territory controlled by Confed military. The Confed (Confederation of Free Planets) and UPA (United Planetary Alliance) are at war. This story starts on Meridan, a world along the borders that tries to stay a neutral territory. Raine agrees to take him on as crew if he can find cargo to transport. Karl is from Meridan, but has been living on Earth. He escaped his life in the brothels after his mother's death at 12, due to Sam, who is trapped on Mendhem after being sold as a slave. Slavery is allowed in the Confed and sometimes people are given a choice between slavery or military service. I liked the descriptions of the various worlds, the spacecraft, and space travel. I love that the ship is piloted like a theramin. I have to say both characters are so different in their outlook and approach to life, but both are likable in their own way. Rick will remind you a bit of Hans Solo and this is no bad thing. Karl could be a young Luke without cool powers. The sex scenes were well written and fit into the story as a natural, inevitable progression to them growing closer through proximity and sharing dangerous situations. As a novella it did its job of telling a complete story with world-building. Due to it's length, it did such a good job by focusing on the two main characters and showing us parts of space inhabited by "border rats" and a small part of Confed space. We don't know that much about UPA and that is fine. I hope adventures in this world continue and we get to see if UPA is actually the "good guy" in this fight, or if it is a bit more nuanced than that. This story is complete with an ending, but it could be a beginning too, so that could make this work for a prequel or just book one in this world. I would rate this 4.5 stars.
