Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings
Published June 21st 2016
There is darkness sweeping across the stars.
Most know Androma Racella as the Bloody Baroness: a powerful mercenary whose reign of terror stretches across the Mirabel Galaxy. To those aboard her fearsome glass starship the Maurader, she’s just Andi, their captain and protector.
When a routine mission goes awry, the all-girl crew’s resilience is tested as they find themselves in a most unfamiliar place: at the mercy of a sadistic bounty hunter connected to Andi’s past and a harrowing betrayal.
Meanwhile, on the far side of the galaxy, a ruthless ruler waits in the shadows of the planet Xen Ptera, biding her time to exact revenge for the destruction of her people. The final pieces of her deadly plan are about to fall into place, unleashing a plot that will tear Mirabel in two.
Andi and her crew embark on a dangerous, soul-testing journey that could restore order to their ship—or just as easily start a war that will devour worlds. As the Marauder hurtles towards the unknown, and Mirabel hangs in the balance, the only thing certain is that in a galaxy run on lies and illusion, no one can be trusted.
First off, I thought this was a full length book so I was immediately disappointed that it was only 62 pages. I loved the concept and characters. The writing was outstanding. I loved everything about Zenith but I wish it was full length. Even if it was just 190-200 pages. This book has such an amazing concept, but the 62 pages doesn’t quite do it justice. But I’d still recommend Zenith despite it being so short because I really did love it.
