The Golden Shoe

by Michael Owens

They are the Orphans of the Citadel.

Maisy and her friends have been expelled from the Citadel, a corporate-owned station at the edge of known space. Now they’re limping their way toward a newly discovered planet aboard the Golden Shoe, a “colony ship” that is nothing more than a badly damaged freighter held together with duct tape and good intentions.  

They aren’t alone.

When they encounter a derelict research vessel, it’s an opportunity to salvage some much-needed supplies. But Maisy soon discovers the ship isn’t as abandoned as it appears. 

Friend or Foe?

Nothing is quite as it appears, and their ragtag group once again finds themselves at a crossroads. The road ahead is rough. Can they face it together?
