Arek Lancer just wants to deliver his cargo to the mining asteroid and find a new shipment. A former Earth Expeditionary Forces Special Operations soldier, Lancer left that all behind to become an independent freight hauler that is barely getting by. Hopping from one solar system to another, answering to no one but himself, he’s enjoying the life except for the somewhat frequent trouble that comes his way.
He’s hoping to get off the mining asteroid CU145792 without encountering any of that trouble. All is going good until a new kind of trouble runs into him in the form of a thirteen year old kidnapped Thesan girl being pursued by the Tiat.
As much as he might not want to, Arek will find himself drawn into the girl’s world, fighting to protect her and finding out why she is The Last Child.
