Gritty Space Opera with lashings of sex and drugs – just what you want in a Book of the Week!
GIRL FROM ABOVE
By: Pippa DaCosta
When Captain Caleb Shepperd is released from prison, all he wants to do is keep his head down and earn a living smuggling illegal cargo through the nine systems. So when a synth stows away on his ship, and brings with her a crap-ton of problems, including guilt-ridden secrets he thought he’d escaped, he’d prefer to toss her out the airlock. The problem is, she’s priceless tech, and he’s fresh out of credit.
#1001 is not meant to exist. Created for a single purpose, she has one simple order: to kill. But not everything is as it seems. Buried deep inside, she remembers… Remembers when she was human. And she remembers what Shepperd did to her. She’s not ready to die, but she is ready to kill.
Influenced by ‘Firefly’ and ‘Star Wars’, ‘Girl From Above’ is alcohol-soaked Space Opera with bite.
Generous helpings of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll plus the intriguing character of the post-human #1001 help this novel stand out from the crowd.
