Ever date a guy whose mom thought you weren't good enough for him? Yes? Then you have something in common with Harpsichord.
Ever have an ex-boyfriend's mom pay to have your classmates attack you, drug you, put you on a prison ship, and exile you to the far reaches of space where you fall in with a bunch of escaped convicts, become the enemy of a band of witches, fight living shadows and genocidal robots, and get attacked by nightmarish creatures born in the cooling chaos at the origin of the universe? No? Then you have nothing in common with Harpsichord.
Exiled to the Deep, Harp is manipulated and used by those who want to turn her enhanced abilities into a weapon of war. After her prison ship explodes, Harp is rescued by Simon, an ex-Secret Service femme fatale exiled for assassinating a world leader, and captured by Dash, a roguish bounty hunter hired to bring them to the Gulag. Pulling all their strings is the Warden, a man with designs on turning his prison population into an army. He wants Harp as his showpiece, but she just wants to get home and settle up with a vengeful ex-boyfriend and his psychotic mom.
Preferably with lots of punching.
Seems like a lot for one soul to handle, but Harp's gonna learn this is just another day in the Deep.
