However the ending was a bit cliche and didn’t care for most of it.
Unsure about next book because the losses they took during the ending felt like bait and switch.
Overall enjoyed it but very mixed about ending
Excellent companionship between characters
Unexpected plot twists

Disclosure: I was happy to receive an advance copy of this book.
This is billed as the start of a new space opera series and I couldn't be happier to see that happen. This book was very well written with a detailed and well developed plot that kept my attention throughout the story. It helps that the story is centered around two tough and smart female leads with a diverse supporting cast that help bring the story to life. Excellent character interactions with just the right amount of snark made the story very enjoyable to read and really difficult to put down. I am really looking forward to the next book to see what our crew gets into next.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout for review purposes.
Kay installed the security system for several conglomerate members and now they’ve stranded her on a planet so they know where to find her when they want to dispose of her. Desperate to leave, she accepts a ride with a ship and crew that make a risky deal with her- help them get through the security to ‘reappropriate’ the money in one of the conglomerate members vaults.
This is the second book I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Barbara Rich ) and I would listen to another. Despite the book is from the viewpoint of Kay, the narrative is done in once voice and Kay’s voice in another. This is not necessarily an issue. Kay’s voice is high and appropriate for when she was on edge and scared (which is a lot of the time), but this gives her a constant ‘freaked out’ sound.
She gives the characters all individual voices and varies their cadence. She does well performing this book so it’s like listening to a movie instead of a book being read.
There are no explicit sex scenes although there is a romance, no excessive violence. There is very occasional swearing.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Software engineering genius Katherine is on the run after creating the most un-breakable code in the galaxy for a shady syndicate...and it didn't take them long to figure out she's the only loose end in their un-hackable security system, and Kay's just waiting for a bullet in the back. Captain Magdalene Landon and her privateer crew of the ship Black Flag come to her rescue by offering Kay
a ride out of harm's way--in return for using her talents to help them pull off the heist of the century. Without any real options, Katherine reluctantly agrees, but she never expected to fall for the fiery, no-nonsense Maggie Landon.
Loved it! This was a really fun space opera/Firefly kind of heist adventure with a female Captain Tightpants, and it featured a great cast of characters. I especially liked Kay's friend and confidant, Frank, and Kay's bodyguard-murderbot, who takes his job very seriously. I developed a crush on Maggie Landon about the same time Katherine did. The book kept my attention, and it's a quick, exciting read. Definitely worth checking out!
