What's that you say? A science fiction novel with an amazing female protagonist is what you seek? Well look no further, my friend, this one is supremely good. As soon as I finished the last page I got online and ordered the sequels..squealing with joy that there were indeed sequels to be had.
When your dad is a universally hated war criminal, where else would you go but outer space and of course, carrying false credentials. Rosemary is unprepared for the crew of the Wayfarer and uncertain as to whether she will fit in and as the reader you will savour each moment of her journey.
