Home: Interstellar by Ray Strong
"... a heroine you can root for …. a compelling read for space opera addicts. " --The BookLife Prize in Fiction.
“combines strength and grace in a way that instantly wins the reader over to her perspective and her values, her every cause..." --Writer's Digest.
In 2177, twelve-year-old Meriel Hope solo-jumped into Procyon System with a ship full of dead people. Ten years later, the most powerful interests in the galaxy aim to kill her for what she might remember.
Murdered parents and a busted spaceship, that’s what pirates left to Meriel and the orphans from the Light Speed Merchant Princess. But her past will not stay buried. While searching for a mythical planet called Home, she trips alarms that protect the killers…
… and the biggest secret in human history.
Meriel has only days to untangle the mysteries surrounding her parents’ death or face her own. What she finds can save the far-star colonies from extinction, but it makes her a target.
And this time she won’t escape.
If you liked Serenity and Blade Runner, and want more kick-ass heroines like Bobbie or Ripley, you’ll like Home: Interstellar.
