A tarnished military Subcaptain, a repair technician hiding from her past, and two genetically engineered cats join must forces to save an important factory.

Military Subcaptain Kedron Tauceti counts the days until he can leave the rare metals factory and his current duty station as the liaison to the galactic government's Criminal Restitution and Indenture Obligation system. The post was protection—and punishment—for exposing a theft ring during his previous assignment. He's more than ready to get his career back on track on a new base halfway across the galaxy, even if it means leaving behind the one person who makes him want to stay. Not that he's told her, because technically, he's her warden.

Former financial specialist and current indenturee Ferra Barray, hiding from her past, only has three months to go on her restitution sentence. She's lucked into a tech repair job. If she keeps her head down, she'll soon be free to figure out her future. Unfortunately, the local shark behind every illegal scheme in the facility wants her to steal for him, and she's running out of excuses. And now the heroically handsome Tauceti, who she hoped could help, is transferring out.

Everything changes when Ferra discovers two genetically modified cats. Saving them takes incredible risks. She doesn't know what she'll do if she can't convince Tauceti to rescue the cats and keep them until she's free to come for them.

But when trouble erupts at the factory, it might just be the cats who save them.

Find out what happens in this exciting standalone novella from Carol Van Natta's award-winning Central Galactic Concordance space opera series.

Why oh why have I left it so long since last reading a Carol Van Natta book? I'm a real book whore, I see a blurb, a cover, a particular authors name and my grabby little hands can't get hold of it quickly enough. However this eclectic and unfocused method sometimes means good authors, really really good authors, get ignored and left by the wayside. This is what has happened for me with Carol Van Natta . From the first line I was hooked, I fell in love with both main characters (as well as two very 'superior' characters) and enjoyed every single moment of the book. The writing flows so smoothly, whilst acronyms and specialist knowledge are explained seamlessly within the plot, making this east to read as a stand alone book. Kedron and Ferra were incredibly well written, very easy to warm to and so believable with their secrets and their idiosyncrasies. The world building was amazing, it was so easy to picture both the facility and the planet that most of the story was set on. There is so much story that it's hard to believe this is a novella, and my only wish is that it was longer. I would have loved more of Kedron, Ferra, Novo and Boz but if I can't have that then I'll just have to make do with reading the rest of the Central Galactic Concordance books, because I'm definitely hooked on them now.
