When a group of native aliens kidnap one of her two remaining crewmates, it's up to her and Danielle to figure out how to rescue him and keep the captain safe at the same time, with only a single antique weapon between them.

About the Author
S.A. Barton lives in coastal Virginia with his wife, teen stepson, two under-5s, and demanding cat (as they all are). His path to the present was a strange, sometimes harrowing, and winding one; you may find this reflected in his writing. He has previously appeared in the pages of Penumbra magazine, in Daily Science Fiction, and in OMNI Reboot. He's a winner of the first Amazing Stories Gernsback Writing Contest. He is also proud to be a self-published indie author with dozens of short ebooks and collections to his credit, which may be found through sabarton.com. He also tweets far too much as @Tao23. While most of S.A. Barton's work is in science fiction, some of it strays into other genres such as fantasy, mainstream, alternate history and others -- like the cat, it wanders some.
