When the most famous woman in the Universe goes missing, the PULSE Council summons every ship under their command to find her. Captain Zara and her elite crew must take the Moonlighter on a heart-pounding journey across the stars, risking life and limb to find her. Stella, the ship’s newest and only Human crewmember, is still reeling from her torturous Trial. She must overcome her fears or risk losing her entire career – and maybe even her life, all while discovering just how alien her new crewmates really are. Under siege by mercenaries, pursued by a pirate army, haunted by a mysterious energy creature, and marooned on a ghost planet, the renowned Moonlighters might just have bitten off more than they can chew.
