*A 2019 Rainbow Book List Selection* An action-packed tale full of romance, royalty, and adventure, inspired by the story of Anastasia. Perfect for fans of Six of Crows, Cinder, and the cult classic television show Firefly. Seventeen-year-old Ana is a scoundrel by nurture and an outlaw by nature. Found as a child drifting through space with a sentient android called D09, Ana was saved by a fearsome space captain and the grizzled crew she now calls family. But D09A??one of the last remaining illegal MetalsA??has been glitching, and Ana will stop at nothing to find a way to fix him. AnaA??s desperate effort to save D09 leads her on a quest to steal the coordinates to a lost ship that could offer all the answers. But at the last moment, a spoiled Ironblood boy beats Ana to her prize. He has his own reasons for taking the coordinates, and he doesnA??t care what heA??ll sacrifice to keep them. When everything goes wrong, she and the Ironblood end up as fugitives on the run. Now their entire kingdom is after themA??and the coordinatesA??and not everyone wants them captured alive. What they find in a lost corner of the universe will change all their livesA??and unearth dangerous secrets. But when a darkness from AnaA??s past returns, she must face an impossible choice: does she protect a kingdom that wants her dead or save the Metal boy she loves?

Professional reviews

"Narrator Adenrele Ojo juggles romance, angst, and danger in a science fiction novel inspired by the story of Anastasia Romanov. As a child, Ana was found floating in space wreckage, all alone except for a robot companion, known as a Metal, called D09. She now lives with the crew that saved her. When D09 starts to malfunction, she endangers the entire crew in a bid to recover the coordinates of a ship she believes hold the answers to fixing "him." Ojo effectively projects emotions, particularly the captain's anger at Ana's headstrong actions and the longing of the various romantically inclined teenagers. Ojo's deft narration helps listeners keep pace with this complicated plot and leaves them wanting more. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
