Hotshot pilot Nax Hall has a history of making poor life choices. So it’s not exactly a surprise when he’s kicked out of the elite Ellis Station Academy in less than twenty-four hours.
But Nax’s one-way trip back to Earth is cut short when a terrorist group attacks the Academy. Nax and three other washouts escape—barely—but they’re also the sole witnesses to the biggest crime in the history of space colonization. And the perfect scapegoats.
On the run and framed for atrocities they didn’t commit, Nax and his fellow failures execute a dangerous heist to spread the truth about what happened at the Academy.
They may not be “Academy material,” and they may not get along, but they’re the only ones left to step up and fight.

This book has all the fun things in it: quirky characters, diversity that doesn’t make a big deal out of diversity, great witty banter, adventure galore, great world building, and it feels like Firefly meets Guardians of the Galaxy. Really hard to put down.
The main character, Nax, has an incredibly original voice, and is extremely relatable. When he and the other rejects of the Space Academy are in a transport back to Earth, they witness a huge crime and are chased by the perpetrators who try to make sure the truth doesn’t get out. What follows is a great heist, crash landings on colonies that have well developed cultures and a crazy ride through space to stop mayhem. I’m not even a huge space sci-fi reader, but this had me glued from page one.
Loved every second of it, and can’t wait to read more by this incredible new author. I feel bad for the public who has to wait until December 2018 to buy it! Thanks to MK England for the ARC!

I have such a weird relationship with this book. Because I enjoyed its charm???? It was BUBBLY. Like little kid Mr. Bubble. I tasted a bubble once and it was not my most promising day.
But sadly the charm wasn’t enough to sustain my needy self.
I enjoyed the story but at the same time I was ready for it to end. Constantly. It was like having a date with Captain Kirk!!!!!!!!!!? There was so much adventuring and not nearly enough substance, which I feel like would be a Captain Kirk Date. I wanted Kirk to stop talking about the damn Starship Enterprise (even though it’s majestic and we love it) and start spilling his darkest secrets + bonding at a deep emotional level with the nearest found family.
This was one of those books where if you’ve read the first half, you’ve read the entire thing. It’s sweet and fun! But that’s really all it is (my personality as a college student). The characters are constantly involved in some sort of action, like running from authorities, and that’s the entire book.
However, I did like how there was a bi love triangle! We get a Disaster Gay protagonist, not knowing if he should date his male or female friend because both are highly attractive and comforting. And miraculously, both are in love with his pretty face. We’ve all been THERE once or twice, amirite? just kidding, no one will date me.
+ the found family is THERE even if you never get to know them/feel their undying affection for one another. I cherished every moment that they bodily leaned into one another for support!!!!!! JUST GIVE ME ALL THE PLATONIC CUDDLING THANKS.
Overall, this is a great book for when you want a cheesy adventure in space + lots of action. If you don’t really give a shit about character building, and you just want a silly and charming MC who darts around dangerous obstacles, then you’ll enjoy this. C: c: c:

This is a super fun read. Readers get a great look at the anxiety and fear of a young pilot coming into their own. They're surrounded by others in similar states, but with vastly different externalizations of similar fears and needs fears.
Plus romance... and some cursing.
There are tons of easter eggs to be found in the richly written worlds (yeah, that's plural). If you're anything like me, there will be plenty of points where you smile and nod at the book saying, "I know that one!" The tipping point of the story is a downhill sprint to the finish. I was almost as white knuckled as our daring heroes.
