By six,he was a wounded soul, fending for himself in a desolate refugee camp, and still a child when the pirates found him.

Released from jail, but on a leash to the government, Yuri is more trapped than ever. Controlled by men even more ruthless than the brigands he’s ordered to betray, Yuri is back again in deep space where his survival depends on a dangerous act: trusting a stranger’s offer of help.
