The Sound of Letting Go
A feeling of cold emptiness had taken up residence, filling Jexx’s chest as if she would never be warm again. She had lost everything; her commission, her mate, her hatchlings, her home, and perhaps even soon her life. The chains on her wrists bit sharply as the prisoner attached to her left side tasted the warden’s whip. Jexx frowned as the youngling chocked back a cry. Her sharp kick to the warden’s jaw was punished harshly but well worth it.
Forn Tal Trillen comes along with an offer for Jexx, a new life in a new galaxy. One daring improvised prison break later and she begins her life of “nearly” criminal enterprise.
Captain Cassidy Poole
Thanks to one of Forn’s schemes, The Suicide King winds up in a scrap with Rangare fighters. Jexx gives Cassidy some insightful lessons in dogfighting this enemy, and soon the pilot is flying circles around his opponents.
