“My name is #1001, and I am not ready to die.” I’d only just begun to live.

When Captain Caleb Shepperd is released from prison, all he wants to do is keep his head down and earn a living smuggling illegal cargo through the nine systems. So when a synth stows away on his ship, and brings with her a crap-ton of problems, including guilt-ridden secrets he thought he’d escaped, he’d prefer to toss her out the airlock. The problem is, she’s priceless tech, and he’s fresh out of credit.

#1001 is not meant to exist. Created for a single purpose, she has one simple order: to kill. But not everything is as it seems. Buried deep inside, she remembers… Remembers when she was human. And she remembers what Shepperd did to her. She’s not ready to die, but she is ready to kill.

From the bestselling author of the Veil Series comes an action packed story of love, redemption, and revenge.

Pippa DaCosta captures the grit and realism of her urban fantasy stories and injects it, along with some down-and-dirty passion, into the sci-fi genre.

***Kat – #NerdGirlParanormal’s  Review***
wow I’ve not read a sci fi themed book in a long time, and this one was a good one to get back in the saddle.

I used to believe stars were wishes, that if we reached them, our dreams would come true. But the stars will always be out of reach, and no amount of dreaming will capture them. I wish … I wish we had more time. I wish we had forever. I wish you loved me. Don’t let me go

this haunting quote taunts both of our main characters, and as the story unfolds we see that there are no cut and dried heroes in this tale. It’s a rip roaring journey through the solar system with a ‘Fixer’ who may just have a little hero spark inside his vacant heart.

#1001 The runaway ‘Synth’ who is malfunctioning is intrigued by the captain of the ‘Starscream’ and as they jump through the galaxy trying to avoid the authorities… but what will she do when she finally remembers the truth… will she complete her mission?

I enjoyed every page, and sit impatiently waiting for book 2 to see what happens next.
