Ariana Rumala has inherited her father's fluxship, Big Top. For her first voyage, Rumala has called back the old crew, some of the strangest non-humans she's ever met.
Rumala has scored the crew a lucrative first contract: to transport one of the richest children in the known universe. If everything goes as planned, this will pay off her debts. A bit of sublight travel, one flux jump to Pavo Station, deliver the cargo, pay the crew, and Rumala could be in the black.
But flux is unpredictable. Ships can end up where they aren't supposed to be.
Can Rumala get the ship to its destination, hold together a diverse crew, and deliver the cargo, all before the debts come due?
