No one warned her about the alien baby.
Captain Cherry Pendit is a very improper oracle. A proper seer warns the hero, then retires to the luxury of her temple while the hero saves the day. Pfft. Boring.
Cherry doesn’t need a hero to defy fate. In fact, she intends to rescue the hero. There might be a few bumps along the way—like an entire alien species her oracular talent didn’t warn her about—but Captain Cherry Pendit of the Delphic Dame is prepared to adapt and overcome.
If only the pirates, the good guys—who might be bad guys—and her allies would just stop freaking interfering by pushing their own stupid agendas. Don’t they realize that if Cherry fails, humanity is doomed?
Salvage is the first book in the Delphic Dame space opera trilogy. It picks up Cherry’s story three years after Nora’s disruption of Human Sector society in the Adventures of a Xeno-Archaeologist series.
