Iridian and Adda have a plan – they’ll hijack an interstellar space station en route to Io and deliver it to a band of pirates living in luxury on the fabled Barbary Station, then get paid enough to live their own luxurious lives and pay off Adda’s student loans. Hijacking the ship goes smoothly enough, but when the women arrive at Barbary, rather than find themselves lauded and initiated into a pirate crew, they’re met with suspicion and immediately tasked to rescue the crew (and now themselves) from the insane AI holding the station hostage.
Lesbian space pirates versus a murderous AI? Sign me the hell up! The result left me feeling conflicted, however. Buckle up!
