Rocket racing can be deadly, but working in food service is worse.
May's humdrum life is flung into hyperdrive when she's abducted, but not all aliens are out to probe her. She's inadvertently rescued by Xan, an "I Love Lucy" obsessed alien with the orangest rocket ship in the universe.
But you still have to eat in space, and rocket racing is a quick, if life-threatening, way to make a living.
Finally, May has a career she loves and a friend to share her winnings with. Until a Chaos goddess possessing Xan's ex decides to start a cult on Earth and threatens to turn the planet into her den of destruction. The Audacity is the only ship fast enough to stop her, but May's no hero. She doesn't even particularly like Earth.
Are we screwed?
