Publisher's Summary

An industrial hell. The foulest and most decrepit slum on Parsephon. A nest of human misery, where hope is word long forgotten, and the dead are carted away every day. It is the worst pit in the Confederation’s great industrial machine known as the Iron Belt.  

Among the millions born into misery, poverty, and despair under the dark and smoky haze that covers the planet, Andromeda Lafarge is unique. One lost soul among billions, she is tough, relentless, determined to get out, to escape, to blaze her own trail, and to make a name for herself across the stars.   

Andi will break the chains binding her to a life of destitution, leave the Gut and Parsephon behind forever, and plunge into the dark and deadly worlds of the lost empire, prospecting for imperial artifacts, the bits and pieces of old tech that can make her rich. She will find new friends - and enemies - on the frontier, and she will blaze a trail from the filthy, polluted Iron Belt world of her birth to the dead and haunted imperial planets of the Badlands.  

She will fight, endure hardships unimaginable, save comrades...and lose some, too. She will struggle to amass wealth, to do whatever is necessary to ensure she will never again be helpless, and she will bring back the technology of the ancients, scraps of mankind’s lost legacy, to do it.  

She will create a name for herself among the rough and tumble adventurers who ply the rogue trade in ancient tech. For some, she will become one to emulate, to follow. To others, her name will become the foulest of curses. She will make her way, blade and pistol in hand, from one dead and ancient world to another.

Jay Allan Doesn’t Disappoint!

You will love this history of Andi LaFarge! From gutter rat to well, you’ll find out! And just how she came into possession of her ship! Sadness and fury underscore her journey and coming of age. You won’t want to miss it! The narrator does a great job, too!

ok story.

Hard to finish. The main character keeps talking in her way too much. Then in the heat if the moment she knows how to defeat the hardest military delta force Engineered to win, especially being a gutter rat.

I would avoid

Funny that this book is so much worse than the blood on the stars series. Now I have to say I have listened to several books with a female narrator and I have never like them. It is the same here, it is possible that Jeffey Kaffer may have made the book more interesting but I am not sure.

I will not be downloading the 2nd book this one was painful enough and I found myself fast forwarding through many chapters.

A great yarn

This is what Honor Harrington would have been had she been born a street rat. Sorry for the comparison to another authors character but with Allyson Johnson Narrating it is kind of hard not to. Allyson's narration is great as usual at least for me she is one of my favorite Narrators. Jay Allan has started a new series for me to follow, so I can see many credits of mine going to Mr. Allan over the next few years. Enjoy!

I like the store and would like more.

I would like to get more books faster than 6 mouths to a year, it is hard to wait so long.

Relentless

This is the story of Andi Lafarge; her roots and her sheer determination to drag herself from the Gut, the hell that is Parsephone, the pit of the Confederation, to become the person that captures the heart of Tyler Barron. But there will be many struggles beforehand and with her relentless pursuit of her goal, nothing is going to stand in her way.

I loved this first book of the spin-off better than I thought I would. Jay Allan is such a prolific writer that I don't know how he keeps up with it all, but please keep doing what you are doing.
