Hi, I'm new here and this is kind of a test run. My query isn't a rough draft, but it is just the core plot without any of the author bio etc. Your help is much appreciated. Kira always dreamed of living the outlaw life among the stars, but she was an otherwise normal fifteen-year-old when pirates came to her backwater planet. A stolen pirate ship was all Kira needed to escape, but jumping to an unknown system came at terrible price: leaving her beloved friend Heather to an uncertain fate. Now, after two years of smuggling, dogfights, and heists, Kira’s seen enough to know you take what the galaxy gives you. And she’s just been given Queen Cassandra du’Kisetria and her son Charles. Naïvely attacking Kira in a lawless stretch of space, the nobles violate a treaty and put a bounty on all their heads. Just trying to do the right thing, Kira pays a slaver to smuggle the unfortunate pair to safety. But it doesn’t take long for her to remember Heather, and realize she’s just abandoned two more people to the whims of an uncaring universe. Kira sets out to find Charles and Cassandra to see them to safety, but in so doing finds herself involved in a conspiracy by the family’s powerful political rivals. What’s more, the pirates from Kira’s past are back, and they want revenge. Armed only with her stolen ship, a revolver, and a dangerous mix of impulse and luck, Kira prepares to face down an entire kingdom to make up for past mistakes.
