She was born to kill, born to die.
Crescent is a crowhoppera genetically modified mercenary programmed for ruthless warfare. When shes taken prisoner by Crater Trueblood instead of being killed in battle, she thinks its a disaster.
Crater is weary of war. Hes a miner, not a soldier. Hed rather be mining Helium-3 than battling the infernal crowhoppers. But after he captures Crescent and brings her to Moontown, hes surprised how much he enjoys her company. When shes falsely accused of murder, he becomes an outlaw to help her escape.
The unlikely pair escapes into the "big suck" and wind up trekking with a caravan of mining pioneers toward a lunar ghost town called Endless Dust. To survive, they must do more than navigate the beautiful, desolate moonscape and battle a persistent band of crowhoppers sent to capture or kill them. They must decide whatand whois truly worth fighting for.
