Publisher's Summary

Two engineers hijack a spaceship to join some space pirates - only to discover the pirates are hiding from a malevolent AI. Now they have to outwit the AI if they want to join the pirate crew - and survive long enough to enjoy it.
Adda and Iridian are newly minted engineers, but aren't able to find any work in a solar system ruined by economic collapse after an interplanetary war. Desperate for employment, they hijack a colony ship and plan to join a famed pirate crew living in luxury at Barbary Station, an abandoned shipbreaking station in deep space.
But when they arrive there, nothing is as expected. The pirates aren't living in luxury - they're hiding in a makeshift base welded onto the station's exterior hull. The artificial intelligence controlling the station's security system has gone mad, trying to kill all station residents and shooting down any ship that attempts to leave - so there's no way out.
Adda and Iridian have one chance to earn a place on the pirate crew: destroy the artificial intelligence. The last engineer who went up against the AI met an untimely end, and the pirates are taking bets on how the newcomers will die. But Adda and Iridian plan to beat the odds. There's a glorious future in piracy...if only they can survive long enough.

Great start

The first book of series gets off to a good star. Adda and Iridian make a great couple as they battle a psychotic AI on a old space station.

Flags a bit in the middle but the climax is action packed.

Narration was good.
