Awakened by her father, teenager Jane Benedict is ordered to memorize a mysterious code. Hours later, Mathias Benedict is dead and Jane and her brother, Will, are wards of United Earth Corporation. To evade the company's murderous clutches and uncover the meaning of her father's last message, Jane leads Will on a desperate escape across the galaxy aboard the Freetrader smuggler ship, Solar Vortex. Tangled in the crew's fight for freedom, Jane saves the life of young smuggler, Mac Sawyer, and learns her father's code identifies a secret cargo shipment. The trail leads to the planet Rimrock and the massive prison complex of Golgotha. Undercover as a spy, Jane stumbles into a conspiracy that can spell doom for the entire Freetrader cause and the extinction of an alien race. Can she escape the prison confines and deliver a warning before it's too late?
Piracy, intrigue, romance, space battles, and a daring rebellion from Earth wait on the galactic rim. Will Jane answer the call to adventure and find new purpose, or is death for high treason her fate?

I received this audiobook at no-cost from Audiobookworm Promotions. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
I wasn't sure about this book at the first. It did take me a bit to get hooked but once I was? I did look for free minutes to listen more. The main character, Jane, is a bit of a rule-follower. It's her younger brother, Will, who is the real instigator at first. But Jane begins to find her own feet as the story unfolds.
One thing that I questioned was how fast she and Will trusted the Free Traders. I think just a bit more about that relationship would have made me enjoy the book more.
Still, when I finished this one, I did go looking to see if there were more. It ends on a cliffhanger of sorts with Jane and a new friend going off into the wild unknown. It wasn't a Perils of Pauline cliffhanger so that's good. But enough of one that I did want to hear more.
I was overall pleased with this audiobook.
