Birdie Blackwell has always believed she was human. But when she illegally uses magic to transport a government-funded spaceship across the Neodromedan galaxy, she’s suddenly aware that there might be something not-quite-human about her ancestry. Before she can delve deeper into the mystery surrounding her abilities, Birdie is placed under arrest by the Nova’s zombie captain.
The sentence, if convicted of her crime against the Neodromedan government? Death.
There’s no escape from Birdie’s fate - except the air lock, of course. Now, with the help of an unlikely group of misfits, including a magical robot and a mechanic fond of pranks, Birdie must find a way to avoid execution and fulfill her dream of becoming the greatest galactic cartographer Neodromeda’s ever seen.
