       Additional Information  
     
      Family-Freedom-Future Frontier Orphaned by a brutal raid on a colony ship, young Kylee is alone in the universe. But, she finds a new family: a bounty hunter, a psychopathic alien, a professional duelist, and a big game hunter, his wife and their twin sons. They're an odd mix...but family is what you make it. When one man's greed threatens the Frontier, her new family stands in his way. Helped by a smuggler-turned-gambling magnate and the surviving members of the Fifth Acadian Militia, they're about to teach a few lessons about what it means to be part of the Frontier and maybe get a little payback, too. Doc Smith space opera with a sizable helping of H. Rider Haggard and Max Brand, Calamity's Child delivers larger-than-life characters, exotic settings from deep space to the veldts of a new Africa, and enough action to satisfy a two-ton alien. The real currency of the Frontier isn't guns or money. It's loyalty.
