When you''re a privateer, running a starship is a family business. For Tycho Hashoone, his twin sister, Yana, and their older brother, Carlo, the family business is far from easy.
They have to please the Jovian Union, a coalition of planets against Earth that keeps the Hashoones employed. They have to dodge the odious Earth diplomats and the dreaded Jupiter pirates. But hardest of all, the siblings must impress their mother, Captain Diocletia Hashoone, who keeps a log of how they perform on every test, simulation, and mission. Because while the three siblings might be crew members together aboard theShadow Comet, only one of them can be the next ship captain.
Talk about sibling rivalry.
Part high-seas adventure, part space-age epic, the Jupiter Pirates is a wholly original saga about a galaxy on the brink of war and one unforgettable family caught in the middle of it.
