An Alliance prison is no place for a deaf teen girl. Fortunately, Starla doesn’t intend to stay for long. Starla Dusai is fifteen, deaf — and being held as an enemy combatant by the Indiran Alliance. Willem Jaantzen is a notorious crime lord about to end a fearsome vendetta — and most probably his life. When he learns his goddaughter has been captured by the Alliance, he understands he’s her only hope. But saving a girl he barely knows means letting his wife’s murderer walk free. Will Jaantzen be able to put aside his anger before Starla’s time runs out?STARFALL is a standalone novella in Jessie Kwak’s Bulari Saga, a fast-paced series of standalone gangster sci-fi stories set in a far-future world where humans may have left their home planet to populate the stars, but they haven’t managed to leave behind their vices. And that’s very good for business.For fans of Firefly, the Godfather, and the Expanse.
