ADOPTED CHILD by t. santitoro
Imp, now 13, has awakened from stasis by MA, the ship’s computer, to find that everyone else has been killed by a highly infectious disease. She is alone on the ship. But she is about to have visitors.
The Greentown, a salvage ship, has spotted a derelict and is about to board her for salvage rights. The crew is blissfully unaware of what happened to the people on the derelict. Soon enough they will find out...but will it be too late? And what of the girl who now controls the derelict?
To everyone involved, everything is new...and potentially lethal.
