I read this book years ago, working graveyard at Kmart to pay my way through college, so when I saw it available as a ebook at Fictionwise, I bought it and read it. It's pretty cool sci-fi. It tells the story of a young woman named Rissa that grows up in a corporate-oligarchic world but escapes to the outer planets to lead a resistance against the powers that be. On some levels its pretty dated, technologically and politically, but it's still good writing and a good story. It's the first book of a trilogy.
