Shipped off to Polar Prep Fleet Academy, Casey grieves the death of her mother while struggling to find a place among her peers.
She hates it. Why did her father have to send her away? It feels like he doesn't love her anymore.
With the memory of her mom festering like a raw wound, Casey's experience at school goes from bad to worse when she stands up to Renata Spector, the most popular girl in school.
People at Polar Prep are not what they seem, and the only one looking out for Casey is herself. To survive Renata's torments, and keep her fragile existence from tumbling down around her ears, Casey has to be braver than she's ever been.
Or risk losing herself altogether.
Raptor is a tale of becoming and bravery, of a young woman finding herself and learning the difference between right and wrong. This is a standalone novella in the Relics of the Ancients space opera universe about the formative years of one of the bravest starfighter pilots in the Solaran Fleet.
