Evasion (Scattered Stars: Evasion Book 1) Kindle Edition
A girl on the run from the trap of her present
A ship that will bring them together
Captain Evridiki “EB” Bardacki was once a nova fighter pilot for a nation he truly believed in. Betrayal and failure sent him into exile and flight. Now owner-operator of the freelance star freighter Evasion, he treks the edge of human space, taking cargos that lead him ever onward—but there are lines he will not cross.
When those lines are challenged, EB makes enemies of the most powerful crime syndicate for a hundred light-years. When one of their victims stows away on his ship, he finds himself pursued by an enemy with assets everywhere he turns.
Caught between the devil and the deep dark void, EB has run out of places to run—but in a child looking to him for salvation, he may have found something to fight for!
CONTENT WARNING: This novel deals with themes and details of human trafficking and sexual exploitation.

The Beyond, the outer reaches of human space where the strong, the clever and the quick survive - until they meet someone stronger, quicker or more clever. This is where EB flies his freighter, trying to earn a living for himself and his crew. Each of the crew is running away from something. EB is running from Brisingr assassins who have targeted every ace in the Apollo 303 Nova Strike Group. He is hoping to lose himself in the Beyond. That’s not all EB is running from.
This is a great start to a new series in the Scattered Stars universe. A story where a freighter captain and crew come to the realization that you can’t run forever and find something worth fighting and possibly dying for. Nice plot twists, great characters and plenty of action in this dark story from the Beyond where the worst and best of humanity struggle to survive.
I received an ARC for my review and I purchased my own copy to support the author.
The initial rejection of military force and service by many of the characters in this cycle makes the early part of the novel come move more slowly than many of Glynn Stewarts other works, but it also allows him space and time to develop the new cast of characters.
However by the end you are pulling for EB and the Evasion's crew. And as always Glynn Stewart give you plenty to speculate over as the storyline continues forward.
However, in this spinoff from the Scattered Stars: Conviction series, we actually get a somewhat decent character in EB. He's not all that good. He's a bit of a coward, and more broken than I think makes for a truly interesting character, but when he's pushed into a corner he stands up for the right in an entertaining way.
This is a low four star tale. It has flaws, but was still interesting and definitely leaves me interested in the possibilities in the next book in this series.
I am VERY much looking forward to reading what comes next for EB, Trace, Vexer, and the crew as the make their way onward hoping to finally leave the ghosts that haunt them behind.
Evasion follows the same pattern, even though set in the same universe as the Scattered Stars series - except, it expands into the details as to how the "headwear" works - the ability to manipulate software and hardware with and within your brain. In the other series, it just works - this book goes into the how of how it works. Brilliant!

You can read this without reading the other scattered stars series, but it does help. It also is well recommended.
Evasion picks up some time later - and is a very different story! It's an amazing read. The characters and relationships are fascinating; the science fiction is solid; the conflicts are involved -- and the villains are villains. The cast is diverse and interesting, and the little touches that humanize them are incredible. While the universe itself is less than optimistic - and the background from Conviction tells us a good deal of why - the little things show how good some of the people are.
