Synopsis (Goodreads):
When Jelena Marchenko learns that her parents have incurred a huge debt due to her previous actions, she’s determined to find a way to pay it off. But running cargo doesn’t pay anything off quickly. She comes up with a scheme to turn herself and her eclectic crewmates into mercenaries, at least for long enough to make some money.

Unfortunately, Jelena has no interest in maiming, killing, or otherwise tormenting people, the typical things mercenaries are hired to do. She’s relieved when, with Prince Thorian’s help, she finds a mission that seems perfectly suited to her team: rescuing prisoners of war.

But what was supposed to be a quick way to earn money soon turns into something devastating and deadly. Caught between two sides in a war fueled by centuries of resentment, Jelena must choose between her needs and the needs of a planet. No matter which choice she makes, she risks her ship and the lives of her team. Does she truly have what it takes to be a mercenary?
Thoughts on Angle of Truth: MOAR JELENA AND THOR AND THE REST OF THE CREW! *cheers*

Now, I'm not sure Alisa and Leonidas are cheering over Jelena's antics the way I am. Because, you know, they're paying for those antics. Sure, sure, the Snapper was sort of in a tough spot when Jelena incurred the charges that put her in hot water with her folks, but fines are fines, amirite?

Anyway. Due to a previous unfortunate incident, Jelena (and crew) have to find a way to bring in some quick cash. Jelena--the woman who can't walk away from a person in need--decides the Snapper is going to try it's hand at mercenaring. Which is clearly a word. Her mercenary endeavors go just about as well as you'd imagine given she made a side trip to rescue animals being experimented on during her first cargo run as captain.

So, yeah. She and Thor and the others find themselves in something of a pickle. Jelena has to learn to harden her heart a bit while Thorian needs to ... uhh, unbend, maybe. The guy is kinda focused on following a path that doesn't seem to be doing his mental well being all that much good. Although, the fact he's sticking around with Jelena and the Snapper might be saying a lot.

I can hope, right?
