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.Thoughts on Angle of Truth: MOAR JELENA AND THOR AND THE REST OF THE CREW! *cheers*
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?
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?
I CAN HOPE!
