The second original novel from the much-missed Space Western Firefly, produced with Joss Whedon as consulting editor, set between the TV series and the movie Serenity.
A cosmic cry for help
Captain Mal Reynolds is in a fix. He'd like nothing more than to find honest smuggling work that stays under the Alliance's radar and keeps the good ship Serenity in the sky. But when an old flame of Jayne Cobb's sends a desperate plea across the galaxy, his crew has other ideas.
A cut-throat bandit
On the arid, far-flung world of Thetis, the terrifying Elias Vandal is threatening to overrun the town of Coogan's Bluff with his trigger-happy army. He wants control of the only thing standing between its people and dustbowl ruin: their water supply.
The Magnificent Nine
When the crew land at the hardscrabble desert outpost, they discover two things: a savage outlaw gang who will stop at nothing to get what they want, and that Jayne's former girlfriend, Temperance, is singlehandedly raising a teenage daughter, born less than a year after she and Jayne parted ways. A daughter by the name of Jane McCloud...

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
For a brief time I was back on my most favorite place, Serenity. The book felt true.
This is the second in the new Firefly series that has recently come out. An ex-girlfriend of Jayne's has reached out to Serenity for help. Bandits are on their planet hoarding the water and it is getting desperate for the rest of the people; they need water to survive. The Serenity crew agree to go and help, when they get there they discover Jayne's ex-girlfriend has a daughter named Jane. A daughter who would be the correct age for when they were together. Oh, this was another fun one. It's almost like having another Firefly episode to watch. It was a good story and so nice to have another story with the characters from the show. I'm looking forward to reading the next one in the series when it comes out and I hope they continue to write more. They are well done and I have really enjoyed them so far.
Damn you for making me cry...but thank you all the same. God how I wish there was more.
