A Cinder's Tale
Story #4 in the Five Glass Slippers anthology
by: Stephanie Ricker
Life as a cendrillon miner at Tremaine Station is full of soot and peril, and when a legendary fleet captain and his son dock their frigate at the space station, Elsa allows herself to rekindle dreams of voyaging far from her work on the seething surface of planet Aschen. There is no time for dreaming, however, when danger threatens the station, and Elsa and her fellow miners will need every ounce of their skill and courage to survive.
