From official release/information:
Crossover was the 1999 breakout novel for Australian Joel Shepherd, and the first Cassandra Kresnov story. "Sandy" is a very humaniform artificial person, with analogues for everything a "straight" or natural human has, except that she's made out of starship alloy and battle-suit muscle and was designed for the express purpose of killing humans in a war between the expansionist/post humanist League and the conservative Federation of old Earth. Sandy's makers made her a bit too bright, and she's figured out that the only way to win at war is not to play the game...but try as she might to fit into civilian society, the game is coming to her. If Hell has no fury greater than a woman scorned, that's just because it hasn't met Cassandra Kresnov yet. Highly Recommended.
