Captain Lana Fiveworlds has a hell of a lot of problems.
She’s sliding void in an ageing seven-hundred-year-old space ship, scrabbling around the edges of civilised space trying to find a cargo lucrative enough to pay her bills without proving so risky that it’ll kill her. She’s got an alien religious freak for a navigator, an untrustworthy android for a first mate, a disgraced lizard for a trade negotiator and a deserter from the fleet acting as her chief engineer.
And that was well before an ex-crewman turns up wanting Lana to rescue a barbarian prince from a long-failed colony world.
Unfortunately for Lana, the problems she doesn’t know about are even more dangerous. In fact, they just might be enough to destroy Lana’s rickety but much-loved vessel, the Gravity Rose, and jettison her and her crew into the void without a spacesuit.
But there’s one thing you can never tell an independent space trader. That’s the odds…
A gripping and thought-provoking adventure through the vast expanse of space. The story follows a trading crew on the make on the edge of the galaxy. As they venture deeper into the void they encounter strange and dangerous phenomena including bizarre creatures and unexplainable events. The tension and suspense build steadily throughout the book as the crew struggle to survive and uncover the truth an odd world. An exciting and thought-provoking read that will keep you engaged from start to finish if youre a fan of science fiction.
