When Captain Lana Fiveworlds seizes on a lucrative contract to fly a rough-and-ready bunch of grave robbers between the worlds of long-extinct civilisations, she’s expecting a nice easy ride for her misfit crew on board the starship Gravity Rose.
After all, those unlucky perished alien species died of climate change, atomic wars, comet strikes, plagues, and mass solar flare ejections thousands, if not millions of years ago.
So, what can go wrong? Plunder a few failed planets for priceless abandoned antiques and lost technologies and make out like an interstellar bandit!
Sadly, the karma of the universe has other ideas – and easy, it surely ain’t. When their troubles slowly mount, Lana, Calder, Zeno, and the other crew members battle for far more than their lives.
The ultimate cost could be more than the captain – or her dear friends and family – can bear.
The story’s world-building is impressive, creating a vivid and imaginative environment that adds to the intrigue and suspense of the plot. The idea of plundering abandoned antiques and lost technologies from failed planets of perished alien species adds to the book’s unique premise. Voyage of the Void Lost is a must-read for fans of space adventures and anyone looking for a thrilling ride through the stars. The book’s fast-paced action, imaginative world-building, and compelling characters make for a gripping and satisfying read that will leave readers eagerly awaiting the next installment in the series.
I found Stephen Hunt’s book Voyage of the Void Lost to be a thrilling adventure through the depths of space. The characters were engaging and the plot was full of unexpected twists and turns that kept me hooked until the very end. I particularly enjoyed the exploration of long-extinct civilizations and the ethical dilemmas that arise when grave robbing becomes the means to an end.
