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.
