Publisher's Summary

Captain Alisa Marchenko finally has a lead on finding her daughter, but her passengers want her to take them on their quest instead. Even though the Star Nomad is her ship, they have power she cannot fight, and she finds herself with no choice but to accept another detour.

But the ancient relic they seek has the ability to destroy worlds and is coveted by many. The path leading to it is riddled with competitors and littered with the dead, and even a cyborg and a Starseer may not be strong enough to fight the obstacles in the way.

Swept up in a fate she never chose, Alisa must find a way to survive against impossible odds, knowing that if her passengers succeed, they will change the course of history - maybe not for the better.

Good continuation of the story

Character development continues as we learn a little more about the two protagonists. The action scenes are very enjoyable as always. Kate Reading's narration is great. The story moved along quite nicely and I look forward to the next book.

Small plot development / nothing technically new

When the author brought out the staff of power, a six foot long staff with a gem imbedded in one end, It brought back
a memory of the TVs series star gate with the
Ori staff of power. Across the board, all authors are displaying just how difficult
It is in 2017 to come up with new and unused
science / tech and physics concepts.
At least this story has an ongoing banter to fill the void.

Wonderful adventure!

Fast paced adventure, combined with great characters makes this entire series a real treat. Kate Readimg's performance is excellent, as she brings the characters to life in full color. I loved "Relic of Sorrows" and can't wait for the next book, "Cleon Moon".

Excellent story, fun, fast-paced

Loved this installment in the Fallen Empire world. Feeling sad that I'm about halfway through the series. I'm certain I'll listen to the whole thing again.

Frass...but then...

The development of this story is still, in my opinion, random! Worst, the story has devolved into a romance/sex novel, which does not add to the reason I wanted to listen to this story. I was going to stop with this book, but it does have merits. One is the quippy banter between the crew, which can be funny. The other is half the book stays on target with the storyline. I have been fast-forwarding through the bedroom talk, and wish I was reading a printed copy so it would be easier to page forward to story! With that in mind, I will continue on to the next book!

Could not stop listening!

Love all books by Lindsay Buroker, particularly that adventure takes front stage where as romance is there but not taking up so much space. Absolutely my favorite type of book and the author does great. I also really enjoy the narrarator. If I saw a book I liked, her narrarating would be a factor in if I bought it I like her narraration so much.
