Publisher's Summary

A Duchy of Terra spin-off series.

Fifty thousand years ago, the Precursors broke the universe. Now, great powers and small alike fight over their wreckage.

But in the midst of the chaos, there is a question no one asks: why?

Morgan Casimir, commander of the A!Tol Imperial cruiser Defiant, has seen the works of the Precursor aliens known as the Alava. She has seen their accidents threaten worlds and consume entire star fleets. Charged by her empress to prevent a conspiracy of profiteers from finding and using a lost fleet of Alava warships, she knows unimaginable catastrophe looms if she fails. With her lover, xenoarcheologist Dr. Rin Dunst, at her side, she is sent to a hot zone on the edge of war to once again achieve the impossible.

But as they search along a border flaring in violence, Morgan discovers that if the worst comes to pass, her orders are to destroy the ships rather than allow them to be taken...and she realizes that there just might be a reason seemingly godlike aliens lost an entire fleet.

Love every second

Nice story. Slightly over the top scalewise but very well written. I had to stop myself inhaling all of it in one sitting.

Now I am sad I have to wait a year for the next in the series.

a softer more accepting star trek

a pc bus hitting a snow flake. I dont know what happened to the series it was a little cheesy starting off but interesting. but now it's just preachy and self righteous.

This book gives me halo flashbacks

Really enjoyed the story but it seems a lot like the forerunner and the flood from halo added into the series

Another Barn Burner!

Definitely not a stand-alone novel. I am happily prepared to go back 3 or 4 books to re-listen, partly to better understand the context and partly for the sheer exhilaration. I really like the narrator she has a great voice, not saying it's make or break but she can read technical data and make it sound fresh.

Good addition to the story line

I did enjoy the story and feel it’s a worthy installment to the series........but Hillary Huber’s permanently glib voice is really starting to bother me. To be fair the series would not be as good without her..... but she need another mode other than glibness. I will purchase the next in the series.
