Overview

Humanity has spread over several star systems, but the technology used to bridge the void conceals a mystery yet to be solved. While society is directed to the agenda of The Circle, its membership pursues advanced biotechnology to ensure their status far into the future. Welcome aboard the SANSSOUCI - the decadent flagship of Trenton Star Lines - where a traumatized heiress seeks to uncover her identity, a space-borne Viking charts the course through the deep, and an inexperienced pilot struggles to safely travel the darkest depths of the human psyche. Over a decade in the making, this compelling debut novel paints a complex picture of humanity's future filled with visceral emotions - and where nothing is what it first seems to be.

I highly recommend this book. I couldn't put it down! On one level, this is pure space opera. It's an exciting adventure with a flawed hero who is so very human that I couldn't help but root for him, a heroine I could really identify with, and a truly villainous villain who would surely have been twirling his mustache if he had one. A couple of times at the beginning of the book, I actually found myself hoping the hero would be even more of an arrogant jerk pilot than he already was, just to get the villain's goat. Before long, with the help of his super cool mutant sidekick, our hero is foiling villainous plots. On another level, it's hard science fiction, and a lot of serious thought has been put into making the world a believable extension of the real world, and the real world's science and social development. The descriptions of how the starship's jump drive works were epiphanous. Many science fiction books present FTL stardrive as requiring a human mind to make it work, usually shown with cyborg implants, but this novel actually presents a theory of how a human mind is necessary to the process, a theory that makes perfect, elegant sense and at the same time is presented in the form of incredible fight scenes on alien worlds that are sure to get your blood pumping. The mutant and biomech cultures both evolved in a way that will please fans of hard sf who might not normally read space opera. This society's political and legal systems were original, well-thought-out, workable, and logical extensions of how democracy might develop in the future. This book is in the hard sf tradition of science fiction written by scientists, the author being an engineer in the space industry. This book can stand alone as a story, but it's clearly the beginning of a series, in the "ends at a beginning" sort of way. I can't wait to read the next installments of this adventure, and see how this delicious cast of characters gets on. Erin Lale Editor of Time Yarns
