A ragtag crew of humans and posthumans discover alien technology that could change the fate of humanity… or awaken an ancient evil and destroy all life in the galaxy.

The shady crew of the White Raven run freight and salvage at the fringes of our solar system. They discover the wreck of a centuries-old exploration vessel floating light years away from its intended destination and revive its sole occupant, who wakes with news of First Alien Contact. When the crew break it to her that humanity has alien allies already, she reveals that these are very different extra-terrestrials… and the gifts they bestowed on her could kill all humanity, or take it out to the most distant stars.

  • Needs better rating

    By Craig-Dallas
    I like a good space opera, but there is too much of a focus on lesbian sex fantasies and careful references to genderqueer, binary, etc. please rate this book as a queer soft porn story if that is what you are writing.
  • End?

    By John Frosted
    Nice space opera. Doesn’t telegraph where it’s going in the first few pages, so the story was mostly a surprise. Still, it ended quickly. There is definitely a chance here for a continuing story, but not sure if they are going that way. But it that sequel is written it will be one of those stories where a small team of rag tag hero’s with no resources take down a intergalactic menace. Gee, where have I heard that one before? The best thing about this first? book is that that direction was not obvious till the last chapter. I can only hope that the author keeps us guessing in future. Good characters, interesting tech, bad guys with a believable back story. All in all a good read
  • Excellent Book

    By cgarylopez
    Love the writers style. Keep it moving like a Clive Cussler novel, but with an edge. The heroines are bi-sexual, trans-sexual and bionic. What you would expect the future to be. As a writer myself I enjoy a book that keeps you turning the pages. This is a good one. Can't wait for the next installment.

    Tastefully written, nicely closed with an opening for further novels in the series. Unfortunately this is first of new series so need to wait for next book. Hopefully soon!
