I've read this book for free, and I returned to pay for it.
This is a story about treachery in space. The pace of the story is great, and the author really makes you root for the characters. There are sad bits in there too, but without giving away too much, the author doesn't fall into the trap of not having any of the main characters / good guys suffer.
AJ Asher, thanks for sharing such a wonderful work with everyone. I truly enjoyed it the first time around, and will look forward to reading it again.
