For the crew of the Keiko, their stay at the Grand House casino on New Samara was supposed to be a well-deserved rest.
It didn’t last.
Captain Ichabod Drift promised that the side-trip to the mining planet Uragan would be a quick in and out – a data retrieval job then back to the tables.
He was wrong.
When the revolution comes, all you can do is choose a side and hope to get out alive.
I love the chance to dive into the distant future, to spend times with characters that are trying to find their own way to earn a living and discover that the more advanced we think we are, the closer to the past we are. It’s dark, has some light moments within and with a crew (almost firefly like) that you learn to care about, generates a story that will keep you glued with solid action.
Add to this good use of pace as well as good use of plot twists, all round means that you’ll be in for a treat. Cracking.
