Publisher Comments:

The third novel in The Shoal Sequence space opera series continues on from Stealing Light and Nova War

The nova war is spreading as the Emissaries wage a fierce and reckless campaign, encroaching on the area of space occupied by humanity and forcing the Shoal into a desperate retreat. While Dakota Merrick goes in search of the entity responsible for creating the Maker caches, Corso, left in charge of a fleet of human-piloted Magi ships, finds his authority crumbling in the face of assassination attempts and politically-motivated sabotage. If any hope exists at all, it lies in an abandoned asteroid 1,000 light-years beyond the Consortium's borders, and with Ty Whitecloud, the only man alive with the skill to decipher the messages left behind by an ancient race of star travelers. But Whitecloud is locked in a prison cell aboard a dying coreship adrift in space, awaiting execution for war crimes against Corso's own people. For humanity to survive, Corso must find some way to keep Whitecloud alive—and that's only if Dakota doesn't kill him first.

Synopsis:

A breathtaking stand-alone novel in the same universe as The Shoal Sequence, this is far-future drama at its most thrilling

Pilot Megan Jacinth has three goals, and they all seem unattainable. She must find her friend Bash, who shed left for dead to save her own life. Then she needs Bashs unique skill-set to locate an ancient space-faring entity. Lastly she must use this Wanderers knowledge to save human-occupied worlds from an alien incursion. The odds seem impossible, but the threat is terrifyingly real. Megan finds Bash, but the person shed known and loved is a husk of his former self. Bash is also held captive by her greatest enemy: Gregor Tarrant. Tarrant wants the Wanderer too, even more than he wants her life, with motives less pure than her own. And hes close to finding Megans most closely-guarded secret. A race across space to reach the Wanderer seems Megans best option. But this entity is also known as the Marauder, and is far from benign. The price for its secrets may be just too high. Megan should know, as she still bears the scars from their last encounter.
