Two sisters ran away from home to join the crew of a spaceship. They took on pirates, faced down monsters and survived massacres...and now they're in charge. Captaining a fearsome ship of their own, adventures are theirs for the taking. But Captain Bosa's fearsome reputation still dogs their heels, and they're about to discover that, out in space, no one forgives, and no one forgets....

Critic reviews

"A swashbuckling thriller - Pirates of the Caribbean meets Firefly - that nevertheless combines the author's trademark hard SF with effective, coming-of-age characterisation." (Guardian)

"A blindingly clever imagining of our solar system in the far flung future." (Sun)

"A rollicking adventure yarn with action, abduction, fights, properly scary hazards, very grisly torture and even ghosts of a sort." (Daily Telegraph)

Great ending to this trilogy

I’m a big fan of Alastair Reynolds and his work - as the content of my audible plainly shows - and this was a thoroughly enjoyable romp sometime a long way into a possible future. My only disappointment was realising that there would be no fourth book.

Satisfying story as good as the proceeding two books in the series

Clare Corbett continues her excellent narration. The conclusion of the trilogy is satisfying. Great fun.
