This sci-fi fantasy adventure introduces the worlds of Rigil Kent, where the back-engineering of alien artifacts booms economies and enigmatic cultures clash on the verge of war.

Jace, a trader and sometimes smuggler, finds himself shanghaied into running a mission for a ruling dynasty of the “spider folk”, members of New Earth’s rival faction.

The mission takes him to the alien world of Matdu—the original home of the mysterious First Race—where a red dwarf sun presides over a half-lit world chock-full of arcane treasure.

Enlisting the service of a Matdu native, a tempting bounty hunter by the name of Nyx, Jace quickly finds himself running from secret “spider” police and simultaneously becoming the reluctant beneficiary of a cockeyed Matduian myth.

Faced with the results of a genetic experiment gone horribly wrong, a system-wide infiltration of a long-dead alien race, and a cold war about to turn hot, Jace soon discover what it means to “have the luck”.
