Publisher's Summary

"Just once I'd like to fly into a system where everyone doesn't want to kill us."

Tanis Richards has spent half her life on the Intrepid, guiding the great colony ship, and its two million passengers, across hundreds of light-years. She has risked life, limb, and those dearest to her to get this far.

Now she's within reach of her goal; the New Canaan System, and a normal, stable life. The kind she's only dreamed about. The only remaining hurdle is to strike a deal with the Transcend Alliance and trade the Intrepid's advanced technology for the star system.

If only things were so easy. The Intrepid's arrival has upset the delicate balance of power between the Transcend, the Orion Guard, and the Inner Stars.

Everything Tanis has ever hoped for is at risk as she fights to build the colony of New Canaan amidst the looming specter of war.

    "Just good fun and a wild ride!"

    Really really really enjoyed this book. I like the way M D Cooper writes. Different narrator. Frustrating when that happens. Not quite as good as the previous one. But if you like science-based fiction you will really enjoy this book!

    "A Disappointing Return to the Series"

    It was several months before we were able to return to this series, and I was excited to see it back. Unfortunately it pains me to say that this is a let down. Instead of eating it up as fast as I could, I had to stop listening halfway through.

    Firstly, Cris Dukehart is not Khristine Hvam, and I'm fairly sure this was a large reason there was a delay getting this book to Audible. Hvam was great all around, but Dukehart struggles. Too much overacting, unnatural inflection, and trying way too hard to give characters outlandish accents, especially with male characters. She'd do much better concentrating on reading naturally and fluidly instead of throwing her voice so much.

    Unfortunately the writing this time around does not do much to help. The first half or more of the book is inconsequential to the plot, and is filled with cliche dialogue. It even includes a completely pointless and contrived "forced into arena fighting" chapter. I expected more from Cooper.

    It kills me to say it but I might have to bail on the series. The drop in writing I may just be a temporary lull, but it appears the narrative switch is here to stay. It's a sizable and unfortunate step down from before that makes me can't help but cringe. Maybe I'll pick it up again in text form, but for now my heart is broken.

    "Not bad to much focus on relationships"

    This time around is a lot on bisexual homosexual and heterosexual relationship's which if left out would not affect the store what so ever. The only reason I could see this filler is to make the store fit in to a set number of pages. Otherwise I do like the story and the plot, just needs less fluff.
