Summary

Long ago, the Builders ruled the stars, using a unique super-science to create marvels and wonders. But the Builders vanished - no one knows why - leaving many of their treasures hidden throughout the galaxy.

Now, Captain Maddox and arrogant New Men learn about the fabled Library Planet. Legend holds it’s an ancient repository of Builder knowledge. The side that plunders the planetary vaults first will surely become the premier power in the Orion Spiral Arm.

The race is on, but with many unforeseen dangers including deadly ghost-ships, possible time-travelers, and cunning spies - others desire what lies inside the Library Planet.

This will prove a desperate struggle as puny humans led by Captain Maddox try to wrench an advantage for Star Watch, and as a grim menace of unparalleled horror slowly unfolds before them. The Lost Secret is the 14th book in the Lost Starship Series.

Last book in this Series for me

I have listen to all the books in this series, but I suspect this will be the last one for me. While Marks performance is good (as always), he has not been given a lot to work with here. The storyline has moved from space Sci-fi to space superstition/religion/gut feeling powers with, in this book, no explanation on how things are connected. Gone are the high tech space battles and hand to hand combat scenes where grid, planning and the right tech wins the day.

Another thing that has been bothering me (throughout the entire series) is the reintroduction of all the characters in each book. It gets old quick and becomes something you just want to get over with each time a known character enters the storyline in the new book.

Awesome: thought provoking and entertaining

Awesome, thought provoking and entertaining as always, love the series and the flaws in the characters: Heppner does a great job suspending reality

Very intensive, indepth storyline, great adventure

I really enjoyed the series, it was attentive to detail explanation of space travel, AU, explanation of different parallels and time travel. The characters became real after a few of the books and I went along for the ride. Absolutely astounding writing, kudos Vaughn and Mark. A great team, thank you for the adventure.
