Summary

The Streams bind together the vast reaches of the stellar tributary, plied by brave streamsurfers and their telepathic starbeasts. Some of these adventurers are heroes. Some are rogues. And some just want to return from the void with their bodies and minds unbroken....

Kerin thon Talisien is the heir to a legendary name. When he was a young boy, his grandfather swooped down from the stars and rescued him from the slums of his homeworld. But with the death of the infamous old streamsurfer, Kerin and his crew have fallen on hard times, exiled from the Starfarers Guild and forced to take on risky contracts in the shadowy margins of the stellar tributary. A strange encounter in a glimmer den offers a chance at redemption and glory...but the stakes are high, with the fate of the Known potentially hanging in the balance.

Outstanding SciFi Fantasy

The world-building continues throughout the story and is excellent. The characters are well-developed and you come to love each one more and more to the final scene. The story-line is imaginative and reminiscent of Firefly but with powers that border on "magic." Alec Hutson (author), this is an outstanding piece of work. Thank you for sharing it with me. Lastly, the narration in the Audible version is excellent as it covers males and females of different species, space "creatures" and even a "broken" child.
