Latest entry in a best-selling space opera series with a huge and active base of fans.

Book 5 in the award-winning Liaden Universe® saga. Stirring space adventure from master storytellers Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. Space ships, action, adventure - all tied together with a strong dollop of romance and intrigue - make this a compelling series for a wide range of readers, from romance to military SF lovers.

First Class courier pilot Theo Waitley was already known as a nexus of violence - and then she inherited the precarious captaincy of a mysterious self-aware ship designed to serve a long dead trader. Now she has a trade route to run for Clan Korval while she convinces the near mythic ghost ship Bechimo - and herself - that she wants to commit herself as the human side to their immensely powerful symbiosis. While her former lover battles a nano-virus that's eating him alive, she's challenged to rescue hundreds of stranded pilots and crewmen from an explosive situation in near orbit around a suddenly hostile planet. Lovers, enemies, an ex-roomie, and a jealous spaceship are all in peril as Theo wields power that no one in the universe is sure of, especially her.

About the Liaden Universe® series:
"Every now and then you come across an author, or in this case, a pair, who write exactly what you want to read, the characters and personalities that make you enjoy meeting them. . . . I rarely rave on and on about stories, but I am devoted to Lee and Miller novels and stories." --Anne McCaffrey

"These authors consistently deliver stories with a rich, textured setting, intricate plotting, and vivid, interesting characters from fully-realized cultures, both human and alien, and each book gets better."
-Elizabeth Moon

"[A] recommended, powerful pick. . .a fast-paced military and political thriller."-- Midwest Book Review on Ghost Ship

"[D]elightful stories of adventure and romance set in a far future. . .space opera milieu. It's all a rather heady mix of Gordon R. Dickson, the Forsythe Saga, and Victoria Holt, with Lee and Millier's own unique touches making it all sparkle and sizzle. Anyone whose taste runs toward SF in the true romantic tradition can't help but like the Liaden Universe."-- Analog

Another great adventure in the Lianden Universe. I groaned when I read the last page because I knew I'd have to wait months to read what happens next. I love how Theo is growing and changing as a character. I also love seeing some more of people from previous books.
