"The Broken Places is a fast-dance of a magically imagined space trip—true to the playful energy and open-ended adventurous spirit of the legacy. Ethlie has once again given us lots of fun—and it's wonderful to spend some quality time with this great cast of beloved characters."
"Set in a complicated universe full of difficult challenges, screenwriter McDonald's franchise tie-in with the popular TV show is sure to please its target audience. The author weaves the plot threads together ingeniously."
—Publishers Weekly on Waystation

Working long and hard hours to re-link the Systems Commonwealth, the crew of the Andromeda Ascendant deserves some R&R. While Tyr is stuck watching the ship, most of the crew transfer to Paradise Drift, a place where the squad can unwind and have some harmless fun playing in a vast variety of virtual games. Adding to the pleasure is that everything is gratis as the leaders of Paradise Drift want to be become members of the revised Systems Commonwealth.................. However the bone weary crew quickly learn that there is no such thing as a free lunch as sh** happens. Harper is attacked by a woman who believes she owes him from a past transgression and a bounty hunter Steeleblade stalks Beka. However, Captain Hunt wants Director Vandat, but worries about political repercussions cause by his desires and to make things even worse, he loses a fortune in real money at the gambling tables while unbeknownst to him the ship is under attack. R&R is proving more harrowing than any operational mission.............................. The sixth entry, as with the previous Andromeda tales, is a fine science fiction tale that is clearly for fans of the series. The action-packed story line focuses on several members of the ensemble cast as each expects to unwind with a little fun, but instead ends up in some harrowing scenario. This will elate the Andromeda audience, but the multitude of subplots will drive new fans elsewhere. Still Sherwood Smith does a wonderful job with the familiar players as readers will appreciate R&R on Paradise Drift................... Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
