Overview

Nothing sane travels the starway. Today it brings disaster.

In the far future, humanity settles the stars, bioengineering its descendants to survive in a harsh universe. This is the second book in the science fiction series, The Backworlds. A space opera adventure.

Revenge is on Craze's mind. He chews on it every day along with the relentless dust on Pardeep Station. He dreams of grander wealth, enough to make his father choke.

That's the dream consuming him when the interstellar portal opens, spitting out a ship that should no longer exist. A battleship spoiling for a fight. Yet the war with the Foreworlds ended two generations ago.

One wrong move and the shaky truce will end. So will Craze and his friends.

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Mark Coker
The second book in the Backworlds series, this one is just as satisfying as the first book and I look forward to the scheduled third book. Ms. Pax please do not stop at a trilogy.
Goodreads - Maria Violante
Stopover at the Backworld's Edge is a great read. There's plenty of action, beautiful imagery (and I've consistently appreciated M. Pax's ability to create a succint, somehow perfect metaphor), engaging characters, and just a touch of romance. It's consistently suprising, with quite a few twists and turns, and a number of rewards for anyone that's read the first book. I was swept up quickly and read it straight till the end.
