Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
An artifact of unlimited power becomes the object of human greed and treachery as the sentient starship Boaz and its battle-scarred commander Solomon Carrasco lead a group of planetary dignitaries to a distant planet for a confrontation with destiny. Galactic intrigue combines with military sf in a tightly woven, intricate story with strong male and female characters. Set in the world of the author's ``Spider'' trilogy, this is highly recommended.
