Overview

Telisa Relachik studied to be a xenoarchaeologist in a future where humans study alien artifacts but haven't ever encountered live aliens. Of all the aliens whose extinct civilizations are studied, the Trilisks are the most advanced and the most mysterious.

Telisa refuses to join the government because of her opposition to its hard-handed policies restricting civilian investigation and trade of alien artifacts, despite the fact that her estranged father is a captain in the United Nations Space Force.

When a group of artifact smugglers recruits her, she can't pass up the chance at getting her hands on objects that could advance her life's work. But she soon learns her expectations of excitement and riches come with serious drawbacks as she ends up fighting for her life on a mysterious alien planet.

    Great Read!

    I am always on the look out for new SF reads. This one has a new twist on SF adventures. The characters are not exactly heroes, but they are very realistic. You can connect with them as well as enjoy the storyline. McCloskey is an impressive writer.

    Mr. McCloskey has written an interesting and thoughtful series. They should be read in order for the full effect.

    One session read...

    Really enjoyed this one. Adventure enhanced by Science Fiction and not Horror. Characters are "real" people, humans and the bug as well. Looking forward to their next encounter/collaboration.

    Good story

    The writing isn't top of the line, but the story makes up for it.
    Lots of action and some interesting concepts.
