Overview

Meanwhile, on another side of the Universe. . .

Meet Gem ser'Edreth, a wizard with electronics -- and a freelance thief. Deliberately solitary, unencumbered by family or friends, he immerses himself in his profession, rising to a pinnacle of skill so exalted that the planetary crime boss seeks him out with a commission to steal. Refusing the commission, of course, is his first mistake.

Gem's hidden past proves an unexpected liability and his plants to leave the planet go catastrophically awry. Suddenly embroiled in interplanetary politics, a potential interstellar war, and in possession of an ancient object of power an an unwanted cousin, Gem discovers that the mysterious Witness for the Telios may hold the key to his salvation -- or his undoing.


"Finished reading it in the small hours. . .and, to pun ungracefully, it's a Gem.

"All the lovely language they seem to specialise in as well as marvelous characters and a good plot. . .

"It goes on my comfort shelf."

-- Anne McCaffrey

Editorial Reviews

Jennifer Dunne
Fans of Liad will find a setting that is similar enough to easily settle into, with familiar emphasis on the responsibility of belonging to a clan/family/lover/crime syndicate/ship's crew. Yet unlike the Liaden books. . .This is no gentle comedy of manners but a hard-hitting look at a single man's ability to alter destiny by remaining independent and not succumbing to mob mentality, as well as how true love requires individuality. Well worth reading.
Lisa Dumond
Lee and Miller are masters at raising danger, action, passion, and loss to an irresistible pitch, keeping the plot moving ahead at a breathless pace. No one in the genre handles the romantic aspect of science fiction with such a deft and subtle touch, never letting it overpower the storyline or appear tacked on.
Thomas Easton
Readers familiar with the Liaden novels will not be disappointed. Lee and Miller are consistently deft and smooth. The tale has momentum from the first page (or screen) and never lets it lag.
