Overview

In the far future, alien technology captured by the Union Earth Privateers has fueled Earth’s tenuous expansion from a single planet to a handful of systems across the Orion Spur.
Victoria Marin, captain of the U.E. Condor, and her crew of Vultures have been running dry for months. In danger of losing her command and her credibility if she can’t locate fresh salvage, she locks onto the distress signal of an alien ship in hopes of valuable cargo. What she finds instead is First Prince Tavram, the heir apparent to one of the largest empires in known space. Tavram’s ship has been crippled after narrowly escaping an ambush and his would-be assassin is coming to finish the job.
The Vultures launch a high risk mission to rescue the prince and recover every last scrap of xenotech they can before the hunter catches up to his prey. But there are more dangers than notorious interstellar assassins when it comes to ferrying alien princes across the stars, and Victoria must contend with dangerous alliances, old grudges, and even her own government if she means to bring her crew home alive. Whether she succeeds or fails, the consequences of her choices will affect the path of all humanity.

If you are a fan of Brin's Uplift series you'll love Vick's Vultures! Much like in that series, Vic's Vultures introduces us to a universe where humanity is taking its first cautious steps on to the galactic stage where it finds truly ancient civilizations that outclass the upstart humans in terms of millenia old technology, and complicated social mores that can and do prove a minefield for an unknowing species new to such interactions. Humans have to be crafty and cunning simply to survive contact with species such as these, and they do much more than that in this page turner of a story. Prepared to be hooked, and eager for the next volume of this crew's adventures!
