First Josh, now Ash. Josh, Ash and three other humans were part of a space exploratory mission to an artefact in space that was so ginormous that it was picked up by a space telescope. None of the crew members expected to survive but they dismissed this from their thoughts as they concentrated on the mission. When they reached the artefact they discovered that it was damaged. Their engineer managed to repair it upon which it activated. Although they thought that their ship was far enough away to be safe that turned out not to be the case! As the ship was pulled through the now active gateway it started to break up. They all managed to get into (or be put into) escape pods which were then all dispersed onto different vectors. Josh landed on Tesla Terra where he met Cassa. Ash lands on a different planet, Torrian, where he runs into trouble straight away. First it is the heat and then because somebody in power knows of the pods and is looking for them and their contents. In fact learning that tells him that at least one other member of the team might still be alive. Soon he finds himself with some unlikely allies and in a race to find the missing team members, two of whom are women. Once again Susan Smith has outdone herself! Would be enjoyed by sci-fi lovers of all ages.
SE Smith know how to spin a yarn. This book is full of adventures, mass murder of millions, an assassin Looking for the escape pod and the contents. War and rebellion are on their doorstep. Power and greed seems almost like currency. Life means so little to the Legion. A must read.👍
