This was a bit of a letdown after books 1-6! Once again, you need to have all your books in a row in order to get the full story. Satori has been built a new body, but at the price of her cloak. She is traumatised by John’s death and suffering from depression and self doubt. The team has been split up, Andy taking over John’s empire, Dan off in charge of one of the captured Naga vessels and Beth made captain of the new Satori. Charline is with Beth for the new Satotri’s maiden voyage but has a different path ahead of her and Linda isn’t mentioned. Dan is rushing down to Florida where the link to the new ship has gone silent and there is concern that one or more Naga have taken it over. Beth faces her own challenges as a new Captain with an uncooperative First Officer and a monster(s?) lose on Caraday’s moon base. According to the author, readers have requested that he concentrate on fewer characters! Well, for me, that doesn’t work. The dynamic set up with a team has been lost. Yes there was action but it has all been done (better) in the previous books. I was very disappointed.
