In this sequel to The Rush’s Edge, Halvor Cullen and the crew of the Loshad return from a lukewarm meeting with the Mudar to an Edge on the verge of war. A vat operative has used every genetically engineered talent and programmed skill she has to infiltrate the heart of the Opposition forces and disrupt their resistance to the Coalition.
In a desperate attempt to stop their enemies, Vivi must confront the specter of her past as the crew petitions the shadowy hacker group Echo to succeed. When the mission goes awry, and they are forced to leave a crewmember behind, the team wonders if their victory against the Coalition will come at all, and if so, at what cost?
Praise for The Rush’s Edge, the first book in the series:
“The unlikely bonds linking crewmembers and the thoughtful exploration of the morality of genetic engineering are sure to draw readers into this well-crafted space opera.”
– Publisher’s Weekly
“Vivid characters, fine action sequences, and thoughtful exploration of prejudices are blended with authority in Smith’s debut.”
