From acclaimed short-fiction star Suzanne Palmer comes an action-packed sci-fi caper that launches a high-stakes space adventure trilogy. Fergus Ferguson, repo-man, has one job: find the spacecraft Venetia’s Sword and steal it back from Arum Gilger, ex-nobleman turned power-hungry trade boss. Finding Gilger in the farthest corner of human-inhabited space, a gas-giant harvesting colony called Cernee, was easy. The hard part will be getting past a field of space mines, hacking into the Sword’s compromised AI, and fighting a crew of hostile enemies to take control of the ship. But when a cable car explosion launches Cernee into a civil war, Fergus finds himself caught in the crosshairs. Repossessing the Sword requires him to side with Gilger’s enemies, risk death, and get abducted by aliens. Fergus must learn to set aside his pride—and confront a past he’s been running from his whole life—in order to take back the Sword and simultaneously save Cernee from destruction.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A fun, fast-moving jaunt into the zippier, zanier side of space opera.” Barnes&Noble.com
“[A] fun, little jaunt into a believable backwater with lots of intrigue, fun, and unsettling reminders of how fragile we all can be.” Fanbase Press
“A pulp-style space opera debut complete with aliens, stinging space roaches, and lethal spores that ramp up the dread and increase the hurdles for the heroes.” Library Journal
“Palmer makes short-distance space travel feel as comfortable as riding a bicycle and concludes this entertaining caper with a clever resolution and a hint of intrigue.” Publishers Weekly
“An adrenaline-packed, heist-filled ride…a story that pays homage to the rogue archetype so common to space operas without feeling like a stale copycat…[with] frenetic fight scenes, daring escapes, and tense intrigues.” BookPage
Gilger and Fergus are compelling characters for different reasons, and readers will enjoy watching them face off. The retrieval of the ship by Fergus is also highly entertaining. But ultimately, it is the lovable Fergus that will push readers to just keep reading.” Booklist
“A breakneck-paced and action-packed science-fiction adventure featuring an endearing con artist…Ferguson is a brilliantly developed, multifaceted antihero—deeply flawed yet effortlessly identifiable…This is an undeniably fun read…A nonstop SF thrill ride until the very last page.” Kirkus Reviews
“Wicked, fast-paced, and fun. This is a total romp, and I loved it.” Elizabeth Bear, Hugo-Award winning author
