From an ad in Datazine #59: "Someone attacked Mornay and Idyn -- they say it was Blake. Someone killed Avon -- or claims he did. Blake rescued the crew of a damaged ship -- or they could be spies. Or is it all lies? Servalan searches for a truth she can use as the crew of the Liberator seeks escape from the tightening noose."
Summary from a distributor, Agent With Style: "Worlds are being destroyed, and someone is laying the blame at Liberator's door. In spite of the danger, Jenna convinces Blake to rescue the survivors of a sabotaged Federation ship, who prove very untrustworthy guests, making the ship a battleground. And then Avon slips away, against orders, and returns covered with blood, at death's door."
Reactions and Reviews
For fans of space opera with a twist I also recommend the Irene Stubbs novela.... The Void Aflame, Like a Bonfire. It is a little hare to get into, but if you keep reading things start to clear, and the author makes entertaining use of outrageous similes. Not professional writing, but a wonderful imagination.
