People are dying, their corpses left savaged and drained of blood. The obvious culprit: vampires. But vampires shouldn’t be able to sneak around Wistful undetected or shadowstep freely inside her body. Soon the station herself becomes oddly uncooperative, leaving Rohan and Wei Li bewildered and all her inhabitants in danger.
Finding and defeating the killer will require a deep dive into the ancient history of Wistful and of the il’Drach people. Into the connections between the Ursans, the wormholes, and the races that preceded them. Into the dark past of a tormented space station that yearns only for death.
Rohan will be forced to fight, and maybe even to kill. He’ll have to face those who bear grudges from his past, the Empire he once served, and his own reluctance to again become the warrior he sometimes needs to be.
I once again returned to the world of Rohan and his job on Wistful, towing ships in. And what a return it was! The mystery that is occurring starts right from the beginning, pulling the reader in and making them wonder what could happen next. It was so great to be back with the familiar characters and seeing them in a new adventure. The action of all of the characters was great, seeing them advance and make decisions that are very true to their characters. It was rich and exciting in all of the right ways.
There are so many strengths to this novel, but what stood out to me the most were the action scenes. They were realistic, even with the addition of the powers that some of the characters possess. It was so beautifully painted with words that the images would just remain in the mind like a movie. Each situation would immediately encourage the reader continue reading until late into the night. The exploration of the world was also fantastic in the fact that it is expanded to a level that satisfies some of the curiosity that had been there from the start of the series while still creating more intrigue into what will be coming in the future.
Rohan is the hero that we all want to be! This series continues to be something that is special and intriguing. I am fully invested into this series and this entry did not disappoint. It blew me away with every twist and turn, adding to a rich world in all of the right ways. This is a novel that will stick with a reader for days, making them ponder what the next adventure will be for Rohan and company. Rohan will continue to pull me along on his adventures and I look forward to them all!
Thank you for taking the time to read my review. As always, happy reading and Stay Great!!
