about

Jeth Seagrave and his crew of mercenaries are pulled into one last high-stakes mission in this breathtaking sequel to Mindee Arnett’s Avalon, which SLJ called, in a starred review, “an exciting piece of science fiction that keeps up its energy from beginning to end.”

Jeth Seagrave and his crew are on the run. The ITA, still holding Jeth’s mother in a remote research lab, is now intent on acquiring the metatech secrets Jeth’s sister Cora carries inside her DNA, and Jeth is desperate to find the resources he needs to rescue his mother and start a new life outside the Confederation. But the ITA is just as desperate, and Jeth soon finds himself pursued by a mysterious figure hell-bent on capturing him and his crew—dead or alive.

With nowhere to run and only one play left, Jeth enters into a bargain with the last person he ever thought he’d see again: Daxton Price, the galaxy’s newest and most fearsome crime lord. Dax promises to help Jeth, but his help will only come at a price—a price that could mean sacrificing everything Jeth has fought for until now.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Good I'm some sort of masochistic sucker for books that go about systematically tearing down beloved characters. I don't know exactly how, by Arnett manages to take nearly everything - everything - that matters to Jeth, and it was so painful, but so wonderful. Jeth is my favorite kind of character - determined, emotional, but realistic and capable and wonderful. I loved watching him go through this with strength and grit and empathy. Even when he's all but beaten, when he's past the point that anybody could reasonably expect him to come back from, he still has that spark of something that makes him wonderful. This is my favorite kind of character development, when they are pushed past every limit and breaking point, and stripped of everything they rely on and love, until all that's left is Jeth, honest and heartfelt, and you love him. Gah. It was great. I loved getting a sense of more of the world building, especially First Earth, which was super interesting. It was cool to finally see the Pyreans and all that. Overall, a really solid final book in the duology, with strong characters and amazing character development.
